Rare vintage gents jumbo 18k yellow gold IWC wristwatch, ref #R2471.  Circa 1970’s.  Unusual champagne bark finish textured IWC dial with applied indexes.  Tonneau style watch case.  Swiss made, mechanical manual wind movement, caliber #403.  The left side of the case has a gold hallmark.  The inside and outside of the case back is stamped with the same six digit serial number.  The inside of the case back is signed IWC, has the 18K 0.750 gold hallmark, and the reference #R 2471. Comes on a brand new Tokki Project leather strap with a stainless steel Tokki Project tang buckle.  Approximate dimensions are 39mm x 30mm.

The dial and hands have areas of spotting throughout as can be expected due to age.  The crown has minor dings near the center.  The watch has superficial scratches due to normal wear and age.  Overall condition is good.  Running at the time of inspection, however not checked for accuracy nor water resistance/proofness.  An overhaul is always recommended for used watches.

For a vintage IWC, this is considered to be an over sized model.  What makes it even more unusual is the bark finish texture of the dial.
