History
Since its inception in the 1800s, IWC has been known for making consistent advancements in the technological sphere of the watchmaking industry. The IW390403 model belongs to the Portuguese Chronograph classic series. Back in the 1930s, the series was born when the need for a watch as precise as a marine chronometer was felt. It culminated into the development of a pocket watch movement fitted in a hunter style case. The IWC Portuguese Chronographs have, over the years, developed a dedicated following amongst watch enthusiasts.


Design
The IW390403 sports a stainless steel case with finely brushed edges and a polished bezel. The case is 42 mm in diameter and 14.5 mm in thickness. The fine sunray brushed silver dial features polished Arabic hour markers and is covered with a sapphire crystal glass that is scratch-resistant and a case back that is transparent. The timepiece is fitted with a strap made of black alligator leather made by the famous leather manufacturer, Santoni. It is attached with a deployant clasp for safe fastening. Equipped with mildly recessed sub-dials that are finished with finely engraved concentric patterns, the watch flaunts polished leaf-shaped hour and minute hands that lend elegance to the timepiece.


Features
The watch is fitted with an automatic movement and is water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters. It also features an automatic date function located at the 3 o’clock position and two sub-dials; one that acts as both a 60-minute and 12 hour counter, and a seconds sub-dial. Having a power reserve of 68 hours, the timepiece flaunts 38 jewels and is equipped with an IWC Calibre 89361 movement.

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.
