cellar Wrote:....The movement serial number will allow the year of production of the movement to be determined using the Date Your IWC programThe watch back needs to be removed to get this number, and if you do not know how to do it please take it to a watchmaker (you don't want to scratch the case doing it yourself) and get him to read both the case and the movement number. The program above will give the production date of the movement and a date range for the case production.IWC charge a small fee (I think it is 60 Swiss Francs) to provide an extract from the archives. This will also show the retailer IWC sold the watch to and the date. Details can be found here (How can I order an extract from the records and how do I know whether an IWC watch is genuine? Again you will need the movement and case number.I hope this helps.Cheers from the cellar

This one was used, and when I got it from my grand mother, it was not working. If wound, it will run for a little bit then stop. My other cousin got a new in box IWC, but not sure as to the type as I have yet to see it. I plan on taking it to the closest IWC retailer to have them service it for me, andreplace the band.I've been looking at the alligator straps, I like the look of them. The case has a nice pink hue to it depending on the light. This was one of the few things my grandfather bought for himself new. He never really spend any of his money. I plan on keeping it in the family and passing it down.
