image IWC MARK XII Like a lot of people we’ve always been very fond of the the IWC Mark XII. Here’s one we’ve found for sale that is super rare. This watch was issued to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Penge + Privat Økonomi" a Danish investment /finances magazine, in conjunction with Conhagen IWC agent Ole Mathiesen. Only 25 were made and the watch can be recognised by its red second hand. The 25 purchasers were given the option of having the magazine's anniversary logo embossed on the back plate but unsurprisingly no one took up on the offer so the back is mercifully free from unsightly markings. You only see the edition numbering " Nr XX / 25 " which the follows the normal ring of the "Die Fliegeruhr" text. The deal included what they claim to be extra stringent movement regulation tests by a "maitre de reglage". Direct link
