This is one of the rare IWC references the IWC Portugese Automatic Ref. 3531-005 with the Black Dial. This comes with Box and manuals but no warranty card.
The watch is in BEAUTIFUL pre-owned condition with some minor marks from minimal wear (near mint). The watch is keeping excellent time.
IWC only made a few of this smaller 35mm Portugesier and very few with the black dial. True collector's watch.
It comes with the IWC stainless steel tang and IWC leather strap.Asking $6,750.00 shipped and insured. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any question or inquiries. PM or call/text at 818.856.0793
I have references from several high-end exchanges on here and many more elsewhere, including 100% positive feedback through many exchanges on eBay. I am based in Southern California and am also open to a face to face transaction.
Some more information about the 3531:
The movement of the Ref. 3531 is a Jaeger LeCoultre calibre 891/2, as currently used in the JLC Master Day
Date (as the calibre 891/447 with calendar plate). This movement, similar in design to the well-known JLC 889, is a 36 jewel, 28,800 bph automatic, using the familiar JLC bidirectional switching rocker automatic wind mechanism. Like the JLC version, the movement is fitted with a Triovis fine rate adjustment device and smooth Glucydur balance.
The movement in the Ref. 3531 is clearly finished by IWC and differs from the typical JLC style of finishing. Rather than using Geneva
bars, IWC has used a handsome, simple version of circular graining on both the rotor and movement bars, and anglage on the edges of all visible components. The overall finish is slightly less classical than JLC’s finishing of the same movement, but has a quietly elegant, craftsman-like appearance. In “feel,” the finish is not unlike the movements of Frederic Piguet, which is to say, very well-done.
