    Vintage IWC Automatic: To buy or not to buy.

    Hi,
    I am a newcomer to the forum with this being my first post and, as such, hope I'm not being rude by asking a favour.
    I recently came upon these two cal 8531s in an antique shop and and it was love at first sight. Last year I purchased two vintage 351 Omega bumpers from the same shop and consequently have no doubts about his integrity.
    The asking price for the two watches bought together is approximately USD $2100. I would greatly appreciate any comments to help me decide whether to proceed. Please excuse the poor quality pics. I only have a picture of the movement of the pie pan.
    Cheers!

    Nice watches, but I'm not convinced that the dials are original. Much better images would be required, however, in order to make a confident assessment.

    The pie-pan is a more uncommon and valuable variation, all other factors being equal.

    Thank you for your input. I'll follow up further in regard to the authenticity/originality of the dials.

    Kind regards.
