    IWC 18-carat Gold Vintage Calibre 89 Watch

    A few weeks ago, I flew to Melbourne to pick up my new Omega Railmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Watch.

    I ended up purchasing this IWC.

    Apparently, the movement (a Calibre 89) is a very well-renowned movement. I was not aware until the Shop Owner kept telling me about it.

    Wow neat. Is that the Ref 604?

    Whats the diameter size on that guy? Other than the obvious differences how do you like it in comparison to your Montblanc Ultra slim.

    I think that it is Reference 604.

    Based on my Googling, it looks most like the 604.

    According to the Shop that I purchased it from, it's a 36mm.

    I love that it is real Gold, and dresses up really nicely.

    I wear this and my MontBlanc around the same amount of time.

    This Watch just seems to wrap around my tiny wrist better, probably due to the design of the lugs.

    Congratulations. It is a very good looking gold watch. I like International Watch Co written on the plain dial like this. Cal 89 too is a robust movement. Wear it in good health.

    Very good choice , the calibre 89 is one of the best IWC calibers ever made

    Very nice, my kind of watch. I suspect that the salesman knows you well and had this in mind for you. I like how the case is recessed at the crown position. It is impossible to tell from the photos but I presume that this is a thin watch which is what I prefer.

    I have a similar one, apparently from 1948. Cal first came out in 1946. Mine is 36mm also.

    Very observant of you, regarding how the case is recessed where the crown is.

    This is a thin Watch, indeed.

    Don’t know how thin it is, but if I were to hatch a guess, I would say between 8mm and 9mm, and that would include the domed acrylic crystal.
