We are very happy to be able to present you an extremely rare watch and absolute collectors grail. The Gerald Genta designed IWC Yacht Club 2 Jumbo in steel from 1977, in the highly sought after automatic caliber execution. And it is even „Beyer“ doublesigned. the 38mm steelcase has never been polished and is in absolute outstanding tight and sharp condition, with all numbers (serial 223xxxx) being engraved where you wanted to see them. The IWC automatic caliber 3254 is a modified JLC cal 889, like it was also used as a base for the Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin calibers from that era. This watch was clearly launched as a superflat competitor model to the two famous brothers Royal Oak and Nautilus. The quartz crisis in the 1970s, however, put an end to its lasting success. The yacht club 2 Jumbo, also in Quartz, is a rare watch in todays market, but as an automatic version it has virtually disappeared from the surface of earth. And with a doublesigned dial it could even be one of a kind. We have now freshly serviced the watch, as it was obviously storaged for most of it´s time, and can´t have been worn often. It will currently fit wrists up to 18cm circumference with it´s 22 links. All parts about it are full original and unmolested. The Beyer-signed matte black dial is in perfect condition with all the original tritium still being there on dial and in the hands. this iconic piece is actually ment to go to a 1970s Genta Jumbo collection besides PP Nautilus, AP Royal Oak and IWC Ingenieur and if you want so, even Jörg Hysek´s Vacheron 222.
