IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN Exclusive Timepieces

IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN exclusive timepieces. Only At The Promenade Shops

IWC Schaffhausen brings exclusive timepiece collections this season including Portugieser Perpetual Calendar, Portugieser Annual Calendar, Portofino Hand Wound Tourbillon Retrograde. 

Portugieser Perpetual Calendar is a single moon model (Ref. 5033) has several minimal design modifications. The new arched-edge front glass reduces the optical height of the case. The perpetual calendar shows not only the lunar cycles but also the seconds, minutes, hours, date, day, month and year in four digits. Mechanically programmed, the calendar takes into account the different lengths of the months and even the leap years. 

Portugieser Annual Calendar is powered by the new IWC-manufactured 52850 calibre. Both are found for the first time in the Portugieser Annual Calendar (Ref. 5035). Located at “12 o’clock” on the dial, IWC’s annual calendar shows the month, date and day in three separate, semicircular windows. The switching mechanism automatically takes into account the differing lengths of individual months. The sub-dial on the opposite side contains the power reserve display. The in-house movement with 7-day power reserve is yet another quantum leap in the history of the Portugieser family. The rare combination of an annual calendar and 168-hour calibre should make this latest complication from the House of IWC more attractive for watch connoisseurs.

Portofino Hand Wound Tourbillon Retrograde (Ref. IW516501) is the first Portofino to feature a tourbillon, with the balance, pallet and escape wheel mounted in a cage that rotates around its own axis once every minute. This constant rotation helps to counteract the pull of gravity so that it does not adversely affect the watch’s rate and accuracy. The newly developed hacking tourbillon enables the watch to be set with down-to-the-second accuracy. IWC has also revised the geometry of the pallet and the escape wheel, plus it has manufactured the components using diamond-coated silicon, thus reducing friction. This contributes substantially to the power reserve of eight days achieved with the IWC hand-wound 59900 calibre. A retrograde date display and power reserve display accompany the flying minute tourbillon on the dial. The case, with a diameter of 45 millimetres, is made of 18-carat red gold. The dial is silver-plated and the hands are gold-plated; the appliqués are made of solid gold. The sapphire-glass back provides a view of the calibre, which is adorned with Geneva stripes.
