i was very lucky when i came into posession of a beautyful watch with a history by a not so lucky incident...
well, not that i want to sell it, but i could need some ideas concerning an estimated value of my IWC :-)
last time, i had this watch in my hands was as a kid and i was told to be careful with it.
3 Days ago it came to me by a trade for another piece of jewellery and me being a guy not wearing a watch regulary or rather never wearing a watch for some years now, i put it on and i do not want to take it off anymore...
So here is what I found out:
It can be found in the 1974 catalogue
Its the lower left one, 18kt "whitegold" modell 9304
I would be thankful for some ideas on the "market value" just to get a better idea of the trade that i made or rather the trade that was made with me and i accepted without thinking ( was kind of an emotional decision ).
Thank you in advance and there will be no harm done by estimations.
I am a lucky guy and this is not going to change ;-)

Welcome to the IWC Forum. Your research and the results from it, give me the impression that you know the world of IWC vintage watches perfectly. That said, brings me to your question. It is a rule at this forum not to discuss prices for IWC watches. Nevertheless for vintage models sometimes a price is mentioned as these watches are rare and seldomly offered for sale. Most vintage IWC collectors do know the current price for icon vintage watches such as the Ingenieurs and Portugiesers, just to mention a few. In your case the white gold wrist watch is not an eagerly sought after IWC watch. In my opinion it is not possible to link this watch to a price that is considered the market price. As its case is made of white gold, many people would pay the gold price. IWC collectors might pay more.
For me as an IWC collector, such watch is worth 1000 $. But the "emotional" value might be much higher is it is a family piece or if a collector is trying to find this very specific watch. This is, I repeat , a personal opinion.
