IWC Schaffhausen celebrates its partnership with the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival by unveiling a special edition watch, the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015.”
The timepiece is an exceptional tribute to the renowned New York-based festival, to be produced in a limited number of 100 and exclusively available for purchase in IWC boutiques within the US.
The Portofino HandWound Eight Days Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015” makes a grand entrance with this edition as an example of classically beautiful watchmaking at its finest. With outstanding mechanical features, including the Pellaton winding system, 8day power reserve, and date display, it demonstrates award winning qualities.
Its IWC manufactured 59210 caliber movement will run precisely and reliably for a full 192 hours, or 8 days, before it automatically stops. The power remaining can be read on the power reserve display on the dial between “8 o’clock” and “9 o’clock.” Together with the small seconds display at “6 o’clock” and the date display at “3 o’clock,” this gives the dial a pleasing equilibrium.
The dial is a crisp slate color that embodies the New York City streets, while the small seconds subdial is Bordeaux-colored, symbolizing the red carpets, a glamorous mainstay of the film industry often visible around the world from film premieres to award shows.
The see-through case back bears the logo of the Tribeca Film Festival, and the lettering ONE OUT OF 100 is a reminder that only very few watch lovers will be able to secure this extra-special edition.
In addition to the Portofino HandWound Eight Days Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015,” IWC has produced a world premiere to honour the festival and to support the Tribeca affiliated non-profit organization, Tribeca Film Institute: the Portofino Monopusher Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015” Unique Piece (Ref.
