IWC 18K Rose Gold Caliber 89 Item #2690 SOLD
This very special timepiece is housed is completely original and features a solid 18K Rose Gold measuring *35mm x 41mm* case. The 3-piece case features down-curving, extended lugs and a wide flat bezel. Side note, the wide bezel makes the watch look and wear bigger than its 35mms.
This watch has been carefully worn, and not often based on the case condition. All the edges and angles are sharp and the flat surfaces are just that, FLAT! It looks simply outstanding. The only issues keeping this watch from "perfect" are some marks on the dial's original finish. We took the pictures so you would be able to see it. It does seem much less in person. It's accented with applied gold markers and matching rose gold hands in great condition.
This vintage IWC features one of the most desirable manual wind movements: the high-grade 17-jewel IWC Cal 89. The watch comes fully serviced including a movement overhaul, a new mainspring and correct crystal. We completely disassembled the gold case and very lightly hand polished it to restore its lustre only. After that, we ultrasonically cleaned it - that's all it needed. The watch comes ready to wear on one of our finest genuine crocodile straps, handmade in Italy. An absolutely exquisite vintage IWC.
