FS: IWC IW544501 Vintage Collection Portuguese HandWound Service

For sale is a near mint condition 44mm stainless steel IWC Vintage Collection Portuguese Hand-wound. The IW544501 was originally purchased in 2012 and is fresh from factory service with a two-year warranty on the work performed. The IWC is accompanied by its original boxes and papers, and records from the recent factory service. While at factory service the IWC received a complete movement disassembly and overhaul, a polishing of the case, and a new sapphire crystal. The Portuguese features a polished steel case, which is accented by a fixed smooth steel bezel. The IWC is mounted on an OEM glossy back alligator strap, which is secured by an OEM brushed steel deployant buckle. The OEM strap contains some creasing but has a good amount of use left. The IWC features a black dial with applied polished stick and Arabic numeral hour markers, polished steel hands, and a seconds register sub dial at 6 o’clock. The IW544501 uses a hand wound movement, which is proudly displayed through a skeleton exhibition caseback. The case has stood the test of time well and is crisp after receiving a factory refinish. The OEM strap does contain some light creasing, from careful wear before the service, but has a good amount of use lift left.

Shall deliver with the remainder of the factory service warranty for $5,650 plus state tax where applicable.
