An ideal example of timeless elegance, this is IWC’s most successful models due to its classic design and effortless style.
The round silver plated dial is housed in a stainless steel case. Gold toned hour hands point towards Arabic numerals of the same shade. The fixed stainless steel bezel is smooth and the strap has been crafted with black alligator leather. The time piece has a case size diameter of 42.3 mm and a case height of 14 mm. The dial has been constructed with a convex sapphire glass along with an anti- reflective coating on both sides.
The time teller has been powered with a mechanical movement along with a pellaton winding and has a power reserve of 7 days when fully wound. The dial has a power reserve display counter at 3 o’ clock and a small seconds sub- dial at 9 o’ clock. There is even a date display window at 6 o’ clock. The case back has been crafted with a transparent sapphire glass that helps in revealing the movement of the time teller.
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.
