IWC fans who are paying attention to the calendar should know by now that 2018 marks the 150-year anniversary of the well-known brand from Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Founded in 1868 by American watchmaker Florentine Ariosto Jones, Iwc Watches Melbourne Australia Replica would gradually and slowly, over its one-and-a-half-century-long history, develop a reputation for solidly engineered watches — the firm’s Latin motto, “Probus Scafusia,” translates to “good craftsmanship in Schaffhausen.” To celebrate the 150-year anniversary of the brand, IWC has just unveiled two high-tech tourbillon watches that clearly showcase the newest know-how in complicated watchmaking. Meet the new IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Edition “150 Years” and the IWC Portugieser Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition “150 Decades.” The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Edition “150 Years” is important because it is the very first time IWC has combined a perpetual calendar with a tourbillon on the dial. The watch comes in a 45mm wide Portugieser-style case, which IWC fans will instantly recognize from its distinctive short and curved lugs as well as the chunky knurled crown. Paired with a black Santoni alligator strap and water resistant to only 30m, it goes without saying that it should be kept off from water.The dial is white and includes a lacquered finish with large black Arabic numerals printed in the signature ribbon of IWC’s Portugieser watches. Sizable heat-treated leaf-shaped hour and minute hands and a straightforward railroad-style minutes monitor ensure time is easily read.
The IWC-manufactured chronograph comes in an 18-carat red gold case, measuring 42mm in diameter, and was was designed by Rosberg himself in collaboration with Christian Knoop, Creative Director at Iwc Watches Chester Replica Schaffhausen. A special feature of this watch is its see-through sapphire-glass back, which is printed with the “NICO” lettering from Rosberg’s helmet.
Limited to 23 watches, the Ingenieur Chronograph “Tribute to Nico Rosberg” (Ref. IW380805) recalls Rosberg’s 23 Grand Prix wins. The dial is slate-coloured and the hands are gold-plated. The watch is driven by an IWC-manufactured 69375 calibre, an automatic chronograph movement with a column-wheel control device. The bidirectional pawl-winding system generates a power reserve of 46 hours and the watch beats at 28’800 vph.
