Founded in 1868, Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has a reputation for craftsmanship and pioneering technical advances. A leader in the luxury watch industry, IWC is proud of its commitment to sustainable production and maintains partnerships with various organisations dedicated to environmental protection. For 2015, the Portugieser Chronograph remains the most popular timepiece from the covetable Portugieser collection.
Available in different styles, it is shown here in 18-carat red gold with a silver-plated dial and a dark brown alligator leather strap. It features a 44-hour power reserve when fully wound, as well as a stopwatch function with minutes and seconds. Technicalities aside, it would be safe to say that the consistent success of this model lies in its classic design and elegant proportions – a discreet diameter of 40.9mm makes it equally suitable for both men and women.
