About IWC Portuguese

Portuguese seafarers on daring voyages in the 15th and 16th centuries would be amazed by the contemporary timepieces they inspired in the modern era. IWC Portuguese watches borrow from an illustrious past. Established in the late 1930s, IWC made the first Portuguese timepiece in 1939. This quality watch offers the precision and technical prowess loved by collectors. The Yacht Club automatic chronograph has a sporty look and started life in 1967 as a durable men's watch well-suited to life on the rough high seas. One of the brand's most popular timepieces, the chronograph features the IWC-manufactured 5000 caliber, which combines modern and traditional technology. The hand-wound watch incorporates complex mechanics, including a balance with a Breguet spring for maximum precision, as well as bidirectional Pellaton winding. It has a seven-day movement and power reserve display. Later models in the Portuguese range feature a perpetual calendar and minute repeater.
