Like this thread: From Chrono to Auto: the Portuguese "upgrade" debate! i went through some tough decision making recently.
In March, i purchased a 3714-17 when i was traveling in TW. It was my first IWC and it was on my most wanted list for the longest time.
I am a TAG fan and have collected more than 5 TAGs before transitioning to IWC.
When i was at the AD, i got a glimpse of the 5001 that was on display. Because i always wanted a chrono, i ended up purchasing that piece. What a costly mistake that was. Everyday after that i was in agony thinking about the 5001. Finally when i return to US from my trip, i made a decision to sell the 3714 and asked my friend to purchase the 5001 so i could pick it up when i return to TW.
Some might think this was the worst decision anyone could've made but i did it anyways. After 6 weeks of waiting and looking at pictures from the forum, i finally wore my very own 5001 yesterday. I am very happy with the 5001 and yes it was and still is love at first sight. Enough with the talking and on to the pictures. Glad i finally joined you guys and beginning my quest of collecting IWC!
