現在はポルトギーゼにラインナップされている、IWCのスポーツウォッチであるヨットクラブです。

ジェラルド・ジェンタによるデザインの樽型ケースは防水機能とショックアブソーバーを備えており日常使いに適したモデルです。

防水性を示す魚のマークが入ったリューズ(通称:お魚リューズ)もポイントです。

飽きのこない時計って何かと聞かれたら、最大のポイントはシンプルなことですね。

文字盤やケースのデザイン、カラー、サイズ。すべてがシンプルな時計は、大げさでは無く、一生使える時計になります。

そのシンプルを極めた中でもこのヨットクラブはジェラルド・ジェンタデザインによって「艶」や「色気」が感じられます。

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ムーブメントです。

この時計のムーブメント Cal.8541BはCal.854をベースにデイト表示を加えたCal.8541の改良版。

シルバーダイアルは経年によりクリーム色に変化しており、ヴィンテージならではの味わいを感じられます。

購入当時のタグ、保証書も付属しており、1970年に香港で購入されたということが記載されています。

この年代のIWCで40年近く前の販売時の付属品が残っているのは非常に稀ですので、しっかりと保管されていたことが分かります。

ドイツ国境に近いシャフハウゼンに本拠地を置くIWCならではの質実剛健さ、ジェラルド・ジェンタによる美しく実用的なデザインが共存した1本です。

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.
