The IWC FA Jones Limited Edition Pink Gold (Dial Shot)  0 Comments


IWC FA Jones Calibre was launched in Singapore on 27th September 2005 at a very swanky and private affair at San Marco's Restaurant in The Fullertron. All three versions of the watch was featured and the 50 guests all attended wearing their IWC watches.

Will the FA Jones be a successful watch? Its quite an interesting and important piece for IWC. Its an important commemorative watch to honour the founder of the company as well as a move by the watchmaker to return to its roots of basic watches without complications. The delivery however is not basic with all the best materials and latest manufacturing techniques being adopted for its production. Unlike the original FA Jones pocket watch that this was modelled on, the new wristwatch will feature sapphire crystals on both sides and a faux enamel dial. While it harks back to a more romantic feel for the classic watch feel, this watch will probably last a very long time for its owner. Looking at the movement, its a simple Calibre 98 with huge balance wheel and large jewels - two very distinctive features. The most distinctive being the regulating adjustment arm. This watch is truly quite a draw on the wrist.
