    Info about 60+ yo IWC

    Hi guys.

    Today i was looking into my father's watch collection and i found one that i got curious about. It's a Golden IWC that was kept in my father's wardrobe for 25 years, and before that in my grandfather's wardrobe for 30 years, and before that in my grandgrandfather wrist for something from 10 to 25 years. So it has 65 to 80 years. I need your guys help to find out more about the watch since it has no detailed incriptions in it. In the front it says "international watch schaffhausen" and in the back is my father's name. The movement is Manual. The original band was solid gold. And i don't think i will be able to open the back, the watch isn't mine :/

    Hope u guys can give me some info about it.

    Thanks! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Looks like a dress watch from the late '40s or early 50s. Probably an early redial, as well.

    If you have a watchmaker open the case, the serial number and caliber will be revealed, and a fairly precise dating will be possible.
