The 59210-Calibre

The newly developed 59210 calibre for the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days follows on in the 50000-calibre tradition: it is large, accurate and reliable, and is the first hand-wound movement from Schaffhausen with an eight-day power reserve. Actually, it would be nine days, but it is mechanically stopped before all the tension in the spring is exhausted, eliminating the effect of reduced torque in the mainspring as it winds down. This ensures greater precision the whole time the watch is running. And the owner will always be on the safe side if he winds his watch once a week. The fact that the movement is part of the 50000-calibre family is also clear from the impressive technical specifications: the indexless balance with its frequency of 28,800 beats per hour helps to ensure a high level of accuracy, as does the Breguet spring, bent into shape in accordance with ancient watchmaking tradition. There are also a power reserve display, a date display and small hacking seconds. IWC's watchmakers worked on the movement for two whole years. After thorough laboratory testing of its suitability for everyday use, it can now proudly bear IWC's own seal of quality: "Probus Scafusia" – "good, solid craftsmanship from Schaffhausen".

IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN CELEBRATES THE TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL®

The Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015” makes a grand entrance with this edition as an example of classically beautiful watchmaking at its finest. With outstanding mechanical features, including the Pellaton winding system, 8-day power reserve, and date display, it demonstrates award winning qualities. Its IWC-manufactured 59210-caliber movement will run precisely and reliably for a full 192 hours, or 8 days, before it automatically stops. The power remaining can be read on the power reserve display on the dial between “8 o’clock” and “9 o’clock.” Together with the small seconds display at “6 o’clock” and the date display at “3 o’clock,” this gives the dial a pleasing equilibrium. The dial is a crisp slate color that embodies the New York City streets, while the small seconds subdial is Bordeaux-colored, symbolizing the red carpets, a glamorous mainstay of the film industry often visible around the world from film premieres to award shows. The see-through case back bears the logo of the Tribeca Film Festival, and the lettering ONE OUT OF 100 is a reminder that only very few watch lovers will be able to secure this extra-special edition.
