THE PORTUGIESER CHRONOGRAPH STORY The Portugieser Chronograph is one of IWC Schaffhausen_s most iconic models. With its compact diameter of 41 millimetres, it fits almost any wrist. However, the thin bezel gives one the impression of wearing a significantly larger watch. The clear, functional dial boasts applied Arabic numerals and slender Feuille hands. Printed with a quarter-second scale, the characteristic r_haut not only allows precise reading of the stop time but also reminds us of the Portugieser_s origins as a nautical precision instrument for the wrist. This model features an 18 carat 5N gold case, a slate-coloured dial, as well as golden hands and appliqu_s; it is fitted with a black alligator leather strap. Inside the sporty-elegant chronograph, the IWC-manufactured 69355 calibre is at work. The robust and precise chronograph movement in classic column-wheel design is visible through a sapphire-glass case back.
