1940’s International Watch Co. (Schaffhausen, Swiss) Steel Case Gents Dress Watch – 17j IWC Cal. 60
1 in stock
A nicely preserved and classic gents dress watch by IWC (Swiss), this exquisite watch, has been professionally serviced by Localtime and is ready to wear or join your collection. During service, the mainspring and plexi glass were changed.
The solid steel case (31mm or 32.50mm counting the crown at 3h) measures 37.50mm L2L, has a classy thickness of 9.15mm and has been professionally cleaned but not polished, to maintain its original integrity. It is in a lovely vintage condition and is a very classy looker on the wrist. The white dial and black markers and rumerals and dark blue hands are simple and combine wonderfully for a minimal and classy look. It is carrying a manual-wind IWC Cal. 60 with 17j. Movement number 1062446 places the production of this watch in the first half of the 1940’s, possibly in 1943-1945. It is wearing a lovely black handmade genuine lizard leather strap (you can see more examples from this line of lovely straps in the last photo and they are also listed separately in the store, just search for ‘genuine lizard’).
As with all the watches we handle in-house, the listed buy-it-now price includes a 6-month written warranty from the time of purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information you might need.
Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I mention what has been changed (if anything) on the watch and I include a written warranty with my listed price.
Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches (leather, canvas, suede, rubber) are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
