Honouring its roots, IWC Schaffhausen presents a special timepiece that infuses the past with the contemporary.

When it comes to history, luxury Swiss watchmaker IWC stands apart from its peers because unlike the others, it was founded by an American, Florentine Ariosto Jones. It is in celebration of this unique heritage that the brand has unveiled the Portugieser Tourbillon Hand-Wound Edition, D. H. Craig USA.

Limited to only 27 pieces – the age Jones started the company – the exquisite new timepiece intriguingly bears the name D. H. Craig USA which is in fact a reference to Jones' uncle and role model: Daniel Hastings Craig. The watch features a red gold case, which houses a silver-plated dial with the intricate tourbillon placed at the 9 o'clock position. Meanwhile, a alligator leather strap, crafted by Santoni, rounds off the stunning timepiece.

The IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Hand-Wound Edition D. H. Craig USA is available exclusively in the US. Now, discover the new Zenith Elite Lady Moonphase duo.
