has an Important Watches closeout in Geneva on the fifteenth of May. Perusing their bartering index, I saw this GST Rattrapante chronograph (ref.371508). IWC suspended their GST line of watches a couple of years prior, presumably not without a substantial explanation, but rather I truly end up enjoying the plan of the GST.
This 43mm wrist watch has a rattrapante chronograph development (type 79230) to have the option to record a transitional time, utilizing the pusher at 10 o’clock. This development depends on an ETA/Valjoux 7750 development, however altered by IWC. This watch goes back from 2000/2001 and has a stature of 16.9mm, which truly makes it an enormous and thick chronograph, particularly for those days.
Sotheby’s gauges this watch at 6.000 – 8.000 CHF. On Chrono24 they are recorded for approx 5.000-6.000 Euro (8.000 CHF is approx 6.000 Euro), so we don’t anticipate that anything funny should happen here.
Besides this advanced IWC GST Rattrapante chronograph, this sale has a great deal of vintage Rolex (counting a decent ref.6262 Daytona), various fascinating vintage Omega watches and obviously the standard suspects by Patek Philippe.
