IWC - Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante, two new Boutique Editions

| No comment
Following the introduction of the limited edition model created for the Milan boutique and presented here last July, IWC is launching two new Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition limited-edition watches dedicated to the cities of Paris and Munich.


250 watches are being launched in the Edition "Boutique Rue de la Paix" (Ref. IW371216), with a stainless-steel case, slate-coloured dial and black alligator leather strap, and 250 in the Edition "Boutique Munich" (Ref. IW371217), with a stainless-steel case, blue dial and blue alligator leather strap.



The display on these models is based on the original design of the Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante from 1995.

The engravings on the back of the watches show icons or landmarks from the respective cities. All three timepieces are driven by a hand-wound 76240-calibre movement with a power reserve of 44 hours.



In addition to the capabilities of a pure chronograph, the double chronograph also features a split-seconds mechanism. On starting the chronograph, two centrally rotating stopwatch hands – mounted one above the other – are set in motion. An additional push-button at 10 o’clock is used to stop the upper hand, while the lower hand continues to move until the regular stop button at 2 o’clock is pushed. This enables two short periods of time to be measured simultaneously.

When the rattrapante push button is activated a second time, the split-seconds hand is brought into renewed synchrony with the chronograph hand – irrespective of whether this has been stopped or is still moving.

The Edition "Boutique Rue de la Paix" will be available from this month in the IWC boutique Rue de la Paix in Paris, and the Edition "Boutique Munich" is expected to be available from spring 2017 in the IWC boutique Munich. iwc.com
