IWC is celebrating the 75th birthday of the Portugieser watch family and, in the Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “75th Anniversary”, provides an extremely attractive reminder of the ur-Portugieser. The red gold model (Reference IW510206) with its silver-plated dial comes in the same colours as its historic predecessor with a company logo virtually identical to the original. The inner chapter ring, the hour indices and Arabic numerals are finished in bold gold-brown and outlined in black. In the stainless-steel version (Reference IW510205), which has a matte black dial, the coloured elements are pale green. The only new feature is the date display at “6 o’clock”, an additional function that is de rigueur in a watch made for the 21st century. In order to preserve the characteristic simplicity of the dial, the power reserve display has been positioned on the movement side of the watch. When fully wound, the IWC-manufactured 59215 calibre provides a reliable source of energy for eight days. The indexless Glucydur®* beryllium alloy balance oscillates at a frequency of 4 hertz or 28,800 beats per hour. The watch is available in a limited edition of 175 in 18-carat red gold and 750 in stainless steel. All models are fitted with exclusive Santoni alligator leather straps.

IWC is based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and was founded in 1868. Its signature lines are the Pilot’s Watches and the Portugieser, while other famous collections are the Aquatimer, Portofino and the Da Vinci. Many of IWC’s designs display a industrial type of beauty not often found in Swiss watchmaking. The same goes for its movements; while of very high standards, they are finished with an … engineers touch rather than that of an artist. One could very well say that IWC’s approach to watchmaking is more German in nature compared to many of its competitors; the ‘form follows function’ adagio is one held in high esteem in Schaffhausen. Notable watches and innovations created by IWC in the past include the digital ‘Pallweber’ pocket watch, the late 1930’s Portugieser, the 1985 Da Vinci with Kurt Klaus perpetual module, the split-seconds mechanism as designed by Richard Habring and the ceramic Da Vinci and Flieger 3705 – introduced many years before the material became fashionable. IWC also pioneered the use of titanium in wristwatches. In recent years, IWC has had a strong focus on in-house movements with prices rising accordingly. IWC is part of the Richemont group.
