Michael Friedberg Wrote:Your watch is a "marriage" --that is, someone took an old IWC pocket watch and converted it with a new case (or part of a new case) to a wristwatch. The case is not 100% authentic, nor of course is the dial. IWC never produced a watch like this so it really doesn't have a model name or number.The movement is a Calibre 52 pocket watch movement, and I'd guess it was made between 1900 and 1910.Since your link didn't work easily, others can see the watch atclick hereand the movement atclick here

Greg Chalk Wrote:We do seem to be getting a lot of these offerings to comment on. I am amazed that the watch industry is not on to these Internet markets to get them withdrawn as the music industry is able to get bootlegs removed. The bootlegs are unauthorised releases rather than clones of authorised releases. These so called marriages are a real ruination of old watches with all their historical history and what may be an important piece gets broken up possibly purely for it's case value.
