1966 IWC Vintage Mens Classic Dress Watch, Caliber 402 - 18K Gold


Item No. 6976

We are pleased to offer today this IWC mens dress watch that presents beautifully. It measures 34mm in diameter without the crown - the same diameter as a Rolex Date watch.

For the movement the company used one of its superior caliber 402 handwound mechanism with sweep seconds, dual shock absorbers, and micrometer regulator.

Housing the fine movement is its classic original 18K gold.

Except for the winding crown, the watch still has all of its original IWC parts. Its dark champagne dial is original and untouched, just short of mint.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled the watch down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.

For the finishing touch a new leather strap has been installed making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
