    Starting the week here with this one.

    5441 ws MG_0333.jpg

    Short story about how I came to fall for this model: I was at a GTG talking to a collector about how the Portuguese re-issue with the spelled out IWC seemed interesting to me…at least in pictures. He replied “I know that one, in fact I have it!” A brief discussion ensued and he promised to bring his next time. The following year at our next GTG, imagine my surprise when he showed up with this:

    Not just one, but the complete SS/RG/PT set!

    My goodness, what a treat!

    Jubilee trio plus 2 IMG_3912.jpg

    There were 100 of these sets made, but many were broken up by buyers who wanted to reduce their cost a bit.

    Interesting note is that the owner said his favorite was the SS…because of the nice contrast between the hands/markers and the case.

    That night I became deeply hooked and knew I would probably come to own one someday. You all know how stories like this end… a year and a half later, I had my own SS Jubilee. YaY!

    @donkii beautiful dial on that Carrera! What about the hands - can we get a closer photo? My Carrera is similar vintage (manual-wind '60s) and its hands' lume is a similar color.

    Today I have been adding to my "Ex-military" claim for when it's time to put my FOIS for sale on eBay ;)

    Very handy when doing timed shooting programs on the range. Love the feeling of activating the pushers instead of staring at some digital display.

    Some patina but I must say I like it like this, gives it some life :)
    If you mean that the hands appears to be black, they aint, some shadow from me hanging over the watch makes them "black". The lume has a nice color tho :)
