Portugieser Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph

IWC Schaffhausen


1 212 355 7271


Some watches have become true icons in time, and it is often difficult to reinvent them. IWC had no problems with the newest Portugieser Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph, though, because it deftly combined the classic beauty of this legendary watch with fine mechanics. The automatic movement incorporates a mechanical chronograph with hours and minutes display at 12:00 for timing of events, a constantly rotating flying tourbillon at 6:00, and a retrograde date display in arched format on the dial. The hand counts the days and at the end of the month - no matter how many days are in the month - the hand jumps back to 1 to start its process again. The rich blue dial is reminiscent of the sea. Just 50 pieces will be made.

The American dream is made reality through IWC Schaffhausen watches. Deeply rooted in American pioneering spirit and entrepreneurship, the brand combines this with Swiss engineering and ingenuity to create timepieces that challenge definitions of delusion. The unbound nature of the brand is reflected in its collections, which pay tribute to those who roam all corners of the world.From its Pilot's Watches collection that feature resistance to temperature fluctuations, patented SPRIN-g Protect systems and ergonomic case structures, we are invited to reflect on the transcendence of time. Similarly, engineered for navigators, the Portugieser collection incorporates classical technologies of haute horlogerie, including a double moon phase display and a developed tide indicator. The Portofino line also parades the moon phase mechanism with classy design, including an embossed silver plates dial and diamond embellishment to its watches.
