It’s reassuring to know that excellent design is compatible with a practical finish. Swiss luxury watchmaker IWC has designed a wristwatch that is not only elegant but functional and highly reliable as it is made with the same precision as nautical instruments. The Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph Edition Volvo Ocean Race 2011–2012 is a tribute to the world’s most intrepid sailors. Water-resistant to 6 bar, equipped with crown protection and IWC’s 89361-calibre movement, it is one of the most robust watches in the world, designed to withstand immense stress – and also a very handsome timepiece.
