Lot 116 – IWC Portugese Tourbillon Mystere Squelette Wristwatch Limited Series No. 06 of 50

Lot 116 – IWC Portugese Tourbillon Mystere Squelette Wristwatch Limited Series No. 06 of 50
Estimate: INR 40 – 45 lakhs (US$ 56,338 – 63,380)
The Portuguese Tourbillon Mystère Squelette from IWC Schaffhausen is an artistically defined, precision mechanical masterpiece, whose origins can be traced back to centuries past. The Portuguese Tourbillon Mystère Squelette can be perceived entirely as a contemporary interpretation of the original Portuguese watch. However, it is much more than that. It combines the old craft skills of skeletonising, engraving and engine-turning with the tradition of watchmaking, all in perfect refinement. The movement combines the pinnacle of watchmaking, the tourbillon, with the traditional craftsman’s arts of skeletonising, engine-turning and engraving. It is housed in a classic Portuguese case.
An impressive example of the successful combination of the art of the watchmaker and the art of the finisher is the tourbillon, which rotates in a hand-engraved window in the dial of this Portuguese watch. Making it true to its classic role model, IWC engineers have designed a cage that rotates about its own axis once every minute and accommodates the entire escapement with its Breguet balance spring and screw balance. This impressive watch is a timeless representation of a high precision timepiece and amazing craftmanship.
