Vintage International Watch Company Schaffhausen Manual Wind Watch With 18 Carat Gold Case and Back. Fancy Curved Lugs
This is a stunning all original example of an early manual wind IWC in sought after gold case with lovely white dial. The case is in very nice condition and the dial is also lovely for its age. The plexi-glass crystal is also like new. It is powered by a manual winding IWC signed 17 jewel movement and it is working very well.
The white dial is in excellent condition. It has gold coloured batten hour markers with numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12, along with the IWC Schaffhausen text and Swiss in black italic print
The gold tone hour and minute hands are in great condition with the matching second hand.
The 18 Carat Gold case is in good condition and it a good size at 36mm diameter. It is in very good condition for its age but does have a small indent at 9 o’clock and minor marks and knocks from wear over the years.
The gold snap fit case back still fits tightly. It is stamped 18k 0.75 along with the IWC markings as shown in the photos on the inside. It has a few age related marks.
The watch has what I suspect is not the original crown unless it has lost its gold plating that changes the time smoothly.
The watch case houses the original International Watch Company signed 17 jewel manual winding movement. It is currently working well and keeping good time. As with all vintage watches it would benefit from regular servicing to maintain accurate time keeping and functionality.
The watch has a new plexi-glass crystal. It is in excellent condition with no scratches or marks.
The watch is hung on a new 18mm brown leather band with a gold coloured buckle.
Please note this is a vintage watch and is in original condition. As with all period pieces it would benefit from a service and regular servicing to keep it running smoothly. Please look at the photos as they form part of the description and ask any questions prior to bidding.

It appears that the centre second hand is missing from the watch. I have not been able to check if the wheel and spindle are in place to allow a hand to be fitted.
