The present watch is fitted with IWC’s well-respected caliber 89, which was created to be a workhorse movement with simplicity, reliability, and robust performance. IWC started using this movement in the late 1940s with the IWC Mark XI models commissioned by the British Ministry of Defense, and continued using the movement well into the 1970s also for more sophisticated time-only creations.

This IWC dress watch is a well-balanced timepiece with great style thanks to the gold and black colour combination. With a unique charm, added by lovely proportions and flared lugs, the applied baton indexes and the dauphine hands in rose gold offer and elegant contrast to the dial. Preserved in excellent condition, this model is a handsome and wonderfully executed creation by IWC.
