Characteristics of IWC Watches
IWC watches are synonymous with American production uniting with masterful Swiss craftsmanship. Through a team of premier Swiss watchmakers, IWC Schaffhausen has built a reputation that utilizes hydropower technology and precision engineering to mold movements to the most preeminent accuracy. For over fifteen decades, IWC has remained dedicated to preserving its longstanding tradition of designing complex yet elegant mechanical timepieces with unvarying designs crafted from ethically sourced materials. From the rugged and refined wristwatches of the Portugieser and Portofino to prominent aeronautics-inspired collections, the Pilot's and Big Pilot's, IWC showcases the complexities of horological mastery.
Popular IWC Watch Collections
During the mid-1930s, IWC embarked on a mission to manufacture the first pilot timepiece for civil aeronautics exploration. The Pilot's collection is expressly vigorous, with a movement resistant to fluctuations in temperatures with anti-magnetic properties, which has anchored the brand to unrivaled technological benchmarks. The dial, renowned for its aesthetic configuration borrowed from the cockpit instruments used in airplanes, has remained the primary characteristic of the collection. Soaring within the 21st century, the Big Pilot's collection meshes its bold and distinguished conical crown from its pioneering days of aviation with innovative functions, powered by the high-performance caliber 5011, that of which; employs a power-reserver of seven days, a perpetual calendar, and arrow-shaped hour, seconds, and small second hands, for impeccable reliability.
Most timeless and renowned, Portugieser timepieces are beloved for the inherited design of its majestic size, classic Arabic numerals painted in precious elements, and slender feuille-shaped hands reminiscent of leaves. This sophisticated collection of in-house manufactured wristwatches utilizes high-complicated movements, employing inspiring functions such as a Bauhaus-inspired double moon-phase display. Tracing back to the 1970s, the Portofino collection’s imposing, humble case configuration remains inspired by the Lépine pocket watch that has remained a staple of this watch family. The uniformly admired collection by men and women dons uncluttered dials with Roman numerals indices, satin-polished hour markers, encased in precious alloys, most notably rose gold.
