Extremely rare and collectible timepiece - International Watch Co "Hermet". This type of case was produced by IWC in quite limited amounts and featured 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 example is the biggest one measuring 37.5 mm without a crown. 

This particular watch is notable for an extremely rare dial - original and untouched creamy white dial with ArtDeco-ish numerals accompanied by a charming set of blue steel hands.

Professionally serviced in June 2018. Technical warranty: 1 year.
