Comprising 190 meticulously engineered components and 31 jewels, this automatic, self-winding movement boasts a generous 60-hour power reserve and operates at a frequency of 28,800 VPH (4 Hz). It's not just a timekeeping instrument; it's a testament to the mastery of watchmaking. The addition of a small hacking seconds feature enhances accuracy, a vital trait for a watch that represents the passage of time during this auspicious occasion. The see-through sapphire glass back invites you to marvel at the inner workings of this horological masterpiece, revealing the intricate dance of gears and springs that power its movement. With a water resistance rating of 3.0 bar, the IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 Edition "Chinese New Year" is not just a watch; it's a symbol of cultural significance, technical excellence, and timeless craftsmanship.
