My Vintage Ingenieur

After many years waiting, at last I could get my first (maybe the only one in my life) great watch, an IWC Ingenieur Vintage.

It was a dream I had for a long time, that began when I still was a child, and culminated few days ago. I am so happy that I do not fit in me...

Linked below, if you feel like that, there is a larger presentation (and more pics) at "Relojes Especiales Forum", in spanish:

These are some pics of my new creature:












Best place for a watch, the wrist…



Sorry about my bad english, and thanks for reading...

:thanks

That watch is stunning. I wish they made this with a smaller case so I can wear one.

Enjoy the watch, I doubt it'll be your one and only IWC, this is an addiction and it has only begun...:-!

Congratulations! That's a lovely watch indeed! Enjoy and wear it in good health.

I checked the link you provided and even though I only understand a few words of Spanish, I see that you have written a great presentation of the entire Vintage line and your watch, including a bunch of great pictures! Very impressive!

Kind regards,

Cinq

Beautiful watch, congratulations. And what a special feeling it is, getting your first -and maybe only- IWC :-!

I still remember the day I got my Portuguese Chrono, even though it's almost 7 years to the date (March '03). I will confess that over the years, I've literally spent hours looking at these watches in the windows of jewelers and watch-stores.

On the day I got mine, I almost walked away without making the purchase. After all, it's a lot of dough. Thankfully, my wife was with me and reminded me of my dream. And why, for all those years, I had been transferring $$ to that dedicated account .....

I doubt there is a 2nd IWC in my future (I paid more for it than all other watches combined), but I feel extremely privileged to own just this one.

PS - she's on my wrist as I type this post (and has been since the start of the year)

What a great piece.... looks fantastic on your wrist

Enjoy this one for many years....

I heard a great saying a day or so ago...

"One never owns a great timepiece - but rather keeps it safe for the next generation"

Your purchase looks like it runs along those line

Enjoy

I don't know what else to say that hasn't been said already so I'll piggyback other's comments that it is truly remarkable and big congratulations on keeping the dream alive until culmination!
