    I'm not sure this is IWC. There seems to be an extra symbol of some type on the dial, and obviously the logo and movement don't look like IWC.

    It's a nice watch but what makes you think that it's an IWC? I can see a "C" and a "W" but no "I" in the logo. More like "CW & Co" or "WC & Co". The movement does have the superficial structure of the common IWC pocket watch movements (2/3 plate and separate escapement gear cock) but differs in detail. Unless there is an exact match to an IWC calibre, I wouldn't be so sure.

    the fascia letters are so hard to interpret, I've attached 2 more photos. Thought the watch may have be a very early less doc'd periods
