1978 IWC Vintage Mens Full Size Quartz Watch, Blue Dial with Date - Stainless Steel

IWC

Item No. 5168

Today's offering showcases this superior full size mens IWC in gorgeously restored condition. It is an uncommon model and measures 34mm in diameter without the crown by 42mm long.

It has a distinctive very retro case that has an unusual and interesting twist-off waterproof style design and a navy blue dial.

Powering the watch is its IWC caliber 2405 quartz movement, an ETA movement finely finished by IWC.

The watch is in true expertly restored condition and presents as mint. The dial is a perfect refinishing. For the finishing touch we have installed a new leather alligator grain strap.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
