Breakthrough in technology made by IWC in recent years should not be underestimated, such as Portuguese series which was close connected with high-tech and then IWC paid much attention and efforts on the Portuguese series IW502308, particularly on its movement which has several complicated functions on that little tight space, which has fully reflected IWC’s delicate techniques. 500 limited edition of steel IW502308 attracted IWC’s fans.
IWC defines itself as a graceful time indicator, and that is irresistible as 44.2 mm diameter of its dial, glaring bezel and brown bracelet appear to be so harmonious and classic. That would definitely give us a sense of elegance of style.
The white setting on the dial is quite similar to the Jaeger-LeCoultre because it places calendar aperture on the seven and eight o’clock where nothing can affect your reading. The different between them is vivid time scale, the feel that young men pursues. In addition to the perpetual calendar, there is a 7 days power reserve indicator, which is a other strength.
After being processed with polishing techniques and branded with the logo, IWC has an exhilarating appearance with a little gentle style. The thickness of the bezel reached an amazing 15.5 mm which indicates it is a BIG watch.
The edge of the case is quite thin but that gives us an overall view of 51613 automatic winding movement. The hollow-out rotor has a 18k golden badge which is branded with Probus Scafusia that means the extraordinary techniques and excellent skills.
Clasp and bracelet
Brown bracelet made of alligator skin is quite different from what we have seen before and it is different in the surface texture instead of the difference in the shape. Irregular round shape is more close to nature. The matched steel clasps have the same brand as you can see in the rotor.
