    Default Why did IWC stop making this watch

    I don't understand when brands do this.... it is probably the most popular Portuguese they ever made and yet stopped selling it fairly early on into its production.. any ideas..?

    Because they are stupid lol.
    That is hopefully going to be my next acquisition, well something like it anyway.
    Great looking chronographs in my opinion, real classic looking pieces.
    They are available for under 3k if you look hard enough too.

    Mark.

    As we all know, IWC have made some really stupid decisions in the last 20 years.

    Aquatimer with internal bezel? No, lets scrap it. It's a crap idea, not at all a signature model.
    Mark series like we supplied to the UK in the war? No, tell you what, we'll keep the name, but make it into a B-Uhr, we made those too. For the Luftwaffe, dontcha know.
    CLassic Portuguese? No, scrap it. It is just not, errr, LOUD enough.
    Fools. Serious idiots
    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested
