With the introduction of the Portugieser collection, IWC has emerged as a globally renowned haute horlogerie watch making brand. The watches in this family are a perfect amalgamation of eye-catching designs, high-quality elements, and unparalleled time precision. The smoothly curved, sophisticated designs are fashioned to complement the fine contours of the cases, making for an irresistible appeal.
This classic timepiece from IWC, is complemented by the 18K rose gold polished case and bezel, that has fine brushed edges and lugs. The silver toned dial is embossed with elevated rose gold Arabic numeral hour markers and dot minute markers. Further beautifying the dial, are its elegant leaf shaped toned rose gold hands nestled at the centre of the dial. The luxe dial is etched out with extensive detailing, such as a day and date display window that opens up at the outer perimeter of the 9 o’clock sub-dial, whereas the window indicating the month is placed at the 6 o’clock position of the dial. The aesthetic dial also carries a moon-phase designing along with a blue rotating disc placed at the 12 o’clock position. There is also a power reserve indicator placed at the centre of the date sub-dial at the 3 o’clock position. Despite carrying enormous details, the beauty of the dial remains unblemished.
The Swiss-made IWC Portuguese IW502306 timepiece for men, is driven by an automatic movement, the Calibre 51613 that beats at 21,600 vph. The watch is made water resistant up to a mark of 30 metres, which means that the watch will remain protected against accidental water splashes. The watch is also powered with an impressive power reserve of 7 days. Not to be forgotten, the scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass case, which safeguards the dial of this exquisite timepiece from unwanted scratches and damages. Containing 62 jewels, this watch is surely a masterpiece that will win you over.
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.
