IWC Portugieser Automatic 40

For the first time in a non limited series, a revamp of the original Portugieser design is offered in the IWC Portugieser Automatic 40. A bold 40mm stainless steel case houses a new in-house IWC calibre that powers a sleek and clean dial offering only hours, minutes and running seconds just like the original series. A stainless steel bracelet completes the look for great every day wear!

IWC’s Portugieser collection goes back to the 1930’s as seafaring Portguese businessmen tasked IWC with delivering their classic pocket watches but for the wrist, creating an over sized design that remains emblematic of IWC to this day. Carrying a number of different complications from Perpetual Calendars to Chronographs, there is something in this family for everyone.

Stainless steel is robust and practical for everyday use but also corrosion-resistant and unaffected by moisture, sweat and seawater splashes. These properties make it an ideal material for the case and bracelet of a watch. This new version of the Portugieser Automatic 40 is fitted with a 3-link metal bracelet with polished and satin-finished surfaces, adding a fresh and contemporary look and making the watch more versatile and sportier than ever before. Thanks to the integrated butterfly folding clasp, it sits centrally on the wrist and provides high wearing comfort.

The bracelet nicely complements the stainless steel case and the silver-plated dial with blue hands and appliqués. The clean and open dial with the small seconds at 6 o’clock is directly inspired by the first Portugieser from the late 1930s. Ticking away inside the case is the IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre, which can also be admired through the sapphire glass back. The Pellaton winding system has been reinforced with components made of virtually wear-free ceramic. It uses both directions of the rotor to wind the mainspring and builds up a power reserve of up to 60 hours.
