This arrived. Ever since acquiring my other Ingenieur, I've been looking more into IWC's history and this Genta designed reference got on my radar. But the "jumbo" SL model seemed too big for my wrists, and I discovered that they made a "skinny" version, which fits my wrist much better. The movement is ETA, but I don't care. The integrated bracelet is surprisingly not that far off from a Nautilus'. And the pop of the gold bezel with no gold center links just seems to work here. Given the price paid, I'm very happy with it!

I got this A Barthelay some time ago and I haven’t find much information about it, but for sure is pre 90’

I just like it as it is but still haven’t decide which strap would be best for it.

Great piece congrats. I would keep it simple for the strap, something in a dark brown or tan in calfskin or alligator with a matching stitch.

Not quite pre-1990, but pretty close: I had been looking for a Seiko “Ashtray” for about a year and a half now and finally got my hands on one.

I’m over the moon with it! I need to get some photos with this and my vintage Citizen and Zodiac divers all together.
