Congratulations @Arlington.Beech ! ๐Ÿ™Œ I also have Hamilton khaki field mechanical and I am also wishing to upgrade one day for IWC mark. Fortunately/unfortunately my hammy is still fine :D

commented on Which Classic Simple Flieger? ยท

I personally like to have a polishing with this simple dial, to make it little less tooly and just tad

more flashy. I love IWC Mark XX and Laco is offering something similar but for substantially less money. Just and idea to add for all of the above, depending on what u like.

This is their flieger pro that you customise how you like

Consider citizen tough, definitely an upgrade from citizen garrison

Great specs, 200m wr and solid solar movement

The other option is to hunt for an icon, which is Hamilton khaki field which has a real military history from WWI. Itโ€™s not to far from your budget or you can search for used. I personally love mechanical movement , there is something romantic in this winding and it is a reminder of the watch field and historical background. It is also 80 hours power reserve so mine is like always running even though i rotate it with other watches. And let me tell you, this one is a strap monster!

Yes I agree. I bet itโ€™s like with the woman. But, actually my wife is my crush from the first sight soโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‚

Yea, and I heard few times that IWCโ€™a donโ€™t hold the valueโ€ฆ from my experience even 15-20 years old Markโ€™s are like 70% of AD price. At this point it seems pointless to look for used.

The SM300 diver example was really not greatest ๐Ÿค”. If you look for automatic and regular man size than prices are also high even for 20 years old.

But I get your point and I admit its validity. Thank you ๐Ÿ™
