Today's offering showcases this very classic and fine Art Deco IWC watch with Breguet numerals.
It was originally designed to be a mens watch - by today's standards it is a small midsize well-suited for someone with small wrists.
Its striking original 14K gold case has a wonderful Art Deco design that compliments its desirable Breguet numerals. It is original Swiss made then imported into Germany for sale.
Powering the watch is its high-grade handwound IWC caliber 76 movement.
Our Master Watchmaker has disassembled it down to its last screw and fully serviced it including replacing overly worn parts with new original IWC replacements (a $495 value). It is running strong for a watch of this design and age. Its movement presents in beautiful condition. Please inquire if you would a photograph of it.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
