Mark Fleminger Wrote:The only advice I can give when buying vintage is...Preparation is KEY. Know the Company, in this case IWC.. Know what the Company made and when.. Know the features of particular models.. Study the scripts used for INTERNATIONAL WATCH COMPANY, SCHAFFHASEN. It has changed over time and varies from model to model. . Narrow down the list of wants to particular models and research these models to the point that you know dial, lug, case, hand and crown variations.. Now you are ready to shop and when you find something, a good evaluation of these features will give you the confidence to pull the trigger.Forearmed is forewarned.With the correct information Vintage collecting is fun!
MikeAye, Mateys! Me thinks it's time!
