PORTOFINO HAND-WOUND The IWC Vintage Collection: If you could only dream of owning this watch back then, here’s your second chance to make that dream a reality. IWC is celebrating its 140th anniversary with an homage to its classic design and has reinterpreted the six legendary timepieces that founded today’s watch families. The models bear impressive testimony to IWC’s philosophy: “Probus Scafusia” – good, solid craftsmanship from Schaffhausen.
Ticking away inside the Ingenieur Automatic, the Aquatimer Automatic and the Da Vinci Automatic are the reliable IWC-manufactured movements from the 80000-calibre family with Pellaton winding. This pawl-winding mechanism, designed by Albert Pellaton especially for IWC, is also equipped with a shock absorption system. For the Pilot’s Watch Hand-Wound, the Portuguese Hand-Wound and the Portofino Hand-Wound, history called for a pocket watch movement with a manual winding system. The result was a modern movement based on the legendary IWC 98 calibre. A see-through sapphire glass back cover provides a view of the nickel-silver three-quarter plate and the characteristic index.
Despite their technical differences, all six models have one thing in common: their ancestors are milestones in the history of IWC, and are treasured and collected by watch connoisseurs the world over. When F. A. Jones moved from Boston to Switzerland in 1868 to found the International Watch Company in Schaffhausen, he was fulfilling a dream. Now you have a chance to do the same.
