I'm looking to buy my first vintage IWC watch, and have an eye out for this Automatic cal. 853 from 1958.
What do you think? Does the dial look refinished? (The wear around the edges leads me to think no.) Does the movement look alright? The opened case is quite dirty around edges. Should that be a concern? It does not have the fish logo crown, but from what I can tell, this model did not come with a logo crown. It does however come with an IWC steel bracelet. Could this be original for the watch or is it a later addition?
Any advice or thoughts appreciated.
