1969 IWC Vintage Mens Midsize Handwound Buckley Dial Dress Watch, Caliber 422 - 18K Gold


Item No. 5921

Today's offering showcases this elegant and very high grade IWC mens watch.

Powering this watch is the company's impressive handwound caliber 422 movement, rich in fine workmanship and technical merit.

Housing the fine movement is its original classic retro styled 18K gold case with downward turned lugs, marked with IWC's Probus Scafusia hallmark. Its simple so-called Buckley style Roman dial and semi-cushion case give it a great high-grade vintage dress look.

As a mens midsize it is well proportioned for someone with smaller wrists.

It is original down to the dial and hands, and the luxurious gold dial is untouched.

Our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement which is running very accurately. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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.
