A pilot's attractive, antimagnetic vintage wristwatch "Special Wristwatch for Aviators", so called Mark IX, sold on 1937/08/18 to Novotny in Prague. The Mark IX was produced between 1936 and 1944, now a total of circa 450 watches is currently registered at IWC. With two IWC extracts from the archives

Case: steel, push back, anti-magnetic protection cap, bidirectional rotating bezel. Dial: black.

Of the wide range of aviator's watches that were being produced in the 1930s, the IWC Mark series is one of the most famous models. The first of the series, the Mark IX , was produced in 1936 and styled a "Spezialuhr für Flieger", i.e., a "Special Pilot's Watch". The model was fitted with the shock-resistant calibre 83, which was also adjusted to extreme temperatures. Its successor "Mark X" used the same calibre but unlike the Mark IX it did not feature a revolving bezel.

This watch comes with an extract of the archives made in 2004 and in 2009. Since 2006 all Mark IX must have been checked by IWC in Schaffhausen to get an extract of the archives.
Case: very good
Dial: very good, slightly oxydized
Movm.: very good, capable of running
