That´s an easy choice: IWC Big Pilot Perpetual. And when everybody else is looking up on the big bens around the world I will be looking down on my wristwatch, watching how the day, date, month and year all changes at once. Ahhh...isn't being a horolofile a lotta fun!?
Yeah... I know. You're probably yawning a bit now. "Oh... so... Mr. Kristian Haagen bought another watch? What's so interesting about THAT?" Well, actually. I think this is kind of interesting. Not because it's an IWC, nor because it's a Big Pilot. But because it's features a perpetual calendar movement and eventhough is (was... it's long sold out) priced very nicely!
I am rapidly moving onto the category "Old Fart". I was recently reminded of this dilemma, when I bought back a watch I sold two years ago: a stunning IWC Big Pilot ref. 5002. Maybe this is a reaction to the blown-out-of-proportion-prices that is poluting my horological passion these days.
Recently enjoyed the company of some dear friends who share my passion for watches. Three of the watches found on my table were rarer than rare. One actually is unique as the Linde Werdelin OktoPus shown here is only made in one single example. Pretty nifty to have such a rare watch. One would think it came from an Only Watch auction, but no Sir. This watch was especially made for the lucky owner. I guess a lot of sucking up to Morten Linde and Jorn Werdelin was needed!
