8541 Wrote:Great Team Work folks,Based on Roberto's input as regards the 2nd seal on the case back (first seal is the IWC logo) being that of Huguenin Frères, I shared that info today with Schaffhausen.In their usual great approach to supporting the IWC community out here and in particular this forum" they responded by return. The response I got back was "In fact, Huguenin Frères was the case supplier, who produced the cases for ref. 802."Let's remember that in those days (and for most brands still today - other than IWC) the watch companies generally outsourced the manufacturing of their cases. So no surprise there -but nice to see that even in those days IWC turned to the top reputable suppliers for their watch components. Clearly, then as now QUALITY was a major focus area for IWC.So, still no answer as to why no serial number on this case back - but any day in which I (we) learn and/or recall some of IWC history, is a good day in my book.Best regardsMark
