    What's this vintage IWC watch?

    I just got a vintage IWC watch today, but I don't seem to be able to find anything similar on the internet. Can anyone shred any light on this?

    You should be able to find other examples quite easily using Google images. It's a cal 89 model with "shark-fin" or "ribbon" lugs. There were a number of dial variations.

    Thanks Dan. I tried to look via Google Images, but wasn't able to find any with the same type of dial, so was wondering if anyone here was familiar with this type of dial.

    I see, you specifically wanted to know about the dial. It would have been efficient to make that clear initially.

    Here's one that's similar, though not identical. This particular dial is less common, but yours looks fine, and the alpha hands are correct.

    Thanks for your reply Dan. Would anyone happen to know of a website which lists the dial variations for Cal. 89 watches with shark-fin lugs? My dial must be really uncommon... I can't seem to see anyone else selling it online (with the exception of the link provided above).
