    With IWC Guarantee card, operating instructions, polishing cloth, original fitted black leather presentation box and outer packaging.

    Reference "IW371803" was specially made for the German football team for their participation in the 2008 UEFA European football championship. The model was made in a limited edition of only 500 examples, out of which 50 were given to the members of the German team.
    The dial is featuring the colours of the DFB team (Deutscher Fussball-Bund or German Soccer Association), white, black, red and yellow.

    IWC has modified the minute graduation especially for this model, indicating 45 minutes, the duration of one half of the game, any extra time played printed in red.

    The case back is engraved "Offizielle Uhr der Deutschen Nationalmannschaft" or "Official Watch of the German National Football Team" and centred by the logo of the DFB.
