Discontinued Men's Model
Yacht Club was founded in 1967. As the name suggests, this is a high-end sports watch made for yachters that is shock-resistant and water-resistant. This is a genuine Oldinter that holds an important position in the history of branding by various manufacturers, and its curves, which exude a sense of sculptural beauty, were created by the master of watch design, Charles Gérald Genta, and offer a glimpse into his mind.
This time, we will introduce a very rare IWC model, the Ref. R811A. Of particular note is the C-line case made of dignified white gold and the 42 diamond indexes that shine brilliantly when they reflect light, adding a sparkle to the dial. It is believed that members of the yacht club had the financial means to purchase watches, and presumably placed orders with IWC because they wanted something different from others; these are ultimate masterpieces that stand out from ordinary models. In addition to the rare brand name written in cursive, this model also retains the fish crown, another feature unique to Old Inter.
The movement is equipped with automatic caliber 8541. This is the final model of the 85 series "Peraton Automatic", which adds a date function to the famous caliber 854. It is also a historic invention, a movement that is easy to use and highly practical, allowing the date to be fast-forwarded by switching between 23:45 and 24:00.
The bracelet is a 7-link stainless steel wrap bracelet made by Gay Freres, a company that supplies bracelets to many manufacturers. This watch is packed with valuable details, including a big IWC logo on the buckle and the company's deer mark engraved on the leaf spring. As the case and metal do not match, it is believed that the bracelet was replaced with a stainless steel one in later years. This is a recommended watch for those who want a graceful and elegant look on their wrist. This is a wonderful model that has a distinctive jewelry feel and a unique charm that cannot be imitated.
