In the Portofino Hand-Wound Eight Days, the IWC-manufactured 59210-calibre movement will run precisely and reliably for a full 192 hours, or 8 days, before it automatically stops. Strictly speaking, it is 9 days, but the extra day in reserve ensures that the movement maintains as constant a driving torque as possible and continues to run precisely. The owner will always be on the safe side if he winds his watch once a week. The power remaining can be read off on the power reserve display on the dial. Together with the small seconds display and date display, this gives the dial a pleasing equilibrium. The indexless balance has a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour and, together with the Breguet spring bent into shape in accordance with age-old watchmaking tradition, helps to make the watch exceptionally accurate. The watch is available with an 18K red gold case, slate-colored dial and solid gold indices. It has a transparent sapphire-glass back and a dark brown alligator leather strap from the House of Santoni.

Give your watch a quick check on a regular basis, wiping down the face and bracelet with a soft cloth, checking the leather on a strap, and making sure that the strap or bracelet is firmly attached to the watch face. Also, while many watches are water resistant, few are truly waterproof, so if you find that moisture or dust has penetrated the case of your watch, bring it into your local Ben Bridge store where we can have one of our watchmakers clean it out for you.

Our best advice on watch maintenance is to never attempt do-it-yourself repairs, no matter how handy you are or how good the instructions are on Youtube. Watches are super complex little machines and only an expert watchmaker should be trusted to get a watch back into working condition. Attempts by an untrained repair person may seriously damage the watch and can even invalidate factory warranties.

In general, having your watch checked regularly by your Personal Jeweler or watchmaker and serviced according to the manufacturer's guidelines should keep it in excellent shape.
