      I got lucky and pi ked this one up for $60 last year after hunting for probably a year. The crystal is scratched some but I don't care. Way better proportions for me than the mdv106

              Took me less than 12 hours to sell my Bond SMP. Been wearing my new watch for the last few days. I'll see if I can get a pic up later today.

              Hint: It's another blue faced dial.

                    It's an IWC Mark XVIII Le Petit Prince version.

                          Selling the SMP? Even after I purchased the micro-adjust clasp for it, the bracelet still bothered me for some reason. It took me a while to realize that it was the fact that the bracelet didn't taper. My PO and old Speedy bracelets both tapered to 18mm but this one is a constant 20 mm throughout. It made it more chunky and for some reason would annoy me whenever I'd bend my wrist. At that point I could try spending another $350-$400 looking for a used Speedy style bracelet to put on it or cut my losses and get a new watch.

                          Plus after owning the IWC Portuguese I realized that IWCs are gorgeous. It's hard to capture in pictures, but in person all the little details are amazing and the proportions on the watches are perfect.

                            This is a beautiful watch...

                              IWCs are a love or hate thing it seems with WIS. I find them attractive as it was a Big Pilot 5002 that got me into wanting to own a high end watch. I can't really say what 1 thing I love about them but the whole package is just there. I'd probably get tarred and feathered in some circles by mentioning this but I would rather own an IWC than a JLC as I do not find JLCs to be that attractive even though people gush over the Reverso. I'd rather own a Cartier Tank over a Reverso.

                              Nice pick up!

                                Congrats man. Did you buy the one DavidSW had? I was eyeing it... I don't need another pilot watch, but hell if that LPP version isn't gorgeously done.
