empressissi™ is pleased to offer this original and sought after IWC Schaffhausen stainless steel dress watch for men with a legendary manual wind movement and timeless design. It is working well, keeping good time and ready to wear or gift!
The watch houses a legendary cal. 403 manual wind movement, running well on 17 jewels with sweep seconds complication. The 400 series of movements replaced the iconic cal. 88/89 during the early 60s. It is cased in a gorgeous dual tone stainless steel case in good condition with mint crystal and good crown.
The dial was restored in the past with the correct pearl tone and a sub tone floral print in 'Victorian' style, very elegant in fine light blue and topped with solid applied markers. This combination makes an interesting contrast. It comes with the original set of hands.
This unique and sought after IWC Schaffhausen gents watch measures 32mm side to side (excluding crown) and 37mm from top lug to bottom lug and is considered midsize. It is therefore more likely to please a lady seeking a hi end vintage wrist watch, with enough presence.
Attached to this watch is a standard length brand new, 18mm wide, quality SP slim genuine leather band in black tone with unsigned anti-allergic buckle in matching tone.
