The Portofino Hand-Wound Tourbillon Rétrograde (Ref. IW516501) is the first IWC Portofino model to feature a tourbillon, with the balance, pallet and escape wheel mounted in a cage that rotates around its own axis once every minute. This constant rotation helps to counteract the pull of gravity so that it does not adversely affect the watch’s rate and accuracy.
