My late X'mas gift - IWC Cal65 Pocket Watch

Got this pocket watch is the most happy event on this X'mas since it is special!! :smile_o12:
Actually I not get "whole" pocket watch at same time and it is a long long time project~

I bought this IWC Cal.65 movement about 3 years ago, this is a prevent label watch and date back to 1913-24.
The re-painted 24hrs dial indicate it is a re-issue for military use on WWI. :smile_o10:

However, I keep looking for the suitable watch case (IWC or not) but never found...
Day after day, the luck make me spot this IWC case on bay with little description on the size. :smile_o05:
I quite sure it will fit on my movement after some study on web and also luck enough to win the bid.

Finally, the movement and the case meet together with perfect fit on this X'mas. :smile_o13::smile_o13:
The amazing moment you see the movement fitting on the case is really the joy of playing antique watch~

Thanks for all and Happy New Year :smile_o11:

咁都比你砌返一隻錶,
難得!
令我想起當初買鏡頭,
幾支砌返一支的情況,從呢個過程可以學到好多嘢,
真係有錢都買唔到

回覆 3# , 4#的帖子

YES, I also feel I am very lucky on this time.
Matching European watch case is very difficult since different brand have different size and never fit each other...

However, for US pocket watch match case is relative easy because 18size movement always fit for 18size case.
