    IWC Ingenieur NOS price check

    Gents

    What would be a fair price for a NOS IWC 322701? Watch dates from 2006 but is totally unused and unworn and has a full set. Would 5.5k be a fair price for this? I can see used ones going for 4.5k or so but obviously with signs of wear and sometimes not a full set

    Id want it for used money,itll likely need a service,is this model sought after.
    What are they going for new ,or its equivalent.

    5k- for a minty one would be a good pricing in my opinion.. at 8-9k you may see the 322711 for example, which is quite rare.. alightly more if you are after the newer versions.

    I sold this 3227-12 for about 1500 a few years back.





    Bracelet, strap, deployant, box (including the book by Ken Noguchi) papers included.

    I love the ingenieurs, especially those rare ones. at the moment I only have the 322801 but am after the -11 and -12 for years... as per the 1500 sale, i ll keep the comment for me.

    Id want it for as little money as possible as it will depreciate like an anvil off a cliff.

    Lol. The -01 is a very meaty watch - there's a lot of metal there. Mint? NOS? 5k feels strong, but find another, I guess?

    Edit - under two years ago, and not mint, but...

    On the tube I was once sat next to one of those was there a titanium version? it was battered to Battersby, and it still looked *fantastic*

    Selling my 3228 wasn’t one of my brightest moves.

    5500 seems steep to me. As has been mentioned, if it's been sat for 17 years it will almost certainly want a service when you get it, so 6k+

    I was lucky with mine - bought direct from IWC head office (the watch had been worn by one of their senior employees as part of the watch pool). It was a bit battered, so when I bought it I arranged for a full service, valet and new bezel (cost me 460 back in 2009 - no doubt twice that now). Came back looking like new.

    Before the service & valet

    That is such a beautiful watch!

    I am not sure about the price. It seems they got a lot up last years. But with with a service it looks a bit steep imo.

    I bought mine in 2012 for 3.750 and traded it for a Milgauss two years later.

    I lusted after a 3227-01 for years and finally bought one this year after monitoring the market for a very long time.

    They're not easy to find now and prices have risen considerably from their low point. I wish I'd bought one sooner but that's life. The prices people were paying five or ten years ago are now irrelevant.

    I bought mine from Chrono 24 for a sliver under 5K. It's a full set and in great condition, and having contacted the IWC Concierge I found out it had been recently serviced.

    No regrets. I love it.

    Meijlinder, not seen around here for a while, reports that in the 6 years since he got his, equivalent ones have gone up about 40%, for private sales. From 3200 to 4500, roughly.
