    Help with Vintage IWC

    Hi,
    I have attached a picture of an IWC (poor picture I know). By looking at the hands and dial do any of you possibly know its caliber? It has a smaller, non raised, but imprinted 'IWC' on the dial, then below this the typical 'International Watch Co.' and then 'schaffhausen', and finally on the bottom 'Automatic'. I am told it is frm the 1970s, and my guess is an .854. However, the dial and hands are throwing me off. I can't find one with the imprinted 'IWC', its always a raised 'IWC' or none at all, and then different variations on the time markers on the dial. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

    This is impossible without better pics... sorry.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
