Michael Friedberg Wrote:Steamy --I didn't reply since I can't sign in as you on Photobucket, and couldn't see your watch. You need to follow Bill's instructions a bit more precisely and copy the IMG code. Back then, IWC didn't make cases or dials, but outsourced those and assembled the watch with their in-house movement. What you have on the back is the engraving for a German shooting competition in Munich held in 1927. Your watch therefore is a "prize" watch. I reported previously on the forum about my 1905 IWC German shooting competition watch, held in Hannover (an archives search might help) and my IWC pocket watch website has a small section on prize watches.But --I need to see your watch to conclude that it is an IWC. There were prize watches made by other companies too.
