W&W 2020: IWC Portugieser Chronograph

IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Chronograph Ref IW371614 Boutique Edition Watches And Wonders 2020 Novelty

Earlier this year, IWC Schaffhausen introduced a new version of the IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Chronograph. Now, the Swiss watchmaker is introducing three new variations into the collection. Dial options now include a choice of either a burgundy or green dial. Furthermore, the brand is introducing a Boutique Edition with a 18-carat 5N gold case with a blue dial.

The typical design of the IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Chronograph with a clear, open dial and recessed counters at 6 and 12 o’clock remain unchanged. Furthermore, the applied Arabic numerals and slim feuille hands also remain part of the design. The edge of the dial features a printed quarter-second scale. This allows for a precise reading of the stop time. Additionally, domed, non-reflective sapphire crystal protects the dial, while the sapphire crystal back reveals the movement.

The manufacture calibre 69355 drives all three IWC Schaffhausen Portuguese Chronograph editions. The self-winding movement features a column-wheel chronograph and a power reserve of 46 hours. In addition, the stop-seconds function allows the time to be set precisely.

All three models are water-resistant to 30 meters. The Ref. IW371615 with a green dial and the Ref. IW371616 with a burgundy dial come in a 41 mm stainless steel case with a black alligator leather strap. The Boutique Edition Ref. IW371614 is presented in an 18 carat pink gold case, has a blue dial, gold-plated hands, 18 carat gold appliqués and a blue alligator strap.

The three new variants are an addition to the Portugieser collection. A total of nine different versions of the IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Chronograph are now available: six in stainless steel and three in 18-carat 5N gold.

PRICE: Ref. IW371615 (steel, green dial) and IW371616 (steel, burgundy dial) are priced at 7,850 euros. The price of the Ref. IW371614 (Boutique Edition) is 17,400 euros.
