IWC International Watch Co was founded by American watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones in 1868.
In the mid century, IWC rolled out its famed Caliber 89 movement. This mechanically-wound movement powered IWC models from the 1940s until the early 1990s. It gained a reputation for exceptional accuracy and longevity. Many of the early models are still fully functional and this watch is one of them.

This lovely vintage IWC from 1971 is in stunning condition. All correct IWC nomenclature of the period and full serial number are present inside the caseback. Lovely, flawless dial.

The crown is original and in very good condition, so is also the dial - like it was made yesterday. The service history of this watch is unknown but the watch keeps time perfect and got long powerreserv.
