In­ge­nieur Chrono­graph Edi­tion “Lewis Hamil­ton” & In­ge­nieur Chrono­graph Edi­tion “Nico Ros­berg”

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - 好时光 WATCH OUT -

To­gether with its brand am­bas­sadors and race-win­ning For­mula One driv­ers Nico Ros­berg and Lewis Hamil­ton, IWC Schaffhausen has de­vel­oped two spe­cial edi­tion watches, each limited to 250 pieces. The In­ge­nieur Chrono­graph Edi­tion “Lewis Hamil­ton” has a dis­tinctly tech­ni­cal ap­peal, while the In­ge­nieur Chrono­graph Edi­tion “Nico Ros­berg” is lighter and sportier in ap­pear­ance. The main aim of the col­lab­o­ra­tion was to equip the Mercedes AMG Petronas team­mates with per­son­alised watches. The rugged time­pieces in ti­ta­nium with a satin fin­ish are equipped with one of the most ef­fi­cient move­ments man­u­fac­tured en­tirely by IWC, the 89361 cal­i­bre. Spe­cially de­vel­oped for this move­ment de­sign, the IWC dou­ble-pawl wind­ing sys­tem is one of most ef­fi­cient drives used in haute hor­logerie move­ments from IWC. The up­per to­taliser dis­plays clocked hours and min­utes as clearly as the time of day. Stopped times up to one minute are mea­sured by the cen­tral seconds hand. Another prac­ti­cal fea­ture for any­one who fre­quents the world’s rac­ing cir­cuits is the fly­back func­tion for mea­sur­ing pitstop times. To the de­light of many watch lovers, the 2014 Portofino col­lec­tion sees the re­turn of the most beau­ti­ful of all func­tions — the moon phase dis­play. With a mod­er­ately sized 37mm case, wa­ter resistant to 3 bar, the Portofino Mid­size Au­to­matic Moon Phase also has the ideal di­men­sions for a more slen­der wrist. The hands and moon phase dis­play are pow­ered by the 35800 cal­i­bre au­to­matic move­ment. The phase of the moon shown in the dis­play can be ad­justed us­ing a cor­rec­tion but­ton at 2 o’clock. The Portofino Mid­size Au­to­matic Moon Phase and the Portofino Mid­size Au­to­matic Day & Night are two ra­di­ant 37mm beau­ties avail­able in seven dif­fer­ent ver­sions. The Portofino Mid­size Au­to­matic Moon Phase in white gold is the flag­ship of the new Mid­size col­lec­tion. The dial is the first in IWC’s his­tory to fea­ture sev­eral metic­u­lously ap­plied coats of jet-black lac­quer, which pro­vide a stun­ning back­drop to the pure white di­a­monds.
