Horological Meandering: Wearing the "Aqua Lung" from "U.S. Divers Co." this week.

The watch, reference 1573-666 is from 1967 and it is equiped with a A. Schild/Felsa 4004 automatic movement. Mind the odd "lying 30" on the bezel ..... Cheers, HSTE

IWC: Ain't it sweet? The 1st generation IWC Ingenieur ref. 666 AD from March 20, 1958

It is on a ref. 11 IWC stainless steel bracelet. All in mint conditon. Unpolished, unmolested, just like a time-capsule. Cheers, HSTE
