For the enthusiasts of handwound watches, will present Portuguese Hand Wing Eight Days Edition “150 Years” in a unique Jeanville collection design with white lacquered dial.
As you already know, I have some soft spots on the IWC Porto Geyser, especially the hand rolled version. I myself often hand winding Ref. With my regular rotation 5454. There is just something about the big but relatively thin case that actually works with its clean dial layout and my opinion. Thankfully, the IWC did not try too clever at symbolic hand-rolled Portuguese ‘s special “150 year” version, but instead he really concentrates on the charm of minimalist design I decided to.
There are two versions of 18 karat red gold case and stainless steel (both sides are 43 mm × 12.2 mm both sides polished and brushed in contrast to each other). The former is limited to 250 sheets, the latter is produced with limited production of 1,000 sheets.But you don’t have to worry, we offer replicas here, ready.Both models feature a unique white dial of lacquered finish seen in other works making up part of this 150 year collection, complemented by black Arabic numerals and railway chapter rings . The small second is displayed on the auxiliary dial slightly recessed at 6 o’clock, and the aperture at 3 o’clock displays the date. Like the small second, both the hour hand and the minute hand are blue steel, which is actually in contrast to the white of the dial.
As mentioned earlier, these white lacquer, dial like enamel are really special. Dials created using translucent lacquer of multiple layers are flat polished and brushed and then imprinted several times to obtain 3D effects on indexes and trucks. At first glance it may be permissible to think that it was made from enamel, but certainly there is no difference from the real one.
These limited edition watches are equipped with discount copy IWC hand-wound type 59215 caliber. As the name suggests, this will provide a power reserve of 8 days. In order to keep the dial as clean as possible, the power reserve display is on the back of the movement and is visible by sapphire case back. Equipped with Breguet spring and 30 jewels that vibrate at 28,800 v / ph, this movement reminds us simple and elegantly the reason why we love the IWC. As a final touch, there is Jean Billy Medallion with 18 carat gold on the back of the movement. Both models are presented in Santani’s black crocodile leather strap and are paired with a pin buckle tailored to the metal of the case.
