1969 IWC Vintage Mens Watch, Cal. 8541 Automatic, Black Dial with Date - Stainless Steel

9.5 / 9.6 out of 10 - 1 Year Warranty

Today's offering showcases this superior automatic IWC with a classic retro look.

Powering the watch is a cal. 8541 movement, part of the caliber 85 family of movements designed by Albert Pellaton and that feature his renowned winding system. This mechanism's automatic winding system is a technical masterpiece, earning it high praise - Gisbert Brunner and Christian Pfeiffer-Belli in their work, Wristwatches Armbanduhren Montres-bracelets, proclaimed it "one of the best automatic movements ever built in Switzerland."

The company built this watch in 1969, at the same they were building their famous Ingenieur line which also had watches that utilized the caliber 8541.

The watch is in gorgeous restored condition and presents as mint on the wrist.

It has been freshly overhauled - the winding is perfectly smooth - and we have installed a new crocodile strap for the finishing touch.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

An almost five decade old IWC that has been restored to look nearly as good as new!
