Yes, we showcase many great estate and vintage watches on our website. Our ever-changing selection keeps our watch collecting clients coming back. We never grow tired of the magnificent watches that we temporarily foster until they find their forever homes. If an estate Rolex, Omega, or Cartier just seems a little too pedestrian and you desire something more exotic, how about an IWC Schaffhausen? Not only is it a fun name to say, but it is also one of the true great manufacturers. They are much more than just a well-marketed brand. From their 1868 inception in Schaffhausen Switzerland by American watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones, they developed an international reputation for manufacturing watches of the highest quality. Our newest estate watch is this titanium AquaTimer with an internal one-way rotating bezel. This feature was last seen in the original ICW AquaTimers from the 1960s and we’re happy to see its return. The slick system allows for timing events by setting the bezel with the 4:00 o’clock crown. There is no external ratchet system to get dirty and stiff and gives the watch an interesting slightly dressier look than a hardcore sports model. Make no mistake this is still a serious diver tool, with a water-resistant rating of 2000 meters! This 42 watch is in hardly worn condition and remains in completely original condition without ever being refinished. Despite its larger size the titanium case and bracelet keep the weight to a very manageable 132 grams (on bracelet). If you want an even lighter experience, the previous owner purchased the original rubber strap with a signed titanium buckle for $463.00 in July 2022. The large hands and markers with luminous treatment are easy to read in all lighting conditions. The movement inside the case is an IWC 21 jewel 30110 (base caliber ETA 2892-A2). This automatic winding mechanism has been powering some of the world’s most famous Swiss brands with accuracy and reliability for decades. Included with the watch are the original box, documents (missing warranty card), bracelet sizing/strap fitting tools, and strap purchase receipt from the IWC boutique at Yorkdale Toronto. IWC is still making an AquaTimer with an internal bezel in stainless steel that retails at $8,900.00 CAD and can be seen on the IWC website here. This “new old stock” condition watch comes with our complimentary 1-year warranty (prorated 5 years). The factory-applied, protective transparent case back sticker is still in place. The watch is estate priced at $5,610.00 CAD. Stock #501-00217.
We are always looking to buy your estate pieces including brands such as Rolex, Cartier, Breitling, Tag Heuer, along with gold and diamond jewellery.
