Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 5 years ago.
I am sorry I do not; the aforementioned was all that was presented. To be sure of the components, their integrity as well as the quality and condition of the watch(if you are thinking for retail value, I would strongly recommend having the piece inspected and thoroughly examined in person. This is also important because the case number XXXXX the movement numbers may be different

According to IWC though based on the 73 it was a finger-bridge movement with 16 jewels. Roughly 52,500 of the Calibre 73 movement were made between 1913 and 1930.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you with your fine timepiece. I would strongly recommend having the piece examined and thoroughly inspected so you can get an idea of quality, condition and any other information. Furthermore IWC actually offers a registry program for these pieces. You can write to them and request a Extract from the Register which will narrow down and detail all the information about the piece for you which will be the most accurate way to obtain any and all information about the piece..
