Part 4 IWC is Kurt Klaus...the year the Caliber 5000 was launched

Unlike today, the early years had NO groups of watch writers and bloggers who appear to praise all the brands...and own only 2 watches.


Thoese days, collectors like us visited the factories on our own...and got to know many of the people there.

There were NO blogs, no magazines.....yet.

I think the world is BETTER today.
But watch bosses have to remain humble.
Money changes people.

The honesty and humility are NO longer there.
at least at management.

Kurt is a private man, humble...and truthful...helpful and kind.
A watchmaker of the people.

He has made IWC what it is.
His memory is not so good today.

But...what saddens me is that he is given a small desk at the open office.
And young men, who have no real loyalty, except for the dollar/chf are the people who run the show.

There are a few good men...they are my friends.

And the only reason why I support IWC today.

Watchmaking is personal.
