Speaking of IWC today, I have to mention its founder: Floren Arliotos Jones. This genius invented and created the famous Jones movement in 1868, which has a landmark significance for the later development history of IWC. Today, IWC’s development momentum is as good as rainbow, and it also has a decisive position in the watch world, but IWC has not forgotten the founder Jones, who was once famous, and finally produced the IWC544W watch to pay tribute to it. Today, the editor will just say a few words on this watch.
IWC limited edition Portuguese F. A. Jones Limited Edition IW544203 watch
IWC Portugal series IW544203 watch with a classic design, showing respect for Portuguese F.A Jones. Continuing the brand’s large watch style, the diameter of this watch reaches 43 mm. The name of ‘FA Jones’ is engraved on the dial of the watch at 12 o’clock, which expresses the special meaning of the watch at one time. In addition, it is specially used The classic and elegant Breguet hand is used as the hour hand and minute, and is made of blue steel, full of sense of the times. The edge of the case is specially marked with an independent number. The polished round case and curved lugs present a superior sense of technology. The strap is made of dark brown crocodile leather, adding a retro taste.
As a tribute to Jones, it uses the cal.38290 manual-winding movement, which is the most classic full-bridge pocket watch movement in the history of IWC. This movement is now the IWC 982 movement. First ancestor, this movement adopts the entire splint design, which is more stable and easy to finish than the multi-splint design of common watches.
Summary: The six basic movements developed by Jones are all handmade. This watch also pays tribute to it. While inheriting the classics, it also gives more modern colors, such as fashionable and dynamic elements blended into the charm of classic elegance. Watches are also the minimalist line that the brand has always adhered to, making many capable men’s hearts.
