At the Schaffhausen-based watchmaking house, form and function must be balanced in perfect harmony – a skill that often involves careful decisions made about the type of material used for each timepiece, the shape of the design and the way the watch feels in the hand. Stainless steel is the most common used material in IWC watches. Its robust and resilient nature helps to provide ultimate protection when it comes to shielding the many in-house developed movements fitted at the heart of these watches from factors such as shock, heat, denting and water damage. As official stockists of steel IWC watches here at Berry’s, our compelling collections span from the likes of the popular IWC Portugieser watch, to the supreme IWC Pilot’s tool. With so many benefits to adding a stainless steel timepiece to your watch collection, mixing and matching it with a different outfit every day soon becomes an effortless thing. The magnificent lustre of a stainless steel mechanical wristwatch will compliment a multitude of different dial finishes, together with classic black leather straps, or the more refined steel bracelet for more formal occasions. We invite you to take a thorough look throughout our stainless steel IWC watch collection, and seek advice from a member of our friendly web team should you have further questions on any one of our designs.
The IWC Portofino Chronograph watch is a wonderful example of how the Maison manages to team a sleek and stylish dial with a traditional-looking band for securing around the wrist. The snug fitting Milanese bracelet is crafted from fine links which help to enhance IWC Schaffhausen’s passion for Italian beauty. The elegant timepiece takes inspiration from 1960’ designs, and sports polished chronograph push buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock on a 42mm steel bezel. The chronograph dials offer hours, minutes and seconds facilities, whilst the tried and tested self-winding 75320 calibre ensures an impressive 44 hour power reserve. This steel IWC watch is perfect for those gentlemen who like their timepiece to remain technical-looking whilst also nodding to those traditional methods of watch manufacture that IWC consider so important to their success.
The IWC Da Vinci Automatic watch is a stainless steel instrument for the elegant lady to enjoy. A beautiful polished 36mm bezel frames a classic silver dial decorated with Arabic numerals around the hour track. The “IWC Schaffhausen” lettering applied to the centre of the dial is presented in a stunning rose gold hue to match the other remaining elements of the dial such as the central hands and the indexes. A circular date window is situated at 6 o’clock, taking the place of the sixth numeral, whilst a beautiful blue steeled second hand adds detail to the design. As far as stainless steel IWC watches go, no design better communicates the manufacturer’s dedication to quality and precision, like this member of the Da Vinci collection.
Lastly, those gentlemen looking for a somewhat technical timepiece, the IWC Portugieser Chronograph is crafted from stainless steel and makes no compromises on the quality of its in-house developed movement – the A79350 calibre, which sits inside this construction, beating away at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The classic steel IWC watch promises a useful 44 hour power reserve and features sub-scales at 12 and 6 o’clock offering 30 minutes and 60 seconds functions respectively.
