Reference Numbers in Recent Catalogues

The International Watch Company catalogues have been issued with both a calendar year (e.g. 1991) and a financial year (e.g. 1991/1992), but what seems to be important is the date in the last few pages. Both the 1991 and the 1991/1992 catalogue have April 1991 on page 164 and are otherwise identical. Recently IWC has issued all the catalogues with a financial year (e.g. 2002/2003), but it is the first year (e.g. 2002) that is the year of issue, and the catalogues referred to in the table below use the year of issue.

I have not seen a 1992 (1992/1993) or a 1997 (1997/1998) catalogue and would be interested in either acquiring the catalogue or the data to complete this table.

The catalogues from 1988 are the same size and format and are not that scarce, whereas editions prior to 1988 are more difficult to find. Happy catalogue hunting and I hope this table proves useful in the interim.

Please remember when using the table that some watches were available after they were deleted from the retail catalogue. IWC may have chosen to only show some models in the retail catalogue, some may have been shown as available in the "dealer book" or remained on a dealers' shelf as "new-old-stock".  I have chosen to show only one image, reference numbers may be available in different metals, with different dials, etc.

The IWC home page has the current collection and the catalogue is also available in PDF format.
