Notes: For your consideration is an incredibly rare and near perfect condition IWC Ingenieur Reference 866 with a beautiful silver sunburst dial. To make the watch even better is at the bottom you can see that this is a sigma dial! You won't find many of these for sale. When you first feel this watch in your hand the first thing that comes to mind is quality. It feels so well built you might mistake it for a modern watch. It is solid with a wonderful jumbo size and the design that is just clean and flawless. One of my favorite features is the large signed crown as it gives the case a very strong presence matching its beautiful lines. The applied "IWC" logo dial and original lume filled hands are in excellent condition with perfect matching patina. The case is thick and sharp with plenty of its original factory lines. The bracelet is a huge bonus being that they are hard to find with the watch, unfortunately this bracelet is short and will likely only accommodate a 6.5 inch wrist or smaller. But a nice matching leather strap will be given to the lucky own who gets this rare and iconic watch.
