IWC 18K Gold Ref. #1410 Caliber 402 C-1960’s
Here we have a 18K gold IWC ref. #1410 powered by an in-house IWC caliber 402. It features manual winding and 17 jewels. This watch was made for the Beyer watch store which is the oldest watch shop in Switzerland. The refinished dial is double signed IWC and Beyer.
The solid 18K gold case measures 34 mm across without the crown, and 40.2 mm from lug to lug. It’s in beautiful shape – clear that it’s been very carefully worn and well cared-for over the years! The case features drop-down lugs and is in wonderful condition. The white dial looks great with its contrasting black Roman numerals. It has been refinished and the results look great. The original hands are gold and black. It’s a great overall look.
We have just finished a complete service on this timepiece. During which we lightly refinished the case and installed a new crystal. The movement was completely disassembled, cleaned, a new mainspring was installed and then properly lubricated during reassembly. From there we regulated the watch and it is keeping very good time. We matched the watch with a padded black Crocodile strap.
