1972 IWC Vintage Mens Dress Ultra Thin Watch, Caliber 185 - 18K White Gold


Item No. 5936

Today's offering showcases this very uncommon and all-original white gold IWC mens dress watch.

Vintage IWC's are seldom found in white gold. For the movement the company used its high grade caliber 185 ultra thin mechanism which is handwound with dual shock absorbers and adjusted to five positions.

Housing the very fine movement is its elegant original 18K white gold signed IWC case. It is fully original down to the dial, hands, and winding crown.

The classic dial, which has great Deco revival style white gold markers, is untouched.

The movement, which is near pristine, has just been fully serviced and is running strong and true. For the finishing touch a new calf-skin 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.
