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.
