International Watch Co. Ref. 1410 gold vintage wristwatch, hallmarked 1968
A slim 18ct yellow gold manually wound wristwatch
A super smart dress watch, this IWC model has a slim profile and the lugs are minimised to allow the classic circular shape of the case to dominate. To achieve this, the lugs are designed to sit beneath the base of the bezel and the extremity of the bezel reaches 1mm beyond the length of the lugs at either end of the case, together with a recess to the underside of the case, this ensures that the ends of the leather strap are concealed beneath the edge of the case – in other words, there is no gapping between strap and watch case.
The silvered dial is in excellent original condition with a bright satin sheen and the case retains clean definition to its angles and edges.
