The IWC Portuguese is a renowned watch collection with a storied history. It originated in the 1930s when two Portuguese businessmen approached IWC seeking a wristwatch with the precision of a marine chronometer. In response, IWC developed a large, highly accurate timepiece equipped with a pocket watch movement.
The first Portuguese watches were produced in limited numbers but gained a loyal following. Over the years, the collection evolved with different dial designs, complications, and movement innovations. In 1993, IWC relaunched the Portuguese line, paying homage to its original design with classic aesthetics and modern technology.
Today, the IWC Portuguese is celebrated for its elegant and distinctive appearance, often characterized by a clean dial, Arabic numerals, and slim hands. It has become a cornerstone of IWC’s collection, embodying the brand’s commitment to precision, craftsmanship, and timeless style.
