clepsydra Wrote:The artwork in the dial is excellent and I believe it is IWC original.If the dial is attracted by a magnet and loses its magnetization soon after the magnetizing source is removed, then the dial is most likely authentic. Although counterfeiters are getting more sophisticated, I don’t think they would go through the trouble, or had the knowledge, to use soft iron. It would not be cost effective.If the dial retains magnetization after the magnetizing source has been removed for a while, then it is probably made of steel, in which case the dial is counterfeit.
