Today we are pleased to offer this superior caliber 89 IWC. It is full size, measuring 35mm in diameter.
It has had a true expert restoration and presents almost as mint on the wrist. The dial has been expertly refinished. The case is scratch-free, and the watch has all IWC parts down to the hands and winding crown.
Powered by one of the most highly-regarded manually wound movements ever made, talked about in the same sentence as Pateks, the watch is rich in technical details.
For those unfamiliar, the caliber 89 movement was designed by IWC's renowned technical director Albert Pellaton.
As part of the restoration, the movement has been serviced by a Master Watchmaker and is keeping perfect time.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
A five and a half decade old IWC that presents on wrist as fully restored!
