As for the certificate/extract, I may be wrong, but I think IWC just uses a generic template to issue these certificates for the Mark XIs and that they are not specimen specific. I think they just examine the watch to be genuine and just list the numbers on the certificate without going into detail of they are a BOAC or a RAF or RAAF etc etc..Just my 2 cents anyways...Cheers,Desmond

Thanks, Klaus.T - Swiss - T is only found on a Schaffhausen redial, so is never found on an original or MoD or RAF re-dialled Mark XI.This example looks excellent and I'd be happy to have it in my collection.
