IWC Watchspotting @Airtrophy Knokke

Airplanes, beaches, booze and watches. This could have been a new Post Malone track. In fact, it’s a short description of the air rally I spectated in Knokke, Belgium.

The air trophy had a STOL competition. What is STOL? STOL is an acronym for a Short Take-Off and Landing aircraft, which have short runway requirements for take-off and landing.

Watch this link and you will get it.

To be honest, it kind of is the most boring sport you could do with an airplane.
On the other hand, a sport which involves airplanes will always be cooler than any sport with a ball, racket or bicycle.

Anywho, I was invited by a friend who knew some people over at IWC. Of course we went for the watches, and oh boy was this a watchspotting paradise.
