Owing a branded watch is a dream for everyone who has a passion for standards. IWC Schaffhausen’s Portuguese watch is one of the most dreamt watches. The manufacture of watch in Schaffhausen was founded by an American, Florentine Ariosto Jones, in the year 1868. He had an innovative attitude and pioneering guts towards the art of making beautiful watches, and is what helped these Portuguese watches reach this height.
The watches come in various styles. Each style of watch has its family. These families represent various themes. Each of these themes gives a rich and reminiscent illustration to the universe of IWC Schaffhausen.
The first family in this list is the ‘Aquatimer family’. These high quality replica watches can be worn under the water. It is the third generation of the IWC diver’s watch. It comes now with a more discreet look and more subdued color than the preceding generations. The most eye-catching latest development is the case design with the new exterior/interior rotating bezel. It can only be turned anticlockwise, as for the safety reason. This will make certain that even if a diver moves the bezel unintentionally, the time at which he can return securely to the surface that is the zero hour, without the need for decompression stops, is not surpassed.
The second name is the ‘Ingenieur Family’. In 2013, a completely redesigned Ingenieur watch collection was launched with the cooperation of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team. The technical highlight was the Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillion with its original constant-force mechanism. Its case is made up of titanium aluminide, which was inspired by the range of materials used in FORMULA ONE.
The third name is ‘the Da Vinci family’. This is a sort of tribute to one of the greatest genius ever born “Leonardo Da Vinci”. These fake watches are inspired by the technical invention of Da Vinci. They work on the mechanisms suggested by him. IWC wristwatch never had a gear train that converted the humungous distances travelled by the escape wheel into a solitary movement of the century slide. Its obscure mechanism encompasses 83 components and is very easy to use. For the first time in the history of IWC’s watch, the displays for the date, day, month, year, and phase of the moon can all be set synchronously via the crown.
The fourth name is ‘the Pilot’s Watches’. These watches are made exclusively keeping the pilot’s in mind. They come with a rough glass, a rotating bezel with an arrowhead index for keeping track of short intervals of time and an antimagnetic escapement together with high-contrast, glowing hands and numerals.
Then comes the ‘Portofino Family’. These watches give a timeless appeal of the Mediterranean lifestyle. The style and design gives it an elegant look, making it appear like a timepiece of a celebrity from 1960s.
The last name in this list is the “Portuguese family’. These watches are a distant echo from the magnificent history. They unite the tradition of maritime instruments with modern design and forward-looking technicalities.
