Throwing this out there to see if there are any resources that can help me
understand a little more about my watch. I understand that IWC offers the
ability to receive a COA during service and that can provide a "birth date"
for your piece-are there any other resources that can be used to derive
pedigree information about my watch? Specifically I am curious about the year
it was made as well as where it was originally retailed. I am American, and
my GST has an italian day wheel, obviously my guess is that this was retailed
in Italy, but I like hunting for some history!
My watch was sent to service at IWC recently and I did indicate that I wanted
a COA, unfortunately it was sent to the US facility in Texas which cannot
provide a COA. Its already estimated to hit the max lead time of 12 weeks and
I am too impatient to have it travel to Europe afterward.
