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

Ralph Ehrismann Wrote:It is quite funnyHere we discussed the change from deck watch to a flieger.Probably it was never sold "converted" to Flieger. maybe it was built back to its "original" case. Has someone the serial number of the case when it weas sold in New Zealand ? Regards Ralph

Ralph Ehrismann Wrote:Some days a go I have seen in a strange shop a IWC Deck Watch with center second. (c.52 SC)The reason why I did not buy teh watch was the dscrepance between the case and the Movement/Dial number.Here all three numbers should be indetical.But in war time (or later), the watchmaker where not very careful. Somtimes when adjusting several watches, they just screwed a back cover on the watches.So quit often you find watches with a wrong back number.Here we could try to exchange the covers back, to get right cover.There are "only" approx 200 c.52SC Deck-watches, and many are in known collections.So for the watch I have seen, I'd need the 1'014'374. Against it, I could offer the 1'014'883.But actually it's just a project, I dont have the watch, yet... May be moters have the same problem, we could solve here!
