Well, this story sucks because it doesn't have me owning a watch or even any pictures to share...after a long stroll in Rome with my wife, we were exhausted but I spotted an IWC store so we made our way there...the clerk, a younger gentleman was first class...Royal treatment...took all the watches I was looking at, explained the complications with more enthusiasm than I had ever seen...

he noticed I was keen on the Yacht Club blue dial but was also very fond of the Pilot line of watches. I explained that I had just divested from my IWC Portuguese because it wore too small on my wrist. But the Pilot line wore a little too sporty....

so here's the surprise. He asked if he could show me a Special edition watch for the flagship stores....he disappeared out back and came back with a beautiful IW 3777-06... A Pilot Petit Prince special edition...Blue, dial, Chrono, Day & 3-dates, just gorgeous.....!! It was a 42mm, but wore larger on my wrist....he was also carrying a strap made by a famous italian shoe maker in a light faded brown town (alligator strap)....

the he combo was superb, the price UNBELIEVABLY low....! I left to have a drink and "discuss" it with the wife. We lost track of time and I tried calling them several times but by the time I came back, the store was closed...

my flight leaves tomorrow morning....way too early for me to be able to go get it.....so disappointed...need Forum cheering up.... :-(

here's a I found online but with just a calf leather strap.....what a gorgeous watch....

Less than €5k including the special alligator strap and a clasp VAT not included. I would have to work out the VAT refund if applicable. Compared to the Spitfire model..........that's a steal!

I just visited the (brandnew) IWC boutique in Amsterdam and considered buying it. (I still regret not buying the Le petit prince IWC Mark XVII limited, with same sun-ray dial.)
The retail price over here is €5600 including 21% vat. I think you can get it refunded on the airport when leaving the country. It is indeed an amazing watch!
