Founded for the first time in the 1800s, IWC has always been known for its uniquely designed watches. Making a number of technological advancements, the brand has over time become a name to reckon with. Apart from being an integrated manufacturer, the brand has also been greatly involved in developing anti-gravity and anti-magnetic movements. Belonging to the Portuguese Chronograph Classic series, the IW390404 is the latest addition to this range of watches. The series has a history dating back to the 1930s and has, over time, developed a dedicated fan following among those having a refined taste in watches.

The IW390404 sports a stainless steel case with a transparent case back. Its gray dial is covered in scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and is fitted with a black alligator leather strap with a deployant clasp. The strap is made by the famous leather manufacturer, Santoni. The watch's case is 42 mm in diameter and 14.5 mm in thickness with finely brushed edges and a slim bezel. The Ardoise dial has a fine sunray finish with polished Arabic hour markers. The leaf-shaped hour and minute hands are surrounded by white printed minutes and a seconds track along the inner circumference of the dial.

The timepiece is fitted with the IWC Calibre 89361 movement and has a power reserve of 68 hours when fully wound. Flaunting 38 jewels, it features an automatic date function located at the 3 o’clock position in the dial. The watch has two sub-dials, one at the 12 o’clock position which doubles both as a 12-hour counter and a 60-minute counter, and a seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. It is water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters.

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.
