IWC Portuguese Chronograph Watch
The origin of the Portugese dates back to the end of the 1930s when two Portuguese businessmen - Rodrigues and Teixeira - operating in the watch industry visited the IWC (then International Watch Company) headquarter in Schaffausen proposing the development of a large stainless steel wristwatch housing a movement that could match the precision of a marine chronometer.
The key design elements of the Portuguese were a streamlined dial with Arabic numbers, a very thin bezel contributing to making the watch look even larger
The Portuguese has remained a core part of the IWC Collection and this particular model is a fantastic example dating from 2009. The watch comes complete with the original box and paperwork.
