This week it's an IWC party, and the guest of honour is the brand's dynamic CEO, Chris Grainger-Herr. We chat to Chris about just we he shrunk the Big Pilot, the differences between the Big Pilot 43 and the Bigger Pilot, why they decided not to use the bigger 7-day movement in the Big Pilot 43, the future of the 46mm Big Pilot, and how IWC is riding the wave of the changing nature of luxury. But it's not just IWC who got an invite this week.

We also chat with WatchBox director Brian Govberg about building the perfect watch collection for $50K. Of course, we talk about what models he'd buy, but more importantly *why* he'd buy them.
