IWC - Portugieser Tourbillon Hand-Wound Edition D. H. Craig

| No comment
The Portugieser Tourbillon Hand Wound model is now available in a new variation dedicated to Daniel Hastings Craig, the uncle of Florentine Ariosto Jones who founded the International Watch Company in Schaffhausen in 1868.

Craig was a successful businessman and offered financial support when his nephew established his Swiss watchmaking company to produce high-quality pocket watch movements for the US market. As a tribute to his uncle, Jones decided to inscribe the name "D.H. Craig" on the top plate of some of his top quality movements.

Marking the centenary of the death of F. A. Jones, the new Portugieser Tourbillon Hand-Wound Edition "D. H. Craig" (ref. IW546306) will be exclusively available from IWC boutiques and authorized retailers in the United States and will be produced in just 27 pieces, a number that stands for the age of Jones when he founded the brand.



This model is characterised by a silverplated dial with black hands and numerals, all framed by a 43 mm red gold case nicely matched to a top-quality black alligator leather strap by Santoni. The signature of F. A. Jones appears at 3 o'clock.


The timepiece is driven by the IWC-manufactured hand-wound 98900 calibre with a 54-hour power reserve.

The minute tourbillon at 9 o’clock eliminates the influence of gravity on the balance, ensuring a high level of precision in combination with a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour.


The price of the IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Hand-Wound Edition "D. H. Craig" is US$ 57,000.

The Portugieser Tourbillon Hand-Wound is available in three other variations: ref. IW546301 in white gold with slate-grey dial, ref. IW546302 in red gold with silver dial and red gold hands and numerals, and the "Metropolitan Boutique Edition" ref. IW546304 produced in 50 pieces in red gold with an unusual olive coloured dial. iwc.com
