IWC on the movement:
"The original Cal 8531, 21 jewel automatic movement fitted to this watch is part of a family of movements considered the best ever automatics produced by IWC, and therefore one of horology’s best of all time.** It originated as the Cal. 85 in 1950 and evolved through Cal. 852 - 3 - 4. The last digit, 1, denotes this movement has a date function.

Given that it was in production for over 40 years and enhanced in each iteration, this movement has proven itself as durable, accurate and easy to service.
Above all else, its winding system, developed by IWC’s famous technical director, Albert Pellaton, has achieved great acclaim."

A worthwhile investment of a classic high-class watch in wonderful original condition!
