 Launched in 1978, the new Porsche-Designed IWC compass watch was groundbreaking at the time. Featuring a hinged case that covered the compass, the case had to be anti-magnetic in order to ensure the accuracy of the compass as well as the movement that had antimagnetic rotor bearing. Almost always found in the black PVD-coated case, the green edition is very rarely seen.

 The IWC Fliegerchronograph was one of the first ceramic made chronographs (an earlier model of the Da Vinci did exist) and quickly found a cult following among IWC collectors. Known to be extremely difficult to work with and prone to scratching combined with a high retail price at the time of launch, some estimate its total 2/3 years production run to around 1000 pieces. This particular example is in close to new condition showing no scratches, perfect case numbers on the caseback, a mint original dial with nice matching patina to the dial and hands and as it should, German calendar disks as the watch was sold through Bucherer. Without a doubt the most collectible “youngtimer” watch by IWC as reflected by current collectors demand.

 Known to many collectors as the reference 325, this model is actually the birth of the line and is considered the original Portuguese. According to IWC, the watch line was created when a Portuguese client requested a wristwatch with the same accuracy and size as a pocket watch and in response the first Portuguese watch was created. Interestingly, most of these early examples were delivered to Eastern Europe, probably due to many restrictions linked to World War II, and this example in particular was sold to Bratislava. While there are 3 generations accepted by collectors of reference 325, this is part of the first generation and according to IWC was only made in 304 pieces and is one of the most important IWC wristwatches ever manufactured. Provenance: Christies, Geneva, November 2010, lot 222.

 A minute repeating watch tells the time both visually and audibly. A slide on the side of the case, usually near the 9, will activate two hammers in the movement. These hammers strike two gongs curled within the case. First, one hammer strikes a gong of lower tonality; it will count out the hours. Then both hammers will strike both gongs alternatively to count out the quarter hours after that hour, and then the second hammer alone striking a gong of higher tonality will count out the minutes after that quarter hour. The repeating mechanism was developed by Daniel Quare. In 1687, he patented a mechanism that sounded the hours and the quarter hours. The early repeaters used bells. At the end of the 18th century, two bent-wire gongs became the more popular mechanism. In 1892, the first minute repeater wristwatch was produced by Omega, a model with a round-shaped case.
