Ardoise Wrote:Welcome to the forum.The "fish icon" on the crown was used by IWC to denote water resistance in an IWC timepiece. It was used across several lines, if not all of them. In my collection, I have several watches with "fish icons" such as Portuguese Chronograph, Portuguese Perpetual Calendar, Classic Pilot's Double Chronograph, Aquatimer, and GST Perpetual Calendar in. Steel on Steel bracelet. IWC stopped using the "fish icon" in the mid 2000s.Does your friend's IWC Look like this?The GST Perpetual Calendar is a great, complicated, durable sports watch. It has a 31 jewel, automatic movement with IWC perpetual module with a 4-digit year display, moon phase and accounts for leap year. Also, it has a chronograph.

It has the fish logo on the winder. I took it to an iwc shop and they could not identify the year or any details about it.I am interested in knowing about this watch.
