Strikingly different

IWC Portugieser follow the tradition of precise marine chronometers. Their design is based on these models. IWC already produced this model series 75 years ago. It was above all the accuracy that distinguished the watches at that time, which were a novelty of their time: Similarly accurate watches were only available as voluminous pocket watches. The IWC series was a sensation, which could be realized thanks to a Savonette pocket watch movement. It is considered to be the first "big" wristwatch. It originated in the time of Art Deco, an early period of wristwatches. In the marriage of bracelets and bangles, the first watches had a similar character; they were small and delicate. Most watch cases were rectangular or square. IWC Portugieser were different and set new standards. The round cases in striking and conspicuous size and the reduced dial were clearly different from watches of that time. Until the 1980s, very few examples of this luxury watch were sold. Striking with a touch of luxury and above all a lot of self-confidence is still the motto of the IWC model series Portugieser, which has been relaunched since 1993.

A special edition becomes an evergreen

The 125th anniversary of the company was the decisive factor in bringing this IWC watch family back to life. The name "Portugieser" is new and was the inspiration for the limited special series published for the celebration. This enjoyed great popularity, so that IWC decided to include the Portugieser with always new variants in the fixed IWC assortment. Today's Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph (e.g. reference IW390502) is the most popular model of the series and is one of the best-selling IWC watches.

Mirror of the company history

The Portugieser luxury watch is particularly linked to the history of the Schaffhausen-based IWC company. Recently IWC celebrated its 75th birthday. Considered only by a few enthusiasts of exclusive and unusual watches, the Portugieser developed into one of the best-selling luxury watches in haute horlogerie. The entrance of this IWC watch into the luxury segment is closely linked to the general history of IWC. As a manufacturer of pilot watches and technically precise measuring instruments for aviation and technical institutions, the company only paved the way into haute horlogerie at the end of the 1980s.
