IWC - Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph Edition “Boesch”

| No comment
IWC pays tribute to Swiss boatbuilder Boesch with a limited edition of its Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph characterised by a mahogany-coloured dial and, on the inside of the glass back cover, a mahogany inlay made specially for the watch by Boesch itself.

With its clearly structured dial and classic railway-track- style chapter ring, simple Arabic numerals, and slender feuille hands, this limited edition maintains the key design elements typical of the original Portugieser model introduced in 1939.

The analogue display at 12 o’clock indicates stop times longer than a minute and up to 12 hours.

The 43.5 mm x 14.5 mm stainless steel case features a screw-in crown with protective shoulders and chronograph push buttons whose shape is somehow reminiscent of the bitts found on the deck of ships. Water resistant to 6 bar, it houses the robust IWC-manufactured 89361-chronograph calibre with flyback function which beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 68 hours.

The rugged strap is made of rubber with an alligator leather inlay for enhanced comfort.

A special edition limited to 150 watches, the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph  Edition "Boesch" (ref. IW390504) will be available exclusively through IWC Swiss retailers at a price of Euro 13,500.
