We are working with a UK based collector who has asked us to market a selection of his watches. As part of the offer each watch has had a full service and refurbishment by the UK’s leading watchmaker, Steven Hale Watch Restoration. Each watch will come with a 2 year guarantee from Steve Hale and a lifetime guarantee on the authenticity by Sonning Vintage Watches.
IWC are one of the most respected watchmakers in the World. Founded in 1868, it has become a Premier League brand for both the super quality movements and classic design. This 1955 IWC dress watch sums up the brand. The beautiful solid 18ct rose gold case is in near faultless condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. We believe the original ivory/cream dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standards and is classically elegant. The raised rose gold hour batons with numbers at the quarters and dark rose gold plated hands create a stunning look. With the domed lens it’s a difficult watch to capture and the first picture is the clearest representation – I have done a What’s App wrist video. The original IWC signed manual wind movement is in excellent condition and has just been serviced by SHWR. To complete this beautiful piece we’ve put the watch on a new, dark brown Hirsch leather strap with yellow gold plated Hirsch buckle.
Watches of this quality and in this condition are extremely rare to find. I’ve struggled to capture the true beauty of this piece so I’ve done a wrist video – please advise your What’s App number if you’d like to see it.
