A very unusual timepiece made by International Watch Co back in 1954. What exactly is unusual? First of all - the case. It is not only rare one-piece steel case, but it also screwed (so-called "Bombé") lugs. More than that is has pretty rare Caliber 88 and a very unusual dial layout. Sharp, clean, uncommon, don't miss it!
The watch went through complete service and restoration in October 2016.
