History IWC: All IWC-movements have a history and most of them also have a mark. Nowadays usually the "Probus Scafusia", in the past many others were used also. People who are familiar with the manufacturer know, that IWC Schaffhausen has records of the reference number, the caliber, the case material, the delivery date and the buyer, ever since 1882. The company name can be found (English italics) on all calibers by Jones (with movement numbers 1 to around 26,000), the Seeland-caliber (circa 26,000-61,000), caliber 28/29 a bascule pilier (100,000 to 120,000) as well as the early calibers 32, 33, 34, 35, 59 and 60 with very low movement numbers like 33, 86 616 or something like 620.
