My concern is that few IWC collectors, other than pocket watch lovers can appreciate the input of the very few expert insiders on IWC's history as it is shown here.My joy is that in this thread a few unique men have expressed their knowledge and expertise. This will enable us to unravel those periods of time in the history of IWC, which are still unknown.Therefore I am grateful that experts such as Hans-Georg Aberle, Ralph Ehrismann, Alan Myers and Greg Steer have contributed to this thread.My sincere wish is that they follow-up the IWC Forum and comment whenever appropriate.Kind regards,Adrian,(alwaysiwc).

Watch bows on key wound Swiss watches were generally secured with a screw through the pendant. If there was a pusher to open the lids, did the screw go through a borehole in the pusher?Was this also the case in pocket watches from England too?2. Swiss pocket Watches were hinged opposite the pendant - Not in pocket watches from England.Can this be generalized?ticking regardsHolgerP.S. Thanks to Jimmy for translating-help.
