I love this watch too, Marco.

Still on the hunt for this one.

The explanation about the gasket system of the winding crown is funny.

It could have been said in 2 words: Super Compressor!

Smile

Is it yours, or are you on the hunt?

Thanks a lot for this post, Amigo.

Lucky Guy, Marco!


I wonder if I didn't see this one on Chrono 24 . Com, at this moment.

There are those who are thinking, and there are others who are acting...

Thank You Thomas,
it is about 38 mm (exactly a little more of 37,5 mm), considering the internal rotating bezel it is quite big.

There are two right now on Chrono 24,
but be careful, to exactly evaluate this watch you have to pay attention to a lot of things:

- the case back and the clarity of the written and it must be a supercompressor case back
- the dial (remember that the applied IWC logo started from about 1970 and was not in very early 812)
- the crowns

The bracelet is a Guy Frères and is quite rare and difficult to find.

I think that the bracelet is Frères Gay, and not guy frères.

Good catch!

Great watch Marco.

And full set, a real collecting diving watch.

It's not cool to give a bad idea at Nicolas IWC ref. 812 "the first Aquatimer" 61526
