How the tourbillon in IWC’s Portugieser Constant-Force works

Postby Racer-X » June 24th 2017, 3:59pm

by Charmian Leong "or centuries, watchmakers have been working to eliminate force variations in movements. Because the force or torque that the mainspring delivers as it unwinds is not consistent (it’s higher when the watch is fully wound and diminishes as it winds down), it’s always exciting to see the various ways it has been tackled. One of the latest such attempts to catch our eye is IWC‘s Portugieser Constant-Force Tourbillon."

Hot mess.


I am amazed at the extent to which some of these manufacturers prey on the stupidity of the "well-to-do" when it comes to watches. The target audience has no clue about anything but the price tag.

Foghorn's back to kick ass and chew Metamucil. And he's all outta Metamucil.

I don't dislike much IWC does, but I sure dislike that. Immensely.
