More about IWC Vintage Caliber 83 RARE Two-Tone Pink Dial SS

This is a vintage stainless steel c. 1950's IWC Caliber 83. It has an ostrich leather strap with a stainless steel tang buckle, and an acrylic crystal. There is a solid brushed snap-on case back, inside of which is engraved "ACIER – STAYBRITE (stainless steel)." It has a push/pull winding crown that's flush with the case. The 37.5mm diameter solid two-body case, downturned lugs, and angled bezel are polished. The dial is extremely rare two-tone pink with applied steel Arabic numeral hour marker around a perimeter minute track with small black hour squares. It has gold-toned epee hands and there is a subsidiary constant running seconds dial at the 6 o'clock position. It has a power reserve of 38 hours at full wind, and the 10mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

The mechanical manual winding IWC caliber 83 is constructed with 16 jewels, an Incabloc anti-shock device, 6 bridges, a bimetallic or monometallic balance, and a straight-line lever escapement. It has a self-compensating flat balance spring, a micrometer regulator, and a Breguet overcoil. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 18,000 vph.

The IWC caliber 83 movement was a transitional caliber from pocket watches to wristwatches. It was first produced in c. 1935, and was retired in 1947.
