    IWC presented the exquisite Portuguese Minute Repeater Squelette wristwatch at the SIHH in 2004. The watch features a finely crafted skeletonised dial that highlights the functional beauty of the minute repeating mechanism. The chapter ring at the outer edge is minimised, which helps the wearer to capture the quintessence of the gongs and hammers of the repeating mechanism. The present watch was produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces only.
