W&W 2020: IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide and Yacht Club Chronograph

IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Moon and Tide IW34001 Watches And Wonders 2020 Novelty

Since 2010, the ‘Portugieser Yacht Club’ has brought a sporting note to the Portugieser family. IWC Schaffhausen now presents four new models in this line. The Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide is the first model to feature IWC’s newly developed tide indication. The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph will be available in three versions. All new models feature a noticeable filigree bezel and flat casing ring.

Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide

The Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide (Ref. 344001) is the first watch from IWC to sport the newly developed tide indication. A subdial at 6 o’clock indicates the expected times for the next high and low tide. The double moon phase display at 12 o’clock has been enhanced to show spring and neap tides and thus provides information about the strength of the current tides. Spring tides, which bring particularly high water, occur at full moon and new moon.

Ref. IW344001: 18-carat 5N gold case, blue dial, gold-plated hands, 18-carat gold appliques, blue rubber strap with textile inlay.

The module for the double moon phase display and the tide display is driven by the IWC-manufactured 82835 calibre. This robust automatic movement features a Pellaton winding fitted with ceramic components and offers a power reserve of 60 hours. It can be viewed through the transparent sapphire glass back. The 18-carat 5N gold case measures a diameter of 44 millimetres.

Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph

IWC has also launched the 3rd generation of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph (Ref. 3907). Featuring a 44 mm case this nautical sports chronograph offers a water-resistance of 6 bar. All three models offer ergonomic metal bracelets in either stainless steel or steel and 18-carat 5N gold.

Ref. IW390701: Stainless steel case, blue dial, rhodium-plated hands and appliques, stainless steel bracelet.
Ref. IW390702: Stainless steel case, silver-plated dial, blue hands and appliques, stainless steel bracelet.

Ref. IW390703: Stainless steel case, silver-plated dial, gold-plated hands and 18-carat 5N gold appliques, bracelet made of 18-carat 5N gold and stainless steel.

Inside these watches run the IWC manufactured 89361 calibre. It displays the stopped hours and minutes in a single totaliser at 12 o’clock. Thanks to its flyback function, the stopwatch hands can be returned to zero simply by pressing the reset button, and a new timing sequence starts immediately. The automatic winding builds up a power reserve of 68 hours. The movement can be viewed through the transparent case back.

PRICE: Ref. IW344001 (18K 5N Gold) is priced at 34,800 euros. Ref. IW390701 (steel) and Ref. IW390702 (steel) are priced at 12,600 euros. Ref. IW390703 (steel and 18K 5N rose gold) is priced at 19,100 euros.
