IWCのヨットクラブは現在ではポルトギーゼラインの1つとして、スポーツウォッチに属しています。

ヴィンテージのヨットクラブは使い勝手の良いサイズ感、どんな格好やシチェーションでも違和感の無いシンプルなデザインが魅力です。

シンプルを極めたこのラインのケースデザインはジェラルド・ジェンタ。

彼のデザインしたオメガのCラインケースに近い、シャツに引っ掛からない曲線的なデザインは余計なものを削ぎ落としながらも、独特の「艶」や「色気」が感じられます。

この時計の最大の特徴はグリーンマーブル模様のダイアルです。

非常に希少な文字盤で、以前に販売したブルーマーブルよりも見ることが少ないです。

マーブル柄だけを見ると少し目立つかな?と思うかもしれませんが、色合いや明るさ・インデックスを含め主張し過ぎないデザインですので悪目立ちはしないと思います。

カレンダー部分も同様の仕上げというのがこだわりが垣間見えます。

2021年5月のフィリップスオークションに同じグリーンマーブルの時計が出品され、落札されています。

このオークションの出品時にIWCのヘリテージ部門の担当者からこの文字盤が確かに存在した事、文字盤のサプライヤーの実験的なデザインとして作られたため、公式に宣伝、販売はされてはいないという事が明らかになりました。

搭載ムーブメントは自動巻きのCal.8541B。

Cal.854をベースにデイト表示を加えたCal.8541の改良版です。

ムーブメントも効率よくゼンマイを巻き上げ、ヴィンテージの中でも故障も少ないということでかなり信頼性の高いペラトン式。

ペラトン式とは1950年代にIWCの設計部長だった時計師のアルバート・ペラトンによって開発された自動巻き機構のこと。

初めて開発されたCal.85から最終型のCal.854まで基本的な設計は同じというほど完成された機械の最終形です。

ゲイフレアー社製のIWC純正ブレスレットが付属します。(17.5cm程度まで対応可能)

ゲイフレアー(Gay-Frères)はロレックスの初代ブレスレットのサプライヤーで、オーデマ ピゲのロイヤルオークやゼニス エル・プリメロのブレスレットを手掛けたメーカーとして知られています。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
