IWC Mark XVI Pilot Automatic ref. 3255 (Box & Papers)


Brand: IWC Schaffhausen (International Watch Co.)

Model: Mark XVI Pilot Automatic ref. 3255 (Discontinued Model); includes original box, completed guarantee/warranty card, guarantee/service booklet, instruction booklet, original purchase receipt from Tourneau (12/30/2009), and Tourneau watch warranty booklet; Swiss Made; serial number 3,419,865 circa 2009

Case: Solid stainless steel anti-magnetic case with screw-down back is approximately 39mm excluding the original signed IWC screw-down crown

Strap: 20mm genuine IWC black crocodile leather strap with replacement brushed stainless steel tang buckle (unsigned)

Movement: IWC cal. 30110 self-winding automatic movement (21 jewels) with traditional quick-set date feature and manual-winding capability; 42-hour power reserve; 28,800 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Iconic black pilot's dial with large white Arabic numerals designed to be clear and legible in the field; luminous 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock hour markers; original black luminous hands; original white sweeping-seconds hand; quick-set date display at 3 o'clock with color-matched date wheel; solid stainless steel anti-magnetic case; domed polarized sapphire crystal; discontinued model

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with only very light signs of wear consistent with age; solid stainless steel anti-magnetic case appears to be completely unpolished with the original finishes throughout; razor-sharp lugs with the original bevels/chamfers in tact and minor wear to the top right lug; crisp caseback with all engravings clearly visible; perfect original dial and handset

Other: The IWC Mark XVI is one of very few modern watches that we endorse at this price point (and for obvious reasons) - It's the perfect blend between vintage aesthetic and modern feel while retaining key design traits of original IWC pilot's watches. At 39mm, its a great size for daily wear and we prefer it over the current 40mm Mark XVIII. It will even slide under the cuff of a dress shirt or blazer, so don't be afraid to dress it up. When clients request a sub-$3,000 modern watch that they can wear daily, the versatile IWC Mark XVI is always on our short list.
