The annual watch event, the Geneva International Watch Fair, has been opened. The watch team’s special front report team has begun to work, and they will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive watch fair reports. Now let’s take a look at the big pictures of the latest watches launched by IWC at the Geneva Watch Fair.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the brand’s most iconic Portuguese collection, IWC has launched a new special edition of the IWC Portuguese series manual winding eight-day power reserve watch “75th Anniversary”, recalling the little-known but attractive IWC Founder of the Portuguese collection. This limited edition anniversary model is almost the same as the Portuguese series founder, and the manual winding of it once a week has become a wonderful ceremony for the wearer.
The newly launched IW510206 model is equipped with an 18k red gold case and silver-plated dial, which inherits the color design of the historical models and the font of the brand logo almost intact. A date display was added at the ‘6 o’clock’ position.
43 mm case diameter
Cogwheel screw-in crown with IWC logo
Brown alligator strap with rose gold pin buckle
The case is naturally curved, with soft sanding at the corners
Small three-pointer design, small seconds dial and round date display window at 6 o’clock
Equipped with the 59215 self-made movement, the watch has a reliable power of up to eight days in a proud size of 37.8 mm in diameter-in fact, this power can be almost nine days, but an ingenious braking device moves the movement Travel time is limited to 192 hours after winding to ensure accurate movement of the movement, which is exactly eight days. Stopping the movement before the mainspring tension is completely exhausted will help eliminate the adverse effects of the constant weakening of the mainspring moment and ensure that the accuracy of the watch remains the same throughout the entire operation. The Glucydur® beryllium balance wheel with a trimmer frequency of 4800 Hz, which is 28800 times per hour, and the Breguet hairspring that is bent and shaped using traditional watchmaking technology, ensure the watch’s extremely high accuracy.
Summary: The five-day Geneva Haute Horlogerie show presented a unique visual feast for us, and we look forward to the reporting group in front of the Watch House to bring us more exciting content.
