    Car wash.
    IMG_4749.jpg
    Check out the jacket. I've had it ever since "Car Wash" was a hit tune on the radio. It used to be the hunting jacket before I got married in 1978. Now it's the chores jacket for the grubby stuff. Earlier today I chopped down a dead plum tree, planted a replacement plum tree and two grape vines and and hand-washed the car.

    Ok, one last trot around the show ring, this time with a Mark XI, to remind us of the pre-date, simple IWC Pilot dials. Unfortunately, the Mark XI isn’t mine. :(

    CDEC3CA0-6DFB-42B9-9785-6D8F76FB80F6.jpeg DFA8E5E5-F471-498A-AB9C-3D61186815D8.jpeg

    By no means perfect, but surprisingly close. I prefer my hands to the XI’s and that mine’s 39mm and not the more traditional 36mm. I’m liking this watch more and more. It has not been off my wrist for more than an hour or two since it arrived.

    As reluctant as I might be to admit it, I think Hodinkee did a good job on this piece. And they’ll be rarer than Mark X or XI IWCs, with only 500 made. (Hey, gotta have some hope that these won’t be going for under $5k on eBay in nine months!)

    BTW, factoid from Wikipedia that I did not know:

    On 1 April 1944, as a result of an error, Schaffhausen was bombed by the United States Army Air Forces. The watch factory was hit by a bomb which failed to detonate after crashing through the rafters. The flames from incendiaries exploding nearby penetrated the building through the broken windows but were extinguished by the company's own fire brigade.”

    The dials say SWISS! ::facepalm1::
