My Collection
IWC Aquatimer - Released in 1969 as IWC's first dive watch, this two crown (one moves the bezel) stainless steel watch is water resistant to 200 meters. Inside it houses the mighty 8541B, 25 jeweled Pellaton movement. The IWC archives list this as model 1812. Notice the paddle-necked seconds hand. SOLD
IWC Gadebusch - Based on the Mark XV pilot's watch, this white dialed version is a limited edition of 50, issued in 2000 to commemorate Juwelier Gadebusch's 150th anniversary. The difference from the Mark XV is the applied silver hour markers, the blued seconds hand and the box around the date window. SOLD
IWC Yacht Club - IWC's sporty line was introduced in the late 60s as model 811, featuring shock resistance and a unique winder sealing system. This stainless steel watch, which at one time was IWC's best selling watch, and was quite popular in the Middle East. In fact, the archives list this one as being originally sold in Bhagdad. This YC contains the mighty 8541B Pellaton movement that is getting more and more recognition as a horological classic. SOLD
IWC Ceramic Flieger - Model 3705 was introduced in the 1993 catalog as an example of IWC thinking outside the box and attempting to create an even stronger material for watch cases. The black case is made of zirconium oxide and is impervious to cuts, dents and scratches. Production was halted in 1997, after IWC realized it was just too expensive to produce. A ceramic DaVinci was also produced and like the "Black" Flieger it is extremely rare.
