IWC 3777 v.2


Recommended Posts

Has anyone picked up the newest version yet? Angus posted a v2 in the middle of Oct coming from the Mark factory.

I'm curious what they've improved and what they've made worst.

Thanks!

There are issues with the triangle @ 12 on some dials, it is crooked. The pushers fall off and MUST be secured with thread lock. The crown is sharped edged and the IWC-symbol on the crown is much clearer on gens. Some people see issues with the day/date wheels and the AR, but I personally can't see them. OK, the biggest issue is the movement, the 79320/ETA-7750 is much better and smoother. But this can be changed for 400-500$.

Thanks higginsd for the information. I went to the IWC store at NYC today, tried the 3777 (and a few other watches), it does look gorgeous, so I am about to order a rep.

 

One last question, how does the 3777 compare with the 3717, in terms of the closeness to gen? Many thanks again.

... I went to the IWC store at NYC today...

I wish I could do this also.  ;)  Only 7000km away from my home - and I love this city!

 

I can't say much about the closeness of the 3717, but all I read about is that it is one of the closest reps in the market. The 3777 is nearly perfect out of the box as I think (if you don't get a crooked triangle). After installing a gen dial and a gen crown you can call it a Super-rep. A gen 79320 on top and even an AD could only check the serial and find out it's a rep. OK, then you payed round about 1500$ for the complete watch. But have a look at the price of the gen...

Higinsd, thanks for the kind reply again.

 

Glad to hear that 3717 is a good quality rep. Style wise, after some "soul searching" I am also leaning towards the 3717 now mainly due to my small wrist size. I wish you could fit the 3777 bracelet on the 3717 but I guess that won't work because of the different case diameters.

 

I plan to order a 3717 shortly. If you know where to source and install a gen crown and maybe also a gen dial, please advise. Many thanks!
