Built for longevity, this fashion versatile luxury piece is sturdy yet comfortable to wear. The case is constructed with a premium grade stainless steel. Its face, as well as the case back’s display are shielded with a scratch resistant convex sapphire glass that is enhanced with an anti-reflective coating for an optimum clarity. Its soft yet supportive genuine leather bracelet conveniently fasten deployment buckle clasp. Meanwhile, its whole construction itself is 30 m water resistant for practical sake.

As a premium Swiss mechanical timepiece, this IWC IW500114 Portuguese’s main charm is of course the one that lays inside, the IWC caliber 51010 that has 44 functional jewels, is adjusted to five positions. A reliable, highly accurate self-winding automatic movement that beats at 3 Hz, and provides an extended seven days of power reserve. Aesthetic wise, you’ll find that its rotor that is equipped with a 18 carat yellow gold medallion featuring the brand’s signature can be clearly seen through the transparent exhibition case back.

The watch’s silver dial is simple with a neat layout that makes it easy to read. Smoothly moving atop its bright White background are gold-tone hands that point to golden Arabic numeral hour marker with gold-tone dots over, accompanied by small seconds sub-dial at nine, power reserve indicator sub-dial at three, and a legible date window at six. All the setting and adjustment can be easily done via its fluted pull and push crown that proudly wears the Probus Scafusia logo at the right hand side.
