Say hello to my new little friend – the IWC Classic Pilots Chronograph (original 3706 ‘Flieger’). I am a huge fan of timepieces. Not only are they pretty much the only real Man-sessory (man-accessory), but they can tell you so much about a person. Take a simple Rolex Explorer – its subtle, classy, a bit dressy and its a Rolex. I would assume the owner much like their watch- well dressed, but subtle. Being that it is a Rolex, I would assume the person either likes Rolex’s, or they wanted a nice watch, but didn’t know much beyond the standard Rolex, Omega, Tag and Breitling.
I am an IWC fan. Their watches are classic, not too over the top, but sporty. I feel the Pilots Chronograph just suits me, because it exudes my qualities- subtle but sporty, classic, clean and functional. I also like the fact that IWC is a bit less recognized as a brand, so it will only be recognized by those who care. I hope to pass this on to my unborn son as an heirloom someday, hopefully he will appreciate it as I will.
