HSTE Wrote:Hi there, I can add a bit here as I did some inventory (about 30 case numbers of 1832) over time on this topic:Case# 2 202 965 is the lowest number I have spotted so far (April 9, 1977)Case# 2 294 642 is the highest number I have spooted so far (June 28, 1983)Case# 2 203 30x (which may be yours) is from November 1976Case# 2 203 25x is one of my 1832, from December 2, 1983Case# 2 223 23x is my other 1832, from April 30, 1979All dates mentioned above are either from IWC Extract of Archives or from IWC Certificates of Authenticity.The funny thing is that - as with other ref - there is not the strict logic of "lower number = older" and "higher number = newer", the best example being the two Jumbos that I own. Case 2 203 043 is the oldest that I spotted so far (November 10, 1976)Case 2 294 577 is the newest that I spotted so far (xx.yy.1984)There is also no logic between case number and movement number; examples (again all data from IWC Extract of Archives): Case 2 203 192 has movement 1 962 774Case 2 203 084 has movement 2 273 637Anyway - in my view one of the nicest designs in history, complementing wonderfully my other Genta design watches (AP RO A-81x and PP Nautlius 3700).Best regards
