Here is such a great looking vintage IWC automatic watch dating from 1972 that has such a classic design that makes it look as stylish today as when it was made. The dial has the transitional dial from the iconic βInternational Watch Company Schaffhausenβ written in its Italic style font combined with the upper case βIWCβ and has the date window and centre sweep seconds. With a very clean and easy to read dial combined with a watch case that measures 36mm across plus the IWC crown, this watch sits so well and looks great on the wrist. Thanks to its wider and more solid lugs, this gives the watch a larger appearance on the wrist. Inside is the superb IWC automatic 8543B movement. This highly regarded movement was design by Albert Pellaton who was the technical director at IWC, and this automatic movement has an ingenious system that included the ability for the automatic rotor to wind the watch regardless of which direction the rotor was turning. Fitted with a micro-regulator to guarantee accuracy and this among various other features make this one of the most accurate and well regarded watch movements in any watch back then and even today more than 40 years later. This movement is so highly regarded as one of the best ever made, it has become sought after by collectors the world over. This vintage IWC is one that looks so good on the wrist and will always be admired for its elegant and classic style that will always fit in no matter where it is worn.
