Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen’s latest addition- The Portuguese Hand- Wound Eight Days

Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen makes another exciting addition to its sophisticated watch family with the Portuguese Hand- Wound Eight Days.  IWC Schaffhausen has one of the longest and far-reaching traditions and is the epitome of clarity, purist elegance and innovation, combined with precision and state-of-the-art mechanics.  The Portuguese watches still carry a spirit of discovery and the desire to travel and explore unchartered territories. The IWC collection with its precision instruments acknowledges on-going technical development and presents an extensive range of elegant timepieces.

The Portuguese Hand- Wound Eight Days owes its classic look to the new case design twinned with an arched-edge front glass. The Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days in red gold with its silver-plated dial, Arabic numerals and the characteristic feuille hands is the essence of simple aesthetics.  The sister models in stainless steel feature a black or silver-plated dial  with rhodium-plated numerals and hands. Its features include the typical railway-track-style chapter ring and the IWC-manufactured 59215 calibre. The watch has a very long power reserve, allowing it to run for exactly 192 hours – or 8 days – without needing to be rewound. Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days comes in leather straps made by Italian luxury shoe manufacturer Santoni. The versions in stain­less steel are fitted with black straps, while the red gold model comes with a strap in dark brown.

Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has been producing timepieces of lasting value since 1868 with a clear focus on technology and development. The company has gained an international reputation based on a passion for innovative solutions and technical ingenuity.
