History
Taking inspiration from the first Portuguese watches of the 1930s, the IWC Portuguese Chronograph collection has traditional and timeless designs. The collection is specifically designed for men who prefer simplicity and elegance in life.  The core idea behind its artistic design is to make it lucid and uncomplicated in its structure. The collection attracts watch lovers from every age group.
 
Design
The IWC Portuguese IW371447 case material is made with Steel, whose size is 40 mm, and is round in shape.   The dial of the watch is black in colour and contrasts beautifully with the steel polished hour markers and the hands of the watch. These hour markers are embedded with Arabic Numerals. The dial of the watch has a 60 second sub-dial located at the 6 o’ clock position, and a 30 minute sub-dial positioned counter to the 12 o’clock. The bezel, lugs and edges of the watch are also steel polished. Whether it is office or a party, this piece is sure to attract the attention from onlookers because of its charismatic design. The IWC Portuguese IW371447 has a clean and unfussy design, which is just perfect for those who favour elegance over opulence.

Features
The glass of the watch is made with scratch resistant Sapphire crystal. This timepiece also serves as a stop-watch with minutes and seconds function, which become useful while you are playing sports or doing any outdoor activity.  The strap of the IWC Portuguese IW371447 is made with black alligator leather, which can be worn comfortably around the wrist. The Swiss made watch is powered with self-winding chronograph movement. The bigger dial, and the black and white contrast, makes time –viewing easy on the eyes. The watch has water resistant mark to a depth of 30 metres, which safeguards it from any accidental splashes of water. The model has an approximate power backup of 44 hours.

 

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.

This contemporary time piece is reminiscent of nautical instruments of yester years, exuding at the same time a certain blend of subtle virility and a not so subtle elegance. Its case height is a pleasant 12.3 mm making it one of the more desirable Portuguese models. Its 79350 calibre is housed in a stainless steel case having a diameter of 40.9 mm. Its stunning black dial is matched by its black alligator leather strap with the stainless steel case forming the perfect foil. Indigenous to the dial are the recessed totalizers, the indented Arabic numerals and the shapely feuille hands for hours and minutes. A poetic and graceful way to measure time.

Out of all the watches that have a chronograph movement, this one is the best. I love IWC.
