alwaysiwc Wrote:...I had the luck that Rolf Birkenkämper wrote me today about the thread of "Schützenuhren" on the Forum. Rolf Birkenkämper can be considered as one of the most important IWC collectors of P.W.'s in the world. Together with the late Friedrich Wagener, Hans-Georg Aberle, Thomas Koenig and Ralph Ehrismann, he can be considered as an IWC expert on the early watches.Rolf has sent to me a picture of the Frauenfeld Schützenuhr original box.The Frauenfeld Uhr was the first Schützenuhr made by IWC in 1890.There are no pictures of this box in the reference literature. I hear you say : no big deal and yes, it is not the most important image of the world. But it is unique and you will never see one again!Thank you Rolf.Kind regards,Adrian,(alwaysiwc).
