1973 IWC Vintage Mens Classic Dress Watch, Caliber 403 - Stainless Steel


Item No. 5576

We are pleased to offer today's this restored IWC mens dress watch that presents beautifully. It measures 34mm in diameter without the crown (36mm with the crown) - the same diameter as a Rolex Date watch.

For the movement the company used one of its superior Caliber 403 handwound mechanism with sweep seconds and micrometer regulator and adjustments for three positions.

Housing the fine movement is its classic original steel case with screw back.

The watch is fully IWC parts down to its original fish signed crown, although we believe it most likely would have originally come on a bracelet, and that the lugs have been added to accomodate a strap. The gloss black dial with outer minute track is a perfect refinishing. The movement has been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmaker.

For the finishing touch a new leather 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.
