Model No.: IW500705
The IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Automatic IW500705 watch has an Automatic movement with 3 Bar (30 meters) of water resistance, Stainless Steel case material, Silver dial color and Leather strap with 7 Days of power reserve.
The Portugieser Automatic has become one of the most successful Portugieser models ever to be produced in Schaffhausen. The balanced dial design retains the classic appeal of the legendary original Portugieser first manufactured in the 1930s. The pawls, automatic wheel and rotor bearing in the legendary Pellaton winding system are made from extremely wear-resistant ceramic, while two barrels build up an impressive 7-day power reserve. The ergonomically optimized strap horns ensure greater comfort even on slimmer wrists. The Portugieser Automatic is available with a 42.3-millimetre stainless-steel case, silver-plated dial and blue hands and appliqués. Thanks to the slimmed-down rotor, a glance through the transparent sapphire-glass back reveals even more details of the IWC-manufactured 52010-calibre, such as the black ceramic pawls in the winding system or the Geneva stripe decoration.
The Portugieser came into being when two Portuguese businessmen ordered wristwatches with the precision of marine chronometers in the late 1930s. When the first large wristwatch left the factory, it was technically and aesthetically ahead of its time.
IWC has been at the forefront of watch innovation for over 150 years. Our chronometers continue to redefine the standards of Swiss luxury watches. Each model presents mechanical finesse in which intricate design balances expectations of grandeur.
