History
IWC as a brand was founded in the 1800's and is now known worldwide for its complicated yet elegant timepieces. An integrated manufacturer, the company both creates and assembles all parts of its watches in-house. The force behind the anti-gravity and anti-magnetic movements, IWC has made a place for itself when it comes to making technological advancements. Over the years, the brand has built a dedicated following and become a force to reckon with.
Collection
The IW390403 belongs to the Portuguese Chronograph Classic series which has a history dating back to the 1930's. This watch came into being when the need for a timepiece as precise as a marine chronometer was felt. The outcome was a 43mm pocket watch in a hunter style case. Appreciated for its dapper style, the timepiece has since become a favorite with watch lovers.
Design
The model sports a round case made of 18 carat rose gold that measures 42 mm in diameter and 14.5 mm in thickness. The strap is made in brown alligator leather with a tang buckle. The case back is transparent and the case flaunts finely brushed edges and a polished slim bezel. Fitted with 38 jewels, the dial is silver in colour with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and elegantly polished Arabic markers and hands in rose gold.
Features
The IW390402 is equipped with an automatic chronograph movement, a stopwatch function and IWC calibre 89361. Having a power reserve of 68 hours, the watch boasts of being water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters. It also features black printed minutes and fractions of a second track along with an automatic date function located at the 3 o’clock position. This timepiece exhibits two sub-dials; one that covers both as a 60-minute and 12-hour counter and a seconds counter.

Features
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.


Events
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.


Associations
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.

An elite watch from the Portuguese family, this watch is similar to its sibling, the 3714 reference Portuguese chronograph albeit differing in case size, lug size and in-house movement. This Portuguese Chronograph Classic has a slight edge in terms of size, its 18 carat red-gold case and lugs are marginally larger than your average Portuguese. Its in-house 89361 is more complex than that of the 3714 reference making it a more valuable piece. Its silver-plated dial contrasts the red-gold in a way only a painting could. Featuring a flyback function and water resistance up to 30 meters this watch is resplendent with its aged wine like dark brown alligator leather Santoni strap.
