    Yeah I actually missed this announcement because I thought they were just re-upping the Pan Am ads

    I am a bit obsessed with rainbow watches recently and yes this one is pretty nice. I like this style of diver too. I wonder though if this design will stand the test of time or look outdated in ten years.

    Me too.

    Anyway, I like the TWA version the best.
    I think the style has already stood the test of time, given that it's a reissue of a 1957 design.

    OTOH, rainbow colors might be in or out, and always subject to one's taste. Regardless, it certainly gives the watch unique flair and has proven to be a hit.

    Well the Rainbow versions are limited editions, so they'll probably be in for the couple thousand people who hang onto them. If you like it, I say go for it! I really enjoy my Outerknown version (with the brown dial). Excellent watch.

    Sorry my comment about if the design will last I only meant the rainbow theme, not the design in general.

    Don't give him film references, he doesn't even know who Cary Grant is!

    I asked the wife what she thought, she said 'Best thing about that is the bracelet'. Jesus, well I was thinking of doing a top three worst watches of the year post and it seems that I've already found two of them!

    If I still owned my AMG Benz, this watch would surely be on my wish list.

    The IWC Pilot's watch AMG Edition.
    Reminds me of someone else we know who loves his AMG. ;)

    I saw this a while ago. The IWC AMG watches have historically alwys been Ingenieurs. I can't reconcile make an AMG edition of a pilot's watch. There just isn't any synergy!

    Good analysis but honestly I loose interest. I am so far away from these mega rich speculators buying these super hyped watches.

    I agree with Teddy, these brands are playing the long game, but for sure being completely inaccessible as opposed to 'difficult' to get is not doing them any good.
