Got this for my 21st birthday in the mid 90's. Still goes and only had battery changed twice!

In Melbourne for weekend, been looking at an Aquis for a while. Tried one on and got a price in one store told them I'd be back tomorrow to purchase went for a walk off Burke street mall saw a shop that said 15% off storewide was lucky enough that they had the Aquis and they were 40.5% off got the last two one with grey dial and blue bezel for my brothers 40th and the black dial for myself. So lucky and happy with the purchase.

Bought a few fake Daniel Wellingtons when recently in SE Asia.

Anyone been able to get them to actually last?

For most people $10000 worth of watches would not be considered very humble....
Humble compared to what you can pay I guess, people have different priorities, I don't buy a packet of cigarettes for $30 every day for example. There would be several thousand there but not 10!

Just added this IWC Pilot to my very small watch collection. It's simple but I really liked the simplicity in its design. Not a fan of all the complications of other watches. I have my Apple Watch as a daily driver, and it has enough stuff on it.

Originally thought your Speedie was the Professional so yes maybe $10000 a touch high ..nice collection though.
Like you, most of my favourite watches also have a black dial.

For me, IWC make the best watches based on design

My favourite is the yacht club which can be worn casual or in formal settings.

Nice, very nice.

I tried this beast on yesterday and it might be a love affair I have to consummate:

I tried it on again AND my wife says "buy it!" and I still haven't. But... you know it's going to happen eventually.

How much do you really love your wife? Because I really love that watch.

Decided I'll get myself a graduation present in the form of a watch at the end of the year. At the moment the Oris Artelier Complication is leading the charge as it's a good all rounder. Undecided about the blue or rose-gold design.
