This auction is for a scarce example of a men’s International Watch Company (IWC) watch with elegant BLACK DIAL, STAINLESS STEEL CASE and high-grade original pocket watch mechanism with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, FOUR RAISED & SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS and SWAN NECK MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING that dates to 1911.

This timepiece features a new handsome BLACK enameled dial in excellent condition, professionally restored to its original status and perfectly done, absolutely no chips of abuse. This gorgeous, men’s wristwatch by IWC features a 60 minute checkered outer track border, gold hour markers, gold steel Louis XVI filigree hands and a recessed sub-seconds dial with 60 second outer chapter and “sweep” gold steel seconds hand. Signed International Watch Co – SCHAFFHAUSEN in gold enameled lettering below the hour marker 12.

It is a registered design model that features a three piece STAINLESS STEEL case that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. STAINLESS STEEL case, new custom made, fantastic, build specially for this excellent IWC movement. The lugs are in great condition while the winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side.

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a spotless manual wind gold plated high-grade mechanism with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, FOUR RAISED & SCREWED in GOLD JEWEL SETTINGS and SWAN NECK MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. The barrel plate is stamped the most famous marking the "Probus Scafusia", which today still marks the authenticity of the IWC. Also is signed the movement serial number #511,132, dating the watch to 1911 and is signed +31457. The movement is a Lep.c.52 – 18lig.H6 caliber.

This beautiful wristwatch has the pristine Original movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

This is a “NAIL SET” watch so you don’t pull the crown out to set the time. Instead, you press the little button near the crown IN and then move the crown to set the hands, releasing the button once you’re finished. It’s easy, so don’t worry about getting the hang of it!

It is fitted on a new 20mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with STAINLESS steel buckle that is vintage style and goes great with this wonderful watch.

Diameter (with crown): 53.00 mm
Diameter (without crown): 48.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter: 43.00 mm
Thickness: 15.00 mm

This cleaned, oiled and regulated antique watch winds and sets very smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
