Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen celebrates the world of filmmaking for the third year as the Official ‘Festival-Time’ Partner of the Tribeca Film Festival®in New York. To honor the festival and support its non profit affiliate, Tribeca Film Institute (TFI), IWC will auction a unique timepiece – the Portofino Monopusher Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015” Unique Piece – and therewith introduces a new complication to the company’s watch collection portfolio.
As a way of supporting the film industry, its vital young talent, and local storytelling, IWC will again make a donation to Tribeca Film Institute, the nonprofit affiliate of the Tribeca Film Festival, through an auction of a unique timepiece, the Portofino Monopusher Edition “TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015” Unique Piece (Ref. IW515105).
The watch will be auctioned by Christie’s during an online only auction from April 1 to April 10, and the entire proceeds will go to support Tribeca Film Institute. The exceptional auction package also includes exclusive VIP access to the Tribeca Film Festival, an invitation to the “For the Love of Cinema” private dinner hosted by IWC Schaffhausen, as well as luxury hotel accommodation in New York City.
When it is pushed a third time, all the chronograph hands are reset to zero. The chronograph records times of up to 60 minutes. This newly developed feature is an invaluable addition to IWC’s in-house movements and to the Portofino range. In addition to this, a movement that boasts a power reserve of 192 hours – or precisely 8 days – will no doubt be a source of pleasure to future owners looking to own a piece of movie magic. The timepiece also features a white gold case set against a slate-colored dial with Bordeaux subdials. As in years past, the subdials’ hue is inspired by Hollywood’s iconic red carpet, while the slate colored dial is inspired by the streets of Tribeca in New York, laden with steel and concrete. The case back bears the logo of the Tribeca Film Festival and the engraved lettering “Unique Piece.” The Portofino Monopusher Edition“TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2015” Unique Piece will be available exclusively through the online auction by Christie’s.
