IT NEEDS WINDING JUST ONCE A WEEK

In 2013, the 59000-calibre family made its entry into the Portuguese family. After further development, the IWC-manufactured 59215 calibre reliably supplies the watch with energy for a full 8 days. For many watch lovers, winding the Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days is both a fixed weekly ritual and a physical pleasure. The actual power reserve is a full 9 days, but an intelligent blocking device restricts the power reserve to the first 192 hours, when the tension in the mainspring remains at its most regular. The Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days leans heavily on the purist design of the original Portuguese in the 1930s: arched-edge front glass, railway-track-style chapter ring and feuille hands together with a small seconds dial at “6 o’clock”. To retain the characteristic symmetry and simplicity of the dial, the designers positioned the power reserve display on the watch’s movement side, which is decorated with Geneva stripes and can be seen through the transparent sapphire glass. The Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days is available in 18-carat red gold with a silver-plated dial or in stainless steel with a silver-plated or black dial. All models are supplied with a fine-quality alligator leather strap from the House of Santoni.

For watch lovers, winding the Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days once a week is a ritual to look forward to. The IWC-manufactured 59215-calibre movement provides the watch with energy for a full eight days. The movement would actually continue running for nine days, but an intelligent blocking device limits run time to the first 192 hours, when the tension in the mainspring is at its most regular.
