As the story goes a Portuguese sailor came to IWC asking whether they could make a pocket watch that could fit on the wrist. The Portugieser was born.
Many years on the range has evolved in to many different designs. The range has become synonymous with class and elegance which paved the way for oversized watch designs and trends.
This exquisit example is the Limited Edition Classic Chronograph Ratrapante. Made in honour of IWC’s Paris boutique on Rue de la Paix it is made in an all stainless steel case with a solid case back with a limited edition engraving. It is held on a black genuine alligator strap with matching folding clasp. Fitted with a mechanical self-winding movement with double chronograph functions. Bespoke slate grey dial with applied gold numerals. Finished with a sapphire crystal glass.
