The International Watch Company or IWC produce high-quality, luxury watches. While perhaps not as well known as brands like Rolex and Omega, IWC are top quality timepieces and we see many in our workshop – from vintage models passed down as family heirlooms, through to daily wear watches including models like the Portugieser and Portofino.
This IWC watch is one we’ve sourced to go in our collection of pre-owned watches. We have an extensive range of pre-owned watches for sale – including brands like Tag Heuer, Omega and Rolex. You can see the range on our website.
To prepare the watch for sale it is given a thorough clean and service. During a service the watch is completely taken apart, cleaned, reassembled, oiled, adjusted and tested. Also the case is given a light polish as well as an ultrasonic clean. This way you can be confident the timepiece you’re purchasing from us is in excellent working order.
In terms of maintenance for mechanical watches like this, We recommend watches are serviced every 4-5 years. This is to ensure optimal performance of the movement (as the oils and greases needed to keep the movement running properly need to be kept fresh) and to allow the movement to be checked for signs of wear and tear.
Once the service and work to the case are complete, we reassemble the watch. From this point we check the timekeeping before keeping the watch on test to ensure it performs within our acceptable tolerances for a vintage timepiece.
We are sure you’ll agree, it’s a fantastic looking watch and a great addition to our pre-owned range!
