    Help me identify this IWC

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. I just received this IWC from my father who received it from his father so I'm guessing it's old. Can anyone tell me how old is this watch and what movement and model is it? Any info would be helpful.
    Thank you!

    Welcome and thanks for posting. The serial number would date the watch to 1960. It's a high quality dress watch in a gold case so it's well worth restoration. You should send it to a good watchmaker for cleaning and service.

    If you are willing to part with 50 swiss francs (approx £25) email all the info to IWC and they will send you "an extract from the archives"-this will tell you if the movement and case are the original matched pair, the date is was purchased and from which City

    Looks like an example of the famous Cal. 89:
