The pieces in the Ju­bilee Col­lec­tion cap­ture ( FA Jones’) pen­chant and pas­sion for cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion

The Por­tugieser Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar Edi­tion 150 Years (Ref IW503405), on the other hand, is a so­phis­ti­cated spin on one of IWC’s most iconic watches. This time­piece boasts the IWC­man­u­fac­tured 52615 cal­i­bre with an au­to­matic Pel­la­ton wind­ing sys­tem. With a solid gold rotor and two bar­rels, it can eas­ily build up a power re­serve of seven days. The per­pet­ual cal­en­dar mech­a­nism in this watch can recog­nise the lengths of each month, as well as leap years with no need for man­ual ad­just­ment un­til 2100. Like­wise, the dou­ble moon phase dis­play shows the phase and po­si­tion of the moon in both north­ern and south­ern hemi­spheres. It is also a watch that ex­udes time­less el­e­gance thanks to an 18­carat red gold case and a black al­li­ga­tor leather strap by San­toni.

With its re­fined ap­pear­ance, the Portofino Hand­Wound Moon Phase Edi­tion 150 Years (Ref IW516405) is an up­dated take on IWC’s clas­sic Portofino Hand­Wound Moon Phase Eight Days. Housed in a stain­less steel case with an el­e­gant al­li­ga­tor leather strap, it is a watch that makes a rather strong style state­ment. This time­piece fea­tures a blue dial with a lac­quered fin­ish, rhodi­umplated hands, and a moon phase dis­play in sil­ver which makes a strik­ing con­trast to the blue watch­face. Only 350 pieces of this watch have been pro­duced.

For Ram­baud and ev­ery­one at IWC, the Ju­bilee Col­lec­tion stands as a tes­ta­ment to the pas­sion that built the man­u­fac­ture— the same pas­sion that con­tin­ues to drive the com­pany on in the present day.

“To­day, IWC, like its founder, re­mains big on in­no­va­tion,” he says. “Our new lim­ited­edi­tion Ju­bilee Col­lec­tion, which ef­fort­lessly chron­i­cles the story of the com­pany from past to present, is a clear ex­am­ple of that.”
