Here is a wonderful and rare, all original IWC dress watch from 1952. The silver dial is in fine condition, with the script IWC logo and golden wedge hour markers, double at 12 o’clock and the characteristic steel spheres demarking the minutes. There are a few tiny spots around the dial and some marks at the top edge of the dial at around 11 to 1 o’clock. The dauphine hands are in good condition with some corrosion showing.

The stainless steel bezel is in good condition showing overall wear, perhaps most notable at around 3 and 9 o’clock. The stainless steel case with the original fish crown and elegantly curved lugs is in fine condition with some overall wear, mostly at the lugs. The case back is in fine condition, with some overall wear.

The watch comes on an after market leather strap and buckle of good quality.

Inside the watch, IWC’s superb 852 movement with the Pellaton winding system beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2023 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.

The lovely dial and overall condition of this watch makes it a true joy to wear and it will put a smile on your face every time you strap it on your wrist. This is a watch that will fit nicely into any vintage collection.

Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.

NB! Note that we are based in Switzerland and that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
