This and David's buckle/strap make this a GREAT threadI checked the numbers and I have to say: matching numbers!
The watch with movement 591241 and the case 658541 was sold September 21 1914 to Stauffer London.
Most interesting for you: in the sales records there is the note: "contours Borgel avec anses" That means it was a typical Borgel silver wristwatch case.
Yet again, cheers Marrick! I guess its alright an alright watch....Its alright I suppose.
Well, no, to be fair - a stunningly nice watch on a great strap. Yet again - congratulations Marc.
Thanks Mirius, 'Fantastic' is a good description in my opinion.Fantastic and a very nice new service by David :-!
Thanks Adam,This and David's buckle/strap make this a GREAT thread
Very exciting. Fantastic piece
slightly jealous - really fantastic
Thanks Radger,Lovely watch and good attention to detail with Davids period buckle on his period strap.
It deserves wrist time, these old IWC's will go forever and this one looks in super condition.
Cheers Joe, Its certainly a well made movement!Stunning piece, just love older movements they always look solid, nice strap was going to buy a strap from David but its hard to choose which sort to buy, I wanted a grain effect but will be a special order, I like your strap.
Thanks David,Hi Marc,
A beautiful watch, and I'm glad you like the strap.
Kind regards - David
