IWC Watch is one of my preferred timepieces. The new IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic has an 18-carat red gold case and a silver-plated dial. It is fitted with a hand-finished brown alligator leatherstrap (Ref. IW390301). Two models are available with a stainless-steel case and a black alligator leather strap. One features a silver-plated dial and blue hands and appliques (Ref. IW390302), while the other has a midnight blue dial and rhodium-plated hands and appliqués (Ref. IW390303).
The technical components of these luxury watches are still driven by the 89361 calibre with flyback function, self-winding system and a power reserve of 68 hours. The recorded time is particularly easy to read on the combined hour and minute counter at “12 o’clock”. A see-through sapphire-glass back provides a view of the movement and the rotor, which is adorned with Geneva stripes.
