I lied when I said the cal 89 definitely would be my last purchase in 2007. I ran across this iconic and rare IWC Doppel Chronograph 3711 and could not resist. It came with the original box and papers, but sadly not the original steel bracelet. I am now in the hunt to replace the strap with the one that was the OEM steel bracelet. The 3711 was only in production for two years, 1993-1995 and was replaced by the 3713 that was in production for 10 years. This is one is relatively rare and quite a find.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all....

Hey Bill.

Nice find... lovely watch and lovely wooden box.

pity my 3717 didn't come in such a nice box.... even my recent Zenith came with an equally nice one...

When did they stop supplying these with their watches?? or is it model dependant? any idea's?

Mike :wink:

@ sweetpea,

The box is not necessarily model dependent. My 5001 Portuguese came in a wooden that is a tad larger than this one. But, my 5022 Portuguese Perpetual is in a black leather box that is a tad larger than the black leather box for the Laureus and Saint Exupery. It seems IWC switched in2007 to the black leather boxes for most models.

Very nice (to say the least)! It seems every other week there is a new acquisition ☺

It is a nice watch, when I was looking at the big eng I got a chance to look at the top gun ceramic versions, cool watches.
