1940 IWC Schaffhausen Cal.61 "Hermet" Gilt Dial

Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Extremely rare and collectible timepiece - International Watch Co "Hermet". This type of case was produced by IWC in quite limited amounts and featured a special type of snap-on case back providing additional humidity- and dust-proof capabilities, that is why it was called "Hermet" derived from "Hermetique". Hermet cases existed in few sizes and this particular example is the mid-sized one measuring 35.5 mm without a crown. 

This particular watch is notable for an extremely rare, possibly unique dial - original black galvanic gilt with Arabic numerals. 

Technical warranty: 1 year.
