  • Catalogue Essay

    In July 2016, IWC opened their Milan boutique. The brand celebrated this milestone with a limited edition timepiece realised in only 100 pieces, the present one being number 52. With a somewhat of a “surprise move”, IWC used this edition to finally satisfy the requests IWC collectors had been making for over ten years: the Boutique Milano Portugieser effectively re-introduced the split seconds complication to the line, a much-missed feature not seen in a Portugieser model since 2006. The technical prowess of the movement is coupled with a generous 41mm case and a multi-scale dial featuring a mesmerising metallic navy blue finish. The presence of the telemeter and tachymeter scale is a subtle connection to another limited edition Portugieser IWC made for the Italian public: the “Barozzi” Portugieser (Barozzi being the IWC retailer in Brescia) launched in 2004, and was actually the first Portugieser to feature this scale combination.

    The present example is offered in absolutely unused condition - still retaining the IWC sticker to the back. It retains its complete set of accessories.
