Monday Mailbag: Tim & Claudio: IWC vs. Panerai, Chronograph Questions, Collectible Watches

Subscribe to WatchUWant Watch Reviews Channel: Get our APP! Tonight, Tim Mosso and Claudio Terjanian, Retail Director of Govberg Jewelers, combine to answer your live and emailed questions about luxury watches. We open with a discussion of practical complications in sub-$10,000 steel luxury sports watches from IWC watches and Panerai. Claudio plays This-or-That with the Panerai Luminor GMT PAM 1088 and the limited edition IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Rudolph Caracciola 3807-02/380702. We continue with an introduction to Claudio and his experience in the luxury watch industry. After fourteen years with Franck Muller, CVSTOS, and Roger Dubuis, Claudio has joined Govberg as Director of Retail for the company's industry-leading showrooms. Claudio introduces us to his history as a watch collector including the college graduation Rolex Datejust from his father that opened his account as a collector. Claudio describes his "grail watch" as the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Carbon Skeleton Flying Tourbillon RDDBEX0572, a Geneva Hallmark carbon tourbillon sports watch with a combination of old-world craftsmanship and avant garde design. Tim and Claudio explain the difference between cam chronographs and column wheel chronographs for a viewer, and we discuss the relevance and horological value of the IWC Big Pilot's watch 5009. Given the choice between the standard Big Pilot's watch 5009-12 and the special Big Pilot's Watch Edition Le Petit Prince with sunburst blue dials, Tim and Claudio pick their favorites. Tim fields two questions about Jaeger LeCoultre by offering his insights into the collectibility of the Master Compressor Chronograph and the 2017 blue dial Master Ultra Thin Reserve de Marche in stainless steel.
