Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original IWC box and IWC paperwork. The watch comes paired on an original IWC strap with the original IWC signed buckle. The watch is from November 2011 and is in unworn condition as you can see from the photos, the watch still features its sticker on the case back. The watch has sat in the box unworn since purchased new, only signs of wear are to the strap where the watch has been in the box. The watch has no service history but is giving a fantastic reading on the timegrapher and is keeping great time, it will come with KibbleWatches 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
IWC produce some cracking watches, this limited edition of 1000 is certainly one of them! Beautiful design, fit and feel on the wrist, whilst at 42.5mm it is a tad bigger than I would personally like, it is not obtrusive of the wrist at all. The vibrant blue dial is difficult to capture, but when you get it, it pops!
