Hello Stephan,

Thank you for the information! The IWC 3711 yellow gold version pictured here is stunning! I'd love a gold watch to add to my collection. I wonder about the Trithium dial--do you think there is anything to worry about--any negative effects? If no, any idea where one might find a 3711 yellow gold version? Many thanks! Patty
