About the Watch

The legendary IWC Portugieser was supposedly created at the end of the 1930s. After IWC launched the first so-called special watch for pilots in 1936, the company dedicated itself to the Portugieser – also called Portuguese. The Portuguese watch importers Teixeira and Rodriguez are said to have given the impulse to the IWC management that their customers want a large and precise men’s wristwatch with a steel case. In principle, this is a simple customer request that is still widespread today. IWC’s engineers took a flat mechanical hand-wound movement from the company’s range of pocket watches and placed it in a classic steel case. With its simple silver-coloured dial and small seconds display, the Portugieser quickly became a bestseller in both Western and Eastern Europe. Even today, the Portuguese chronograph has timeless design elements of the original watch, such as the large, simple stainless steel case and hands. The diameter is 41mm and the watch has a lug width of 20mm.

A beige or cream-colored watch strap, such as the Sand-Beige suede strap, fits particularly well with the gold-coloured indices on the dial. A great highlight with vintage character is the Choklat-Grey leather strap on the Portugieser.
