To mark the 75th anniversary of the Portugieser watch family, IWC has given the Portugieser Tourbillon Mystere Retrograde (Ref. 5046) an additional touch of luxury. The new arched-edge front glass makes the Portugieser Tourbillon Mystere Retrograde appear both slimmer and more elegant.
Featuring one of the most sophisticated of watchmaking complications, the IWC Portugieser Minute Repeater has held watch lovers under its spell since 1995. In the anniversary year of 2015, IWC launches two limited edition versions of the Portugieser Minute Repeater, 500 watches in platinum and a 500 in 18-carat red gold.
Portugieser Chronograph has been the most sought-after model in the IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser family since 1998. With a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour, the movement is extremely precise, and times can be recorded on the high-precision calibrated scale running round the dial to an accuracy of one-eighth of a second.
The IWC Portofino Midsize Automatic comes in four red-gold and six stainless-steel versions, each of which is available with a diamond-set bezel or a slightly more understated variation with 12 jewels on the dial. The sparkling stones are of remarkable clarity and give the watches an exquisite feel, while the design remains sleek and simple.
The watch features a sumptuous red gold (IW459102) or stainless-steel (IW459101) case, combined with a black or dark blue alligator leather strap made by Santoni. It is also available with a Milanaise mesh bracelet in stainless steel or 18-carat red gold. Supplying the power is the 35700-calibre mechanical movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
