The IWC Portuguese watch collection owe their genesis to the two Portuguese businessmen, who in the late 1930s, ordered wristwatches with the precision of marine chronographers. The IWC took up this challenge and created an unbelievable wristwatch with numerals, hands, and totalizer spectacularly blended into the diligently crafted dial. The collection, exclusively designed for men, is an exquisite blend of innovative features and intricate design patterns.
The IWC Portuguese IW371446 case material is round shaped, and is made of steel, whose size is 40 mm. The slim bezel ring, lugs and edges of the watch are polished with finesse. The silver polished dial of the watch provides this timepiece with a rich look. The beautifully designed hands of the watch, and the dial embedded with Arabic numeral hour markers, polished with blue steel, enhance the look of this timepiece. The dial of the watch has a 60 second sub-dial located at the 6 o’ clock position, and 30 minute sub-dial positioned counter to the 12 o’clock position. Whether it is an official event or an unofficial one, the watch is bound to capture everyone’s imagination. The IWC Portuguese IW371446 has a neat and uncomplicated design, which is perfect for those who not only desire a timepiece, but an art piece with an unfading glamour.
The glass material of the watch is made with Sapphire crystal, that safeguards the dial from any accidental scratches. This timepiece serves as a stop-watch with minutes and seconds’ sub-dial functionality. The strap of the IWC Portuguese IW371446 is made with blue alligator leather and can be wrapped comfortably on the wrist. The Swiss made watch is powered with automatic self-winding movement. The bigger dial and its anti- reflexive glass make time reading easy on the eyes. This watch has a water resistant mark to a depth of 30 metres that makes the watch strong enough to withstand accidental splashes of water. The model has an approximate power reserve of 44 hours.
The late 1930s was a pioneer calendar year for the IWC Portugieser watch collection. When two Portuguese businessmen ordered wristwatches with the precision of marine chronometers, IWC Schaffhausen decided to rise up to the challenge by creating a then non-existent wristwatch movement with the crown on the right-hand side which would remedy the problem. The Portugieser is a much sought after watch due to its minimalist design and simplistic approach to styling. Most watches consist of an automatic movement while others, in accordance to the pioneer pocket watch models before, require mechanical hand winding.
2015 marks the 75th anniversary of the IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser family, one of the most beloved and prestigious collection of the brand. This year was kick-started with a number of gala affairs in January, the most elaborate of which saw 800 distinguished guests and IWC Schaffhausen at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva. The evening was star-studded with watch enthusiasts and brand ambassadors. Over the past few years, IWC has continually bested its contemporaries by decorating the Portugieser with modernist technology such as the Tourbillon Mystere, the constant force Tourbillon and the 8-day hand wound movement with definitive plans to bring design and efficiency to new heights over the coming years.
English Actress Emily Blunt shares a love for the Portugieser watches that is very much in common with famous Austrian actor, Christopher Waltz. Friends of the brand also include screenwriter and filmmaker Mark Forster, sports legends such as Lewis Hamilton, Nico Roseberg and Luis Figo, all of whom have dedicatedly attended the launches of the new and improved Portugieser watch collection.
