Notes

Launched for the company’s 125th celebration in 1993, the
Destriero Scafusia was the most complicated IWC ever produced.
This current example is the 124th example produced out of 125
and was sold through The Watch Gallery London in 1995. Featuring
a beautifully hand-engraved movement and a flying tourbillon,
the Destriero Scarfusia was one of the few grande complications
available on the market at the time and is sure to become a real
classic in the history of IWC.
