  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 5445 is an homage to the original Portugieser launched in 1939. The sector dial with railroad divisions is absolutely typical of watchmaking from the late 1930s/1940s, and the same is true for the clean, elegant lines of the case. In this instance, the model has been updated with a glazed back which allows the beholder to admire the superb three quarter plate movement, and the dimensions are a very generous 44 millimeter, a slight upgrade from the 43mm of the original.

    The reference was launched in 2008 in a serially produced stainless steel edition, and in the present platinum version limited to 500 pieces.

    The present example is offered in absolutely "as-new" condition and complete of its original sale kit.
