WOW!!!!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
A classic look, one of the best combos IMO!

Enjoy it & wear it in good health!

BTW - Is this your first IWC or do you have others?

Hi,

Thanks for the comments...

This is my first IWC.... in the main, i have usually been a big Rolex Fan.. (i still am)..and they do account for the most of my collection, but i just fancied something different.

I've had my eye on the 3717 for sometime now.... ideally if i had a little more money, i would like to have bought the doppelchronograph.. but it's still out of my range for the time being.

Hey Mike

MANY CONGRATULATIONS

It looks a dandy watch.

May I ask if the pushers are actually tapered in shape - I'm looking at the one at 2 o'clock and thinking it looks as though it gradually narrows towards the tip or are these eyes playing tricks on me? :001_rolleyes:


Enjoy it and be well

Hey Zin... think your eyes are playing tricks.. either that or my photography!

They are parallel not tapered.

Legibility is good but it is the hands and 15 min markers that glow like the points of a compass! ..... not all the hour markers as you may think
