Recently, IWC launched two new Portofino manual winding eight-day power reserve watches. The new watch has a unique aesthetic charm, which further enriches the classic Portofino series. The first watch (IW510115) used a grey suede strap for the first time, perfectly harmonizing with the slate gray dial; the second watch (IW510116) for the first time combined a stainless steel Milanese bracelet and a dark blue dial to present a distinctive appearance .
Since its introduction in 1984, the IWC Portofino collection has attracted watch enthusiasts who love the Italian lifestyle. Today, the brand has expanded this iconic collection by introducing two new watches with manually wound eight-day power reserve movements. In the first watch (IW510115), IWC used suede for the first time as a strap material. The suede has a fine fleece surface and a soft texture that is not only visually appealing but also very comfortable to wear. In addition, the grey suede strap perfectly matches the slate grey dial. The second watch (IW510116), IWC offers a new combination of materials and colors. In this hand-wound classic design variant, the dark blue dial and elegant stainless steel Milanese bracelet form a pleasing contrast.
Both new watches are equipped with the 59210 movement, which can run accurately and reliably for a full 192 hours, which is 8 days, and then automatically stops. In fact, the movement can run for nine days, and early stopping can ensure constant torque during operation. The pointer power reserve indicator is set between 8 and 9 o’clock, reminding the wearer to wind the movement at the right time. The balance-free balance wheel vibrates up to 28,800 times per hour, and the Breguet hairspring, which is bent and shaped according to the ancient watchmaking tradition, ensures that the time of the watch is accurate. The transparent sapphire crystal case back allows the wearer to appreciate the precision operation of the Geneva-decorated movement. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
