I used to think it was clever to confuse comedy with tragedy. Now I wish I could distinguish them. John le Carré

alwaysiwc Wrote:Dear Heiko,I saw this watch too and I was not interested in it, as I had never heard of it.I thought it was a marriage and I did not recognise the movement as an existing IWC movement. Without concentrating on its very interesting technical features, it has become clear that you have bought a unique pocket watch with an extremely rare movement : cal. 983 ( well known of course is cal. 982).As there is nothing written in the official literature about cal. 983, your find is also important from a historical point of view. I am sure that you will reveal more aspects after your consultation with David Seyffer. It shows once again that it is still possible to find new historical IWC watches of which the existence is unknown to collectors.Congratulations,Adrian,(alwaysiwc).

I am happy to read being not alone. ;)Looking forward to further infos.The engraving/coining of IWC and the C. 983 seems to me a bit bigger than usual.So it might be done by Bergland and not by IWC?And I cannot read clearly the inscription before IWC on the dial even by magnification.Congratulations!Best regards
