IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Mystère (white gold)

Portugieser Tourbillon Mystère is a luxury watch by IWC.

The tourbillon is considered the most beautiful and most exclusive complication. IWC has launched in the framework of the Portugieser ("Portuguese") series a watch which, next to the tourbillon, also comes up with a seven-days automatic movement. The automatic movement consists of the strong-winding pellaton system. The watch case is optional from platinum (limited to 50 pieces) or from red gold or white gold (limited to 250).
