WatchProfessor’s take – with the market demanding so much for Genta related pieces, this is definitely going to be a big hit. I’m happy to see it’s not a limited edition but probably available thru official channel only, indeed a very smart move by IWC. The titanium piece felt a lot lighter than the steel. My favorite is the titanium. Then, I think the steel are all very smart; if I must choose one, it’ll be the Aqua color. It’s going to be a hot cake, get to your IWC shop! Run, don’t walk!
