IWC 308, from 1942, 38mm, spectacular dial. Certificate IWC

 

This IWC reference 308 which was sold on April 7th 1942 to Weinstabel in Prague comes with a very unusual large case of 38mm for that time period. It retains very strong proportions and the caseback still snaps very strong to the case. The IWC 308's are rarely seen especially in great condition as the present example. Not only that it comes with a superbly preserved case, but it has as well an extraordinary dial that turned from black to a beautiful chocolate color over its more then 7 decades lifetime, which certainly adds that extra to this beautiful timepiece. And as stated by the curator of the museum: "It is a very interesting dial; I never saw it before." On the photos of the dial, one can clearly see that it has aged naturally and it has the correct Singer stamp with the number. The more it is accompanied by the Certificate of IWC confirming the originality of this spectacular timepiece.

This IWC 308 is certainly a great addition for every distinguished gentlemen collector, as it has all attributes a true vintage watch should have, perfect size of 38mm, case in superb condition and then that extraordinary dial.
