With its imposing size but with thin, simple hands and plain Arabic numerals, the Portugieser has been one of IWC’s most iconic chronograph models since 1939. The Swiss company is used to make limited edition watches especially modified and detailed to the cities containing IWC flagship stores. Each city’s edition is uniquely engraved on the back with an iconic image from that city.
Their latest model, the Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Geneva Edition ($TBA) features the Rattrapante split-seconds hands that allow dual time recording, as well as a stainless steel case with a black dial that sports rose gold-plated indices. The watch also sports a telemeter and tachymeter scale and it’s powered by a hand-wound 76240 caliber movement with a 44-hour time reserve. Paired with a brown alligator leather strap, this luxurious timepiece will be limited to only 50 pieces, all to be sold exclusively at the newly opened IWC Boutique in Geneva, Switzerland.
