Saltuarius Wrote:Hi Giovanni,Here is a picture of the dial side. Re the serial number you are right, What I thought to be just a dirty mark is actually a fifth number, so the serial number is 16914 not 1691 as I had originally thought. I had discounted a 5 digit number because according to IWC records that would make it a Pallweber from 1886.Michael - as Giovanni pointed out, it is a calibre 39.Thank you for the picture of your lovely complete calibre 39 Giovanni.Alan (Myers)

Saltuarius Wrote:Hi Giovanni,The plot thickens. It looks like in the middle of a big run of Pallweber production they decided to make a few analogue watches using the calibre 42 as a basis.Interesting that they made them in nickel/silver.One cannot strictly call it a calibre 42 because that is a Pallweber. My movement bears the same relationship to the calibre 42 as the calibre 39 does to the calibre 40.Alan
