This is a beautiful example of vintage 70s watch. The IWC Ref 3073 comes with a super cool ellipse style case in good condition. The bracelet is original made by IWC. The watch is allover in beautiful vintage condition. The case and the bracelet have light signs of use. It offers a fairly wide-set bezel that gives this watch a nice presence.

It convinces with perfect proportions, timeless styling and great reference to the 1970s.

 

The International Watch Company has been founded by Ariosto Jones, an American watchmaker and engineer in 1868. In 1901 IWC had already 190 employees. From day one IWC built high quality watches. The most iconic watch by IWC is the Grande Complication. It contains 659 mechanic pieces, among them 71 rubies. It has 17 functions and 12 patents, a perpetual calendar for the next 500 years and the perpetual moon-phase display. Other collectable watches are the IWC Portuguese, IWC Da Vinci, IWC Pilot's Watches, IWC Portofino, IWC Aquatimer and IWC Ingenieur. After two bankruptcies, IWC came back on the road of success.
