Yes other side of the IWC card.
Oh don't forget the sex appeal of the moustache.
My guess on that is since it's the Ref/Metal line, it's some form of acier. Why there's an H there, I don't know.
Looked like Itacie to me.
The Sheriff is still around, but he retired. Turned in his badge and firearm.
..... and yes, you would have absolutely ended up with some kind of avatar message relating to stripping.
Damn son, door number 2 please!
Not a pole... a Polerouter.
Try to read more carefully please.
I know! I've been bugging him on IG about it
I must admit that I miss your posts and the custom avatar message.
You are forgiven, for only God knows that WIS are rampant and provide many offerings to him...
As many of you know by now my brand of choice in the watch world is Universal Geneve. Within this brand I had decided to concentrate on simple time only mechanical watches for several reasons : they are readily available, there's a large variety, they fit my wrist better, etc.
This watch was also offered to me by my watchmaker. At the beginning of November, I phoned my watchmaker to see how progress was going on the service of the IWC and Polerouter posted above. He usually does my watches withing a month and it had been about three months for these two. He was in a particularly good mood when I phoned and he said: "Why don't you drop by the shop this afternoon, I found a Universal Geneve in my things and you might be interested." I wasn't going to say no. Just before I hung up he added: "Oh yeah, it's a Diapason (Tuning fork) so not sure it will interest you."
This watch is not for everyone but I wasn't going to refuse a NOS Universal Geneve with tags and original strap. Like the Zodiac posted above, it will add some colour to my collection.
Behind door number 2 :
A NOS Universal Geneve Unisonic "Buzzsaw" dial.
The serial number is 2829884 dating it later than 1967 and I believe these were made until the mid 70s.
Ref. 852101 in blue. I have seen some with grey dials but no many with the blue dials.
Cal. 2-51 or Accutron cal. 2180F
Originally sold for 525chf
Here are a couple links talking about these watches :
Hopefully I didn't build this up too much...
So it was a great day!
Congratulations, man! Door 2 didn't disappoint!
That dial is pure seventies funk, fantastic!
Just like this:
My first thought was it is the letters H A U L
HAU is a common abbreviation in German for Herren Armband Uhr (Mans Wrist Watch). If it could be that, then perhaps the L could be for leder (leather). It doesn't seem likely, but you did ask for ideas !
Thanks yes thats a possibility and I am honestly asking for any ideas.
Here's a close up.
I love that Zodiac!!!
Other side of the Tag: Hacie.I guess H for Homme.Men model and Acier.
Nice IWC nos by the way..
