WWII International Watch Co Cal 83 Watch.
A very clean IWC watch that was made in 1943 during WWII. The watch is used so it is to be expected that there is wear and marks on the watch. The watch houses the very famous C83 manual wind movement that was used in the dirty dozen watches. Since the watch was made during the war period it seems that they rushed the manufacturing of the case and the hole for the crown is ever so slightly off center. This means the dial is slightly off axis. All 3 of the dial feet are still intact. The crown appears to be original for the watch. The case back has slight dents. Due to the size of the watch wearing rather small on the wrist, we put on a leather backing giving it a larger appearance on the wrist and military look. The watch has on a used 16mm Hirsch strap. This is a very clean and sharp watch that will fit really well in any collectors collection.
The dial is silver in color and has aged with a patina from the Radium. The hour markers are Arabic numerals painted on with a luminous compound. The Hour, Minute and Seconds hands are all blued with the Hour and Minute hand having luminous compound. The text on the dial is printed in black. The seconds are a subdial at the 6 o’clock position.
