    Love to get my hands on the 1812 someday... or the vintage re-release...

    ...however the flying pigs overhead will have to land before that happens.

    great little compilation!

    The 1812 is indeed a great watch and there are 4 dial versions - unfortunately too expensive now but I wished I had collected all 4 years ago. Too late now

    Wonderful collection! I'd love to own any of them - especially the 1812.

    I agree. Absolutely superb and I would be more than happy with any single one of them.

    Very nice - I like titanium and IWC are one of the few still offering nice ti watches outside of Japan.

    1812 & Ocean for me. All excellent pieces... Is the 1812 a Super Compressor case?

    Yes, it is a super compressor case
    And if I may ask, what could one expect to pay for a 1812 today?

    Every now and then I come across people that I really hate :wink:

    At least you've not got a 3536, that would just be too much

    Great collection

    ... top right actually is a 3536 (the rare steel/white dial model, IWC 3536-003)

    he's got a 3536-003.

    the IWC titanium divers are among my favorite watches of all time. it's a huge pity that IWC dropped titanium from the aquatimer and ingenieur line.

    great-lookin' Bund and Deep One.

    Re: Divers of Distinction from IWC

    do a google search for "Ocean 2000".

    you'll find a number of great articles about the various Bund models along with info about the civilian version...required reading if you count yourself a fan.

    Very nice 8)

    That Gold GST Aquatimer, the Ocean BUND 2000 and the Jacques Cousteau would all supliment my fledgling IWC collection very nicely.

    Wanted - Damasko DA38 or DC80 Green - not the black versions. Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum

    Depending on where you buy it (private/retail) you shouldn't expect a lot of change out of 7k (if not 8k) for a good one
