    Selling or keeping my Le Petit Prince Chrono

    Hi guys

    Maybe stupid to start a topic for this... But here I go:

    I'm doubting about selling or keeping my IWC chrono Le Petit Prince...

    Reason it's an expensive based on a 7750. All my other watches are manufacture movements. I bought it when I was planning to buy a Big Pilot but that was to big for my wrist (always regretted not buying the big pilot).

    What would you guys do:

    - sell and take the loss
    - keep it and put it on bracelet and use it as a daily beater.


    Thnx

    I’d keep it. I’m very pleased with mine.

    Some may criticize the movement is not in-house.

    My 2cents is that IWC got the best finishing in this price range.

    I would take a 7750 over many in-house movements. Honestly, it just seems silly that you would sell a wonderful watch for such a petty reason.

    You've already decided, too much money. Sell it.

    If the use of the 7750 is something you consider a flaw or shortcoming, there's nothing anyone can say to make it better. Many watch aficionados have the preference for in-house movements at this luxury/prestige level, so while I don't agree with your reason for disliking the LPP, I do understand.
    Looks like it's time to move it along for something in-house.

    It might be funny but my two 7750 based are extremely precise. Will it make a difference in keeping value? They introduced new pilots with inhouse but how much I house are they :)

    I own watches that have in-house movements and ETA movements. I actually prefer ETA movements over most of in-house movements because in my limited experience the watches ETA movements have been more accurate and they will cost less to service down the road.
    If I were you, I'd keep that watch. It is a beautiful watch.

    It depends, what other watch are you planning to buy in its place?

    what's wrong with 7750 ??!. these Calibers are a workhorse and have stood the test of time..
    since you asked . i would definitely keep it. it's a great looking watch. plus, it's one of the very very few pilot models that looks great on a Metal Bracelet.

    besides. purchasing (and eventually servicing) watches with in-house caliber cost a lot more money than watches with an ETA Mvmnt that a competent watchmaker can service it for you.

    wear it and enjoy it
