VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Tiffany & Co IWC Cress Arrow 14K PG Top Hat Design circa 1950’s

SOLD

Vintage IWC man’s 14K PG “Top Hat” design model retailed by Tiffany & Co. circa 1950’s. Featuring a 24 x 42mm Cressarrow signed case with prominent stepped hooded design on top and bottom, aptly named because of it’s resemblance to a man’s top hat. The current model features a beautifully restored antique salmon dial with applied silver indexes and silver leaf style hands. Powered by 17 jewel manual wind IWC movement with subsidiary seconds. Fitted with 18mm wide fine leather or crocodile strap. Fully serviced and detailed and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.

NOTE: This is an unusual “Top Hat” model, longer, and with more curved lines than the more familiar contract case Top Hat models more commonly seen on Hamilton and other American brand models. Furthermore, while the dial here has been restored, we can confirm that the watch was in fact retailed by Tiffany & Co. and originally bore the Tiffany & Co signature, and still bears the distinctive Tiffany & Co. hand engraved inventory numbers on the underside of the bezel. See photos.
