on offer is an all original and very well preserved 1945 calibre 83 IWC INCA.
Case, at 33,5mm exluding the crown (35mm w/crown), is excellent, for a 75 years old timepiece. Seems unpolished, without hits, marks or corrosion anywhere, just very light surface scratches. Chamfering on the lugs still vivid!
Really stunning original dial has minimum patina, with that lovely sunburst big seconds subdial at 6. Arabic numerals with original lume material still in place that has turned into this creamy hue from age.
Original blue hour, minutes and subdial seconds hands. Original matching creamy lume material in both hands, but the minutes hand missing a piece, which I chose to leave as is, to keep the watch true and completely original.
Crystal is new and replaced in the service. Replaced crystal comes with the watch.
Snap case back is excellent as well, with unnoticeable surface scratches from handling and wearing the watch.
Cal. 83 just serviced (June 2020) by Christian (watchguy) and as expected feels fresh as new.
Case serial 1109235 and movement (with correct INCA inscription) serial 1084119 indicate the year of production to be 1945.
The watch comes with a JP Meniccuci exotic leather strap and it will be dispatched inside a two pocket, Abitspoilt leather roll.
One year warranty is also provided with the purchase, extending the warranty provided by its service.
Price is 3100€ shipped. Payment by bank transfer, or Paypal (+5% fees), or by credit card through our site.
Shipping by UPS Express worldwide, insured.
For additional photos or any exra information, don't hesitate to contact me, I will gladly help.
Thank you Jeff and CT!!
