The company was created to combine the excellent craftsmanship of Switzerland with the modern engineering of the United States in the city of Schaffhausen on the German border.
The same Swiss watchmaker has a different philosophy from French-speaking companies such as Geneva and Vallée de Joux, which is also expressed in watches.
This Ref.810 is a round watch in the latter half of the 1960s, and is one of the vintage watches collectively called "Old Inter".
The case is made of 18K yellow gold and the size is 34mm, which is a little small.
The crown has a fish (coelacanth) mark, which is also a proof of a waterproof watch.
The structure of the case is not a screw back but a one-piece case, so it can be said that the waterproof performance is higher.
The hole mark is between the lugs on the 6 o'clock side of the case. , And is engraved on the inside of the case.
The dial is slightly glossy, with a shade between silver and ivory. I get the impression that it is close to Patek Philippe's Patek Philippe.
The color is exquisite, and it is good that there is no major deterioration or corrosion.
The index is a bar index with 4 thickened points, and the needle is a pencil hand with tritium luminescent paint applied to each. The
movement is equipped with a hand-wound Cal.89.
Albert Pellaton, who became IWC's director of design in 1944, is based on the idea of practicality and robustness, rationalization of design and productivity. Created numerous movements.
It is no exaggeration to say that he was the one who laid the foundation for today's IWC image, "simple and strong."
Cal.89 (caliber 89) is the greatest masterpiece of Pellaton and is called "masterpiece among masterpieces". The movement was born in 1946 and is based on Cal.70.
The fact that it was also used in the military watch Mark XI (Mark 11) developed for the Royal Air Force shows its robustness.
Cal.89 was manufactured for about 30 years until the mid-1970s. You can see that it was so good that it didn't need a big update.
In addition, the "Pellaton type self-winding" movement mounted on yacht clubs was created based on this Cal.89.
This is a vintage-like beauty and practicality. p>

About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
