IWC Yacht Club

IWC Yacht Club

SKU: VWS-1607

Here is a fabulous IWC Yacht Club from 1966. The silver sunburst dial is in very fine condition, with a steel IWC block logo and the script IWC logo below. It has steel bar hour markers with black contrast and lume dots at the outer ends, double at 12 o’clock, with the characteristic steel spheres for minutes. The baton hands with the original lume and black contrast are in fine condition, with some corrosion visible under magnification. The hack stops the seconds hand when the crown is pulled out to time-setting mode, to facilitate more accurate time setting.


The wide stainless steel bezel is in fine condition, with some wear in the shape of small nicks around its edge, such as at around 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The C shaped stainless steel case is in fine condition, with a brushed face and brushed sides, showing some overall wear. The stainless steel case back with a radially brushed center and a polished rim is in very fine condition with a few small marks and scratches.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, IWC’s superb 854 movement with the Pellaton winding system beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in January 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Yacht Club has a special ring to watch enthusiasts and it is easy to see why with this watch. It looks great on the wrist with its large size and wonderful condition and is a watch that will serve you well for many years to come.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
