IWC - Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition "Boutique Milano" in stainless steel

In 2016, on the occasion of the opening of its third Italian boutique - after Rome and Venice - in the heart of Milan’s luxury shopping area, IWC introduced the Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition "Boutique Milano" Ref. IW371215, a 100-piece limited edition housed in a precious red gold case.

The Swiss watchmaker has now unveiled a new edition of this highly appreciated model in stainless steel. Limited to just 150 pieces (hurry up if you are interested), the new IWC Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante Edition "Boutique Milano" Ref. IW371222 is easily recognisable for its unique blue dial with tachymetric scale and telemetric scale. The latter is used to calculate the distance of an event (lighting, for example) based on the time interval from when the lightning is seen to when the sound is heard.

The three chronograph pushers, instead of the usual two, identify the timepiece as a rattrapante chronograph. The "rattrapante" word is based on the French verb "rattraper," which means "to catch again".

Unlike a standard chronograph, the rattrapante or split-seconds chronograph has two hands that start simultaneously. The rattrapante hand, which is superimposed on the stopwatch hand, can be stopped independently using the third push button at 10 o’clock, while the stopwatch hand continues to run. This permits the user to record two separate times, exact to the second, within any given minute. If the third button is pushed again, the split-seconds hand instantaneously catches up and is synchronised with the other hand.

Offering water resistance to 30 metres / 100 feet, the 41 mm x 12.5 mm stainless steel case houses the hand-wound IWC-manufactured calibre 76240 beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and offering a power reserve of 48 hours.

The connection with Milan is emphasised by the back case incision evoking the "Biscione", the grass snake of the Visconti noble dynasty which became the symbol of the city during the Middle Ages. The back case also displays the individual number of each of the 150 pieces that will be produced.
