More about IWC IW510212 Portugieser Hand Wound Eight Days Edition "150 Years" SS

This is a stainless steel IWC Portuguese Hand Wound Eight Days IW510212. It has a black alligator leather strap made by Santoni, with a matching stainless tang buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with an arched edge and antireflective coating on both surfaces. The 43mm diameter solid three-body case, stepped bezel, and downturned lugs are polished with a brushed midcase. It has a sapphire crystal screwed down display case back and a push/pull-winding crown. The dial is bright white lacquer with applied blued steel Arabic numeral hour markers, a black printed minute track, and feuille leaf shaped blued steel hour & minute hands. There is a subsidiary small seconds dial at the 6 o'clock position, and a date aperture window at 3 o'clock. It's water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet, and the power reserve is a full eight days/192 hours at full wind. The 14mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

This IWC Portuguese Hand Wound Eight Days IW510212 has a mechanical manual winding IWC caliber 59215 movement that's rhodium plated with fausses cotes embellishment. It's constructed with 30 jewels and a shock absorber mechanism. It has a straight-line lever escapement, a monometallic balance that's adjusted to 5 positions, and a self-compensating Breguet balance spring. There is an index regulator, and a skeletonized bidirectional rotor with an engraved IWC logo with "adj to 5 positions," and a poser reserve display on the back.

IWC debuted the IWC Portuguese Hand Wound Eight Days IW5102 in 2013. The actual power reserve is a full 9 days, but a blocking mechanism restricts it to the first 192 hours, when the tension in the mainspring remains is at its most regular. This watch honors the design of the original Portuguese timepieces of the 1930s with an arched-edge crystal, a railway-track-style chapter ring, feuille hands, and a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock. To keep the traditional symmetry of the dial, the power reserve display was positioned on the movement side.

This edition "150 Years" was released at the SIHH fair in 2018 as part of the Jubilee collection to celebrate their 150th anniversary.
