Here is my new IWC Portofino, the entry level IWC offering. (International Watch Company, Switz.)

It's modestly priced at 2.3 and the size has been increased in this new model to 38mm from 34mm which is too small.

I apologize in advance if anyone is offended by the photos. I didn't design it, I just bought it.

Why would someone be offended RM? That is a beautiful watch you have there but I thought you were finished buying for a while.

I showed mr ladyluck some of your watch collection as he is in the market for a new watch. We are just trying to get ideas of what he might like. Anyway, he says "Wow!!! That rodent guy has more watches than you have shoes I bet." He may very well be correct

Rodentman, someone was saying you were gone earlier today. I figured you were just hiding behind a pile of nuts or watches. Glad you're still here. Love the watch!!!! Very elegant!

I saw something dead in the road today, I was afraid it was RM. After not hearing from RM for a while, I had feared the worst. Thank goodness it wasn't him! Glad to see you are still alive RM!

I'm full of surprises. There are still some issues...

The watch is really quite special. It's a simple dress watch, but the lug shape and angle give it a eunuch look. Can I say eunuch? I just did.

The price is quite reasonable for an IWC, and it is very accurate, about a half a second off in 4 days.

I am anxious to wear it to woik tomorrow.

>>Glad to see you are still alive RM!<<

Thanks, Nicky. They're still after me, but they just nicked my tail a bit. I'm very quick. Like a yipmunk. You don't see them dead in the road. Someday they'll see that more people want me alive than dead.

It's a beautiful timepiece Rodentman, but I'm sorry to say that I AM horribly offended by the pictures, and your statement that 34 mm is too small.

As well as the fact my meager watch collection can't hold a candle to yours.

But whose collection can?

Thank you for sharing with us.
