Notes

Produced between 1982 and 1984, reference 3710 was made in a very limited run of 150 pieces. The reference 3710 developed amid the Swiss quartz crisis was the first complicated wristwatch made by the firm featuring a moon phase. Unknown to the general public as these were never advertised in catalogues, these traditional yet complicated wristwatches were quickly all sold and represent a milestone in the development of IWC right before the launch of the perpetual Da Vinci.
