The Portuguese Automatic Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2013”, whose timeless elegance is matched by its technical perfection, makes a grand entrance as an example of classically beautiful watchmaking at its finest. With outstanding mechanical features, including the Pellaton winding system, 7-day power reserve, and date display, it demonstrates that greatness is not only a question of size. The 50000-caliber family of large IWC-manufactured movements was originally developed for the Portuguese Automatic to mark the start of the new millennium, and once again featured the Pellaton winding system and 7-day power reserve. The movement subsequently received a date display, which has made the Portuguese more practical for everyday use. With its small seconds display at “9 o’clock” and its power reserve display on the opposite side of the dial at “3 o’clock” – both claret-colored –, the special edition commemorating the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival sets the tone for a spectacular event. The hands, numerals, and hour markers set against the slate-colored dial are rhodium plated, and the see-through sapphire-glass back provides an unimpeded view of the fascinating movement. The 18-carat gold medallion bears the logo of the Tribeca Film Festival and the milled lettering “One out of 100” is a reminder that only very few watch lovers will be able to secure this extra-special edition. The Portuguese Automatic Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2013” will be available exclusively from official IWC retailers in the USA.
The 50000-calibre family represents a wide range of different movements that have one thing above all in common: their unmistakably large dimensions. They feature some of the best ideas ever to appear in an automatic movement (among them the legendary Pellaton winding system) together with a balance and Breguet spring for maximum precision. Apart from this, the IWC 50000-calibre family with its 7-day power reserve represents a giant leap forward in the history of automatic movements: 1,960 complete revolutions of the rotor wind the movement for a full 7 days.
