Need help Identifying this IWC Schaffhausen!

Recommended Posts

 

Hello,

we have acquired a vintage IWC from our grandparents and would learn more about it.

This watch did come with information on the movement inside that may be helpful. A back cover is missing.

There is a JAPANESE MIYOTA 1L32 movement inside.

If you could please help us shortly with a name, possible age, value, we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your help.

King regards,

Thank you

... it could not be a fake. This is from our grandparents.

They told us they bought it in Davos / Switzerland at CHRIST Uhren & Schmuck.

Why you think it is fake exactly?

P.S. There is a

fish engraving

on the side wheel

Sadly they are gone. We do not know what is the value of this item.

We could not find not any related papers.

Maybe it makes sense to go to a qualified IWC concessionaire.

If you could please help us shortly with a model name, possible age, we would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you very much,

smkkkk

The only thing so far showing up with IWC+Miyota are replicas/fakes.

What baffles me, aside from the watch, is the part of the story saying they bought it in CHRIST Uhren & Schmuck. Do you know the timeframe of that trip?

You should send a picture to them asking to authenticate.

If I were a poker player, I'd say it was not bought there, with all due respect.

Dear sir do not mind if some comments may not be very pleasant regarding your watch...it's just that a miyota moment quartz IWC is something I have never heard of and may be most people have not so do not mind if we are unable to appreciate your watch well....it has great sentimental value to you and you should enjoy that as a good memory...I hope some one more knowledgeable than me can educate all of us

Great forum,

thank you very much for your help and support,

We keep you up-to-date with this.

The purchasing timeframe is not available.

We will visit an

qualified IWC concessionaire.

We have another identifying request .

Thank you for your help.

Cheers,

Even if the case, dial, hands, crown, strap, and buckle are all original, the movement certainly is not.

IWC has made quartz watches, but it makes zero sense that they would use a plastic frame to hold a Japanese quartz movement. The dial says Swiss, but the movement is Japanese? It doesn't really work like that.

Can't hurt to take it to IWC directly, but I don't think this is going to end well. Maybe it could have been a decent fake, but that looks terrible from any angle. It looks like a very poorly made fake.

I can say with 99.9% certainty that the movement doesn't belong in that watch and based on that, the entire thing is fake.
