 With the birth of this new complex timepiece, IWC added another chronograph with its own movement to its popular Portofino watch collection. Following the elegant tradition of the Portofino watch family, this new member also exhibits a unique elegance and charming technical subtlety: the most common chronograph watches are currently at ‘2 o’clock’ and ‘4 o’clock There is a button at the ‘clock’, which is also the most classic form of chronograph watch. The Portofino manual winding single-button chronograph watch (models IW515103 / IW515104) stands out with its unique one-button chronograph mechanism and is capable of timing for up to 60 minutes. The timekeeping button is placed in the crown and is almost imperceptible at first glance.

This simple switching mechanism also highlights the aesthetic considerations of watch design, revealing the elegance of the watch. Although the additional function of chronograph has been added, the Portofino manual winding single-button chronograph still retains a simple style, and its various functions are only revealed when you watch the game carefully. Simplicity and low profile are the tradition of the Portofino watch family, and the soul of the Portofino watch’s restrained design and classic style since its birth. Mr. GEORGES KERN, CEO of IWC, commented: ‘This watch maintains the perfect balance of function, design and ease of use. Traditional manual watchmaking technology and modern engineering are seamlessly combined. It’s the birth of this new model of fine watchmaking that we can be proud of. ‘

Precision and complex internal mechanical structure

 The newly developed movement of the Portofino manual-winding single-button chronograph watch is a valuable research and development result for both the IWC’s own movement series and the Portofino series. . The 59360 movement inherits the powerful characteristics of the 59000 movement series, and the mechanical timing device placed therein highlights the outstanding charm. The wearer can enjoy the power reserve of 192 hours. After the watch is fully chained, it can ensure the accurate movement of the whole 8 days until it stops automatically. You can check the remaining power of the watch at any time through the power reserve display on the dial between the ‘8 o’clock’ and ‘9 o’clock’ positions. The small dial at 12 o’clock shows the minutes measured by the chronograph function, while the central hand indicates the seconds. The dial has a small seconds at ‘6 o’clock’ and a date display at ‘3 o’clock’. The overall layout is decent and pleasing. The case back also gives you a panoramic view of the movement: through the sapphire glass case back, the IWC-manufactured movement decorated with Geneva stripes and the mechanical timing device in operation are clearly visible. The Portofino manual winding single-button chronograph is available in two models: a white gold case with a rock grey dial and a grey SANTONI alligator leather strap, or an 18K red gold case with a silver plated dial and brown SANTONI alligator leather Strap.

Exclusive leather for luxury watches

For more than three decades since its birth, the Portofino watch family has always played a pivotal role in the IWC watch series. In order to highlight the unique Italian living style, IWC joined forces with shoe manufacturer SANTONI in 2011. This well-known Italian family business is an outstanding representative of ‘elegance and luxury and top quality’, which is exactly the same as the value concept of IWC. Today, SANTONI crafts leather straps exclusively for IWC. In the complicated processing procedures, each of the carefully manufactured SANTONI straps is given a unique quaint appearance at the factory, and the colors and gloss are also unique. This process makes leather seem like it has been carefully used for many years, but it is actually made entirely new. Another signature feature of SANTONI is the orange leather lining on the inside of the strap. The beauty and glamour of the Mediterranean living atmosphere are blended into the perfect handcraft of watch and strap.

Rich And Precious Tasting Rolex Date Women’s 18k Gold Watch

Rolex watches still give people the feeling of being earthy, but some models have now got rid of this impression, such as the latest new Cellini models. Among them, most of the factors we see are elegant art. Today, the watch home will bring you a brief review of a Rolex diary women’s watch. The image is satisfactory, the official model of the watch. It is: 116243-63603.

   Whether it is a timeless aesthetic element or an excellent function, the log type is a model of classic watches. From an aesthetic point of view, after different years of diary watches, the original aesthetic elements are still retained. And its traditional watch has become one of the most famous and recognizable watches in history.

   The watch is designed with a diameter of 36 mm, the case is made of 18K yellow gold diamonds and stainless steel, and a total of 52 diamonds are set on the bezel.

   The watch uses a double-locked winding crown design. The screw-down winding crown and the screw-down case back of the case are the core of the Oyster watch. Created by Rolex in 1953, the double-locking mechanism ensures that the screw-in crown is completely waterproof, thanks to the two sealed areas inside the round tube and crown. All Oyster models are equipped with this device and are water-resistant to 100 meters.

   The watch strap is a classic Rolex commemorative strap design. The smooth, comfortable wearing commemorative strap consists of five rows of metal links. This strap is specially designed for the Oyster Perpetual Diary, launched in 1945, with a hidden crown buckle.

   This Rolex Date Ladies watch has a well-designed design with a champagne color tone on the dial and a ROLEX print logo on the dial. This dial design is novel and interesting.

   The log type is the world’s first waterproof and automatic winding official identification and timepiece. The date is displayed through a small window on the surface, hence the name. Earlier diary watches have a calendar display that starts switching hours before midnight. The model after 1955 was equipped with a real-time calendar jump mechanism, and the surface display window was equipped with a small window convex lens, which enlarged the calendar display by 2.5 times and was easy to read.

   The diary was born in 1945 and was the first watch with a calendar window on the surface. A few years later, Cyclops eye was added to the crystal surface of the watch, which has since become a symbol of Rolex’s generation. The log type has become a representative of taste style with its classic design.

   The watch is equipped with a 2235 self-winding movement independently developed by Rolex, which is accurate and durable. The Oyster case is an important basis for Rolex’s prestigious reputation and excellent performance. The patented technology secures the outer ring, case back and winding crown to the middle case. Similar to the oyster case, the Rolex Oyster case is also sturdy and sealed, protecting the high-precision permanent magnet from water, sand and pressure.

Summary: The watch is well-designed, with a 36 mm diameter design, a champagne-colored dial with 18K yellow gold diamond case material, which shows the essence of luxury. At present, the price of this watch at the Rolex store in Xidan Shopping Mall in Beijing is 142,500 yuan. RMB. Interested friends can go for more details.
