Hi guys,
I'm normally not one to create a post every time I get a new watch, but I'm so delighted with the latest one I had to share it. The original owner wore it daily for over 40 years and when he passed away his niece inherited the watch, and I was lucky enough to purchase it from her a couple of weeks ago. It was definitely an added bonus to still have the original guarantee booklet, and I find the letter to the owner from the then president of IWC very interesting.

*drools* that watch is a splendid vintage one, and the letter is just the icing to a great cake!

Lovely watch from my favourite decade. I note that the IWC president assumed that he would wear it " during all the years to come". Folk usually owned only one watch then.

Hmmm...seems your watch may be lacking in provenance. I don't see any DNA documentation of the IWC employees who built the watch. ;)

Awesome acquisition, congrats!
