1962 IWC Vintage Mens Classic Watch, Caliber 401 - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5525

Today's offering showcases this classic and all original IWC mens watch. It is full size for a vintage dress watch, measuring 34mm in diameter without the crown - the same size as a mens Rolex Date watch.

For the movement the company used one of its superior Caliber 401 handwound with sweep seconds and micrometer regulator.

Housing the fine movement is its original and timelessly designed steel waterproof style case.

It is fully IWC down to the original dial and hands and what appears to be an original fish signed crown done in an early three-dimensional style with detail.

The case, which does not appear ever to have been polished, is near mint. The dial has toned to a sepia tone.

Our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement.

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