    IWC trifecta

    This watch was mine for a brief 24 hour period in September:




    I had a trade with a fellow vintage collector for my Seamaster caliber 591, but we both had some regret so we swapped back the next day. He called me last week to take me up on my standing offer to buy it. He scored an incredible JLC triple calendar from the 40's so he was willing to part with this. I don't think I can write a check any faster! Now I have the perfect set of vintage IWC IMO:

    18K rose/pink gold caliber 89 on the left / 18K yellow gold caliber 401 on the right:




    Stainless steel caliber 854x (haven't had it opened yet to confirm which incarnation):




    Gotta love starting the year off by bagging your #1 Most Wanted watch!

    Thanks guys! Ozy, you have to stop letting your goats have keg parties. They don't know when to say when.

    It's gonna happen. The tough part is letting the requisite pieces go to fund it.
