For a mechanical watch a long power reserve can make them much easier to live with.
This watch is still on the IWC website showing a price of ,400.00 USD, although I think the 1000 piece run has been sold out.
There is no chance of breaking the mainspring by over winding even if you intentionally try to exceed the 8 days limit.
A clever clutch system lets you know with an audible/tactile clicking felt through the easy to turn crown.
Even when brand new, Swiss Army watches offer excellent value; as estate watches it’s hard to find better.
The movement powering this watch is the venerable 25 jewel Swiss made Valjoux 7750, not the Swiss or Chinese made clone movement.
Including the balance of the factory warranty plus a 1 year extended Bill Le Boeuf Jewellery warranty the watch is estate priced at 470.00 CAD. Watches have been getting larger for many years now.
