Today's offering showcases this gorgeous IWC mens dress watch in a vintage period correct unsigned 18K gold plated and steel case.
For the movement the company used one of its superior Caliber 423 handwound engine with dual shock absorbers, gold jewels settings, and micrometer regulator.
It is full size for a vintage dress watch, measuring 35mm in diameter without the crown - in between the diameters of a Rolex Date watch and a Rolex Datejust - and a full 45mm long.
It presents in expertly restored condition and presents beautifully. The gilt printing on the meticulously restored dial could pass as IWC factory done to the naked eye.
The photo couldn't just justice to this one...it presents beautifully!
As part of the restoration the movement has been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmaker. It is keeping extremely accurate time.
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.
