9kt Yellow Gold
Here we have a beautiful IWC manual wind, housing the workhorse movement cal 89 in a 32mm 9kt gold case. This has a whitish silver dial with applied gold arabic numerals and hands. The case is slim, with a narrow crown and short lugs, so this watch has a subtle feel on the wrist and slides easily under a shirt cuff.
The case back has a decorative engraving, with the gold case having a mirror finish.
The dial has been professionally restored so is in mint condition.
The watch dates to late 50s to early 60s.
The Cal 89 has a long history, produced between 1946 and 1979 and utilizes a Breguet hairspring. It was also used in the Mark XI, probably the most famous military timepiece and many other respected IWC models. It is worth any collector reading up on the importance of this movement.
We have fitted this with a black soft quality leather strap with a gold plated buckle.
This is a great choice for someone in search of a high quality dress watch, in excellent condition, without jumping out (what we like to call 'under the radar').
This watch uses the IWC manually wound Cal 89.
This has 17 jewels and a power reserve of 36 hours.
Frequency of 18,000 bph.
The watch is in overall excelent condition with a perfectly clean dial, scratch free crystal and lightly hand polished case with minimal wear. The movement has been serviced by us so is clean and keeping excellent time.
The strap is not brand new but has not been worn more than a few times.
