A highly collectable jumbo IWC 18k rose gold vintage dress watch from circa 1961. Powered by the legendary calibre 8531 automatic movement, this vintage IWC dress watch oozes vintage class with its 37mm rose gold case and timeless minimalist dial design. 

IWC decided in the 1950s and 1960s that they would make some of the best watches ever manufactured, and they did just that! Their beautiful movements and casings, made during the 'golden age' of watchmaking, has rarely been surpassed in terms of craftsmanship, technical quality, or sheer beauty. A 'watchmaker's watch' is a term used to describe vintage IWCs due to the fact that watchmakers adore them, both to work on and to own. What better endorsement could you ask for!

Technical & Condition: 

Presented in overall great condition. The dial has taken on a pleasing patina, most evident at the edge of the dial between 2-5 o'clock. The rose gold case remains in good shape. The crown is a later replacement. The movement is clean and in good working order and finally the watch is fitted with a 3rd party leather strap complete with an IWC stamped gold colour buckle.

  • Case size (exc. crown): 37mm
  • Case material: 18k rose gold
  • Movement: Automatic, Cal. 8531
  • Strap/bracelet: Third-party strap with IWC buckle
  • Box and papers: Original IWC service box

IWC Cal. 8531; The ideal vintage gold watch

In the high-end watch market, IWC will always command a lot of respect, and (we believe) prices will continue to grow steadily over the coming years. This is especially true of the rarer jumbo examples such as this. This is a truly special watch and one we know will find a home quickly, especially given our normal competitive pricing. Don't hang around, once it's gone you'd have to pay over £4k for a similar example in London!
