8531 on nearly NOS IWC bracelet and gorgeous original silver pie pan dial with date. As a general rule vintage IWC is massively undervalued; especially unnamed cal. The Ingenieur was one the first named models and the first watch directed at engineers who worked in heavy magnetic fields.
Always a luxury watch with extreme quality of components and manufacturing it was also very much a tool watch. The early 666 models have had a cult like status for nearly 40 years; long understood as a very good thing and a collectible long before such a thought was given to many other very collectible watches. This particular example is wonderful with an excellent case, spectacular bracelet and gorgeous original silver pie pan dial. One would be hard pressed to find a better 666AD. Ref #: 666AD serial 149289.
Diameter: 36 mm w/out crown, 38 mm w/crown, 44 mm lug to lug. Lug Width: 18 mm at the lugs tapering to 16 mm (will take a 18 mm bracelet). Movement: IWC Caiber 8531 automatic. Strap/Bracelet: IWC nearly NOS steel bracelet fully linked to fit up to an 8 wrist.
Case: STAINLESS STEEL with fixed domed bezel, IWC fish crown, brushed case sides, serial number at 6 o'clock, screwdown threaded caseback, inner iron movement cover. Dial: SILVER with applied bullet markers and dauphine hands, tritium plots, date at 3 o'clock, light marks on the dial but probably the best pie pan dial around. Condition: 85% (8.5 of 10): excellent original unpolished vintage condition, working very well.We are quick to respond, agreeable, and easy.
