SIHH Badge

(Ref. IW510205 and IW510206) is a homage to a version of the original Portugieser that until now has been fairly unknown. Fortunately, an original version of this model had remained in a private collection, and was a source of inspiration for IWC’s designers.

Premiere of the IWC Annual Calendar

 

SIHH Badge

The new Portugieser Annual Calendar brings together two firsts for IWC and three masterstrokes of haute horlogerie in a single case: the newly developed annual calendar closes the gap between the perpetual calendar and the simple date display.

The new IWC-manufactured 52850 calibre has two barrels that keep the new function supplied with ample energy and still has enough left for a 7-day power reserve.

Mechanical movement – Pellaton automatic winding – Power reserve display – Annual calendar with displays for the date, day and month – Small hacking seconds at 9 o’clock – Glucydur®* beryllium alloy indexless balance with high-precision adjustment screws on balance rim – Breguet spring – See-through sapphire-glass back – Rotor with 18-carat gold medallion

 

 

  • IWC-manufactured calibre 52850
  • Power reserve 7 days (168 h)
  • Winding automatic
  • Sapphire crystal, arched edge, antireflective coating on both sides
  • Water-resistant 30metres
  • Diameter 44.2 mm
  • Case height 15.3 mm

Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph

 

SIHH Badge

The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is the sportiest timepiece in a watch family steeped in tradition. At the request of many watch lovers – and to mark the 75th anniversary – the model is now slightly smaller with ergonomically designed strap horns and a new strap. Thanks to several restrained design modifications, the chronograph is now more luxurious and more balanced.

The most important design change in the new Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph (Ref. 3905) is immediately obvious: the case diameter has been reduced from 45.4 to 43.5 millimetres.

Mechanical chronograph movement – Date display – Stopwatch function with hours, minutes and seconds – Hour and minute counters combined in a totalizer at 12 o’clock – Flyback function – Small hacking seconds – See-through sapphire-glass back

  • IWC-manufactured calibre 89361
  • Power reserve 68 h
  • Winding automatic
  • Sapphire crystal, convex, antireflective coating on both sides
  • Screw-in crown, water-resistant 6ometres
  • Diameter 43.5 mm
  • Case height 14.5 mm
