SIHH 2015: IWC - Portuguese Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition 75th Anniversary

One of the most iconic watches ever created, the IWC (at the time International Watch Company) Portuguese was launched in 1939 with a number of dial versions.

Unveiled at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2015, the new IWC Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition 75th Anniversary pays tribute to a version of the original Portugieser that until now has been fairly unknown. Fortunately, an original version of this model had remained in a private collection, and became a source of inspiration for IWC’s designers.


This historic piece features all the attributes which have defined the appearance of the Portugieser to this day: Arabic numerals, slim feuille hands, railway-track-style chapter ring and small seconds at 6 o’clock. However, the inner chapter ring, hour indices and Arabic numerals are aesthetically very prominent in gold brown with black edging.



The red gold version with silver-plated dial has adopted the colour scheme and company logo of its forebear almost without change except for the new date display on the subdial at 6 o’clock.



The stainless steel version features a matte black dial in contrast with light green elements.


The coved bezel, a typical design characteristic of the Portugieser line, and the arched-edge sapphire glass help to make the case appear less bulky despite its 12-millimetre height and 43-millimetre diameter.

IWC’s in-house 59215-calibre movement - beating at a frequency of 4 hertz, or 28,800 vibrations per hour - supplies the watch with energy for 8 days. Actually, it would be almost 9 days, were it not for an system that blocks the movement after the first 192 hours, or precisely 8 days. Through the transparent sapphire-glass back, it is possible to verify the remaining power reserve.


The Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “75th Anniversary” will be available in a limited edition of 175 watches in red gold (ref. IW510206) while the stainless-steel version (ref. IW510205) is limited to 750 watches. Indicative prices (subject to changes due to the recent All models are fitted with exclusive alligator leather straps produced by Italian shoe manufacturer Santoni. Indicative prices without taxes - and subject to increases due to the recent move by the Swiss central bank to remove the 1.20 peg in the EUR/CHF exchange rate - are Euro 8,500 for the stainless steel version and Euro 16,000 for the red gold one. iwc.com
