This freshly serviced by IWC Fliegerchronograph is still under their warranty. Model reference 3740
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
The reference 3740 ran from 1988 to 1993. As this example does not have the sales papers we are estimating it was made circa 1990.
This is the smaller Fliegerchronograph that IWC made – the automatic 3706 is bigger, and the Doppelchronograph larger again. The smaller size is possible as this reference we have uses the mechaquartz movement shared with Jaeger-LeCoultre. This gives the convenience of quartz, with the sweep chronograph seconds hand and instant reset. This example also has the benefit of having been fully serviced by IWC in Switzerland in March 2021, and has a 24 month warranty from that date (which is why we have not taken the caseback off for photography). As well as a complete service the watch had a new hour and minute hands and a new dial fitted. The dial is from the later 3741 reference, as no 3740 new dials exist any more. That means it has Superluminova and a the later look of the newer design. The leather strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour if preferred. We have the original IWC strap that is quite heavily worn that we will include in the sale, as well as the service box.
This watch will be supplied with an IWC service box, service papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
