I think you agree that every manufacture looked to what was developped by Japy, Glashütte, Waltham, Elgin and others. It was the time to decide in which the direction a watch company had to go, to ensure survival. And it is logical to assume that copying promising watches might improve selling.However, what is very special are the detailed developments inside IWC as you show them to us. Your information is not provided in the classic books written by Meis and Toelke and King. Do you know whether cal. 62 ever was sold? I believe 300 Lépine watches and 300 Savonette (hunters ) were made in 1891,Kind regards,Adrian,(alwaysiwc).
