DescriptionThe IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Moon Phase Ref. IW516409 stands as a testament to the legacy of IWC Schaffhausen, an epitome of luxury and precision. Encased in 18 ct 5N gold, it exudes a warm, rich hue that speaks of timeless elegance. The watch measures a bold 45.0 mm in diameter, ensuring a prominent and distinguished presence on the wrist. This grandeur is complemented by the refined blue alligator leather strap crafted by Santoni, adding a touch of sophistication to its overall appearance. The watch is not just a visual treat but also a marvel of craftsmanship, boasting a see-through sapphire glass back that offers a glimpse into its intricate workings.

Delving deeper into its mechanics, the watch features the IWC-manufactured 59800 calibre movement. This manual-winding mechanism, with its impressive 192-hour power reserve, ensures that the watch keeps ticking for eight days straight, a feature that resonates with the reliability and longevity that IWC stands for. The movement comprises 232 components and 30 jewels, each meticulously assembled to ensure flawless functioning. One of the most striking features of this timepiece is its moon phase display. Not just an aesthetic delight, this feature is a technical achievement, diverging from the actual moon phase by only one day every 577.5 years. This precision is a testament to IWC's commitment to combining artistry with technical excellence. The watch's sapphire glass is arched-edge and treated with an antireflective coating on both sides, enhancing readability and durability. The Côtes de Genève decoration on the movement adds an extra layer of refinement, visible through the transparent back.

IW516409, from its robust build to its elegant design and precise functionality, reflects the brand's dedication to excellence in watchmaking.
