A particular highlight is hidden on the back of the watch: the gold-plated oscillating weight of the automatic winding mechanism in the form of a rabbit.
The Portugieser Automatic 40 Edition “Chinese New Year” (Ref. IW358315) is limited to 500 pieces and features a 40-millimetre stainless steel case, a burgundy dial, and gold-plated hands and appliques. Burgundy is a charming variation of the bright red colour typically used to welcome the New Year in China. Red symbolises longevity, happiness, and success. It is also believed to bring good luck.
A glance at the IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre through the transparent sapphire case back reveals the true highlight of this edition: the gold-plated rotor in the form of a rabbit. Efficiently converting the movements on the wearer’s arm into energy for the mainspring, the automatic Pellaton winding system builds up a power reserve of 60 hours. In addition, the case back ring displays the engraving “2023 YEAR OF THE RABBIT.” The Portugieser Automatic 40 Edition “Chinese New Year” is delivered with two calfskin straps: one in black, the other with a burgundy colour gradation.
