IWC Cal. 89 Shark Fin 18k Rose 1953

IWC has produced a very wide variety of wristwatches from an early time ranging from dress watches to aviation watches. This example, in 18k rose gold with it's white/silver dial would remain a constant in anyone's collections, especially as it comes with beautiful thin shark fin lugs.

In a huge 36 mm case which is considered oversized for the era, especially for a dress watch, it brings back relevance to today's modern aesthetics.
