  • Catalogue Essay

    The IWC Portugieser is one of the firm’s most celebrated and iconic models with its heritage dating back to the late 1930’s during the rise of the wristwatch. As a special request from two Portuguese businessmen requiring wristwatches with the precision of marine chronometers, IWC incorporated a pocket watch caliber 74 and encased it in a wristwatch. The result was far beyond what anyone would have expected at the time.

    In 2011, IWC released the ref. IW371447 featuring a self-winding chronograph caliber with two vertical registers. Featuring its traditional case design with iconic chronograph pushers distinct to the Portugieser, the watch is an instant classic. Paired beautifully along with a black dial, the present timepiece displays a subdued elegance. In 2020, IWC launched a new model replacing the present which now makes the present discontinued model a nice and attractive piece to acquire.

    Presented in brand new and unworn condition, the present lot is further accompanied by the full set of accessories.
