The Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph Story

Only a few complications in Haute Horlogerie are as fascinating as the tourbillon. The "whirlwind" involves the balance wheel rotating around its axis in a cage. This not only provides a visual spectacle on the dial. The constant rotation reduces the influence of gravity on the oscillation system and increases the accuracy of the timepiece. The Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph features a flying hacking minute tourbillon at "6 o'clock". Additionally, the model is equipped with a retrograde date display and a chronograph with flyback function. Limited to 50 pieces, the case of this watch is made of platinum. The silver-plated dial and the rhodium-plated hands and appliqués harmonise wonderfully with the rare precious metal. The self-winding IWC-manufactured 89900 calibre boasts a power reserve of 68 hours. The pallet lever and escape wheel are treated using Diamond Shell® technology, which reduces friction and improves the flow of energy in the movement.

Calibre Family 89000

Calibre Family 89000

The 89000-calibre family includes powerful chronograph movements with flyback function, which are used, for example, for the big digital date and month displays.

Hacking tourbillon

Hacking tourbillon

Watch lovers are fascinated by the aesthetics of the filigree tourbillon. The hacking tourbillon can be set precisely to the second and thus the entire gear train can be stopped.

Retrograde date display

Retrograde date display

This analogue type of display with a hand and scale gives the wearer a very special feel for the passing of time.
