Ok, so I was reading/drooling through the IWC catalog, and I was reading about their vintage/specialty watches, and came across their pocket watches. Then it dawned on me, "Hey, didn't my grandmother have some type of pocket watch that she gave me a LONG time ago? Didn't I stuff it in a box somewhere? Do I still have that? I'm pretty darn sure I still have it..."
So I went digging through the closet, and eureka! I'd totally forgotten about this. I don't remember really being that interested back then, but now that I'm getting back "into" it, it was suddenly like finding a hidden treasure.
Ok, so it's not the vintage heir loom worth millions of dollars. Just some cheapo made in Hong Kong. Geneva. Probably not even worth a Lincoln. But I thought I'd snap some pictures of this beauty. Thing has to be at least 30 years old.
Wondering if any of you gurus out there could identify the movement inside? If you look really hard, you'll see a part stuck to the backside of the sticker. I have no idea what that is, but all I know is the dang thing still works (intermittently).
Can't decide whether I like the shallow DOF shot or the other:
Any guesses? Also, notice the broken part behind the sticker:
