Great initiative to boost the foundation.
The watch, not that much. Thanks for reminding though the Drive Time is a nice watch often neglected.
what was Mr Biver wearing in that picture ? Is it me or he looks slimmer ?
That appears to be his Heuer-02. He is much slimmer; all that training is paying off.
Here's a version for the Middle East shown at Dubai Watch Week
IWC has also presented a limited edition Portugesier with Eastern Arabic numerals.
I am from the region, and I really don't find it to my taste.
However, it does make the dial a bit more interesting. Never been a fan of printed numerals on dials.
So, an ignorant question, but can you explain a little about the arabic numbers?
Trying to work out why the sequence of the numbers on the dial don't seem to match the sequence of the numbers on the bezel. For example, what resembles a "10" at the 15-minute mark on the dial is preceded by "1 . " on the dial.
But on the bezel, the "10" is at the 9 o'clock position and the "1." at the 6 o'clock position?
If we take the dial, the 12 o'clock position has 60; then it goes 5, 10 etc.. in increments of 5.
The outer rings are both logical sequences of 1 to 15. They both start at roughly the 12 o'clock position, with different spacings.
The 3 o'clock position is 15 on the dial (1 and 5, the five in Arabic resembles a zero).
They should have also updated the date
The "dot" is a zero.
l. is ten for instance.
Very informative; nothing like learning something new everyday.
