IWC 18K Gold Hooded Lug Automatic C-1960's Item #2610 SOLD
A sophisticated look on this handsome IWC from the 1960’s in a very heavy SOLID 18K GOLD hooded lug case (nearly an ounce of gold in the case). The 18K gold case is really big for the period, measuring 35mm across at its narrowest point without the crown, and 40mm from lug tip to lug tip. What's really exceptional is that weight and the style of the case really make this look and feel like a bigger watch on your wrist. It's fully stamped 18K gold both on the case and inside the caseback. A gold IWC fish crown tops it all off.
The silver/champagne color dial still has its original finish with just the right amount of aging. It’s accented with applied gold bar capped with black accents at their centers. Matching black/luminous/gold hands top it all off. All are original & look great!
Under the dial is a signed, Swiss made Caliber 8541 automatic winding movement with 17 jewels and shockproofing and adjusted to 5 positions. It also features a non-quickset date at 3 o’clock. The watch has been serviced and is keeping very good time. It comes on an Italian handmade vintage leather strap which completes the look.
