For various inside-baseball reasons which do not merit discussion in these pages, I have been working hard over the past year at diversifying the outlets to which I contribute. The first fruit of this was my inclusion in the rebooted Issue One of Cycle World. Here’s another example.
Turn to page eighty of Watch Journal to read all about the storied history, and fascinating new products, of the International Watch Company. Long-time readers will recall that I have some nontrivial personal involvement with IWC, having won a titanium-cased Ingenieur watch in 2006 at a rather strange event called the “AMG Challenge”. I beat fifty-nine other civilian drivers and Tommy Kendall to take home the watch; there’s more detail in an earlier post. Last year the mainspring broke and I had to spend quite a few bucks on having it serviced, an event I tactfully refrained from mentioning in the hallowed pages of Watch Journal.
There’s another story I’d like to tell including an IWC watch, but it has to wait until a certain person terminates her relationship with another certain person, and then I can tell it. Gosh. Any more vague than that and I’d basically be a twelve-year-old girl on Facebook. Anyway. The bottom line is that I really dig IWC and this was an easy piece to write.
Look for me in future issues of the magazine as I discuss various matters both horological and, uh, “horological”.
