• IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Automatic 42 Blue

IWC Schaffhausen unveiled the latest additions to its Portugieser collection: the Automatic 42 models. These watches feature a redesigned case with a slender side profile. The box-glass sapphire crystals provide clear visibility of the intricately finished dials, featuring 15 layers of transparent lacquer. The larger aperture sapphire crystals on the back reveal the IWC-manufactured 52011 movement equipped with Pellaton winding systems and ceramic components. Some models sport new design codes with dial colors like Horizon Blue, Obsidian, Dune, and Silver Moon, symbolizing the cycle of day and night and highlighting the timeless design of the Portugieser.

Originating from the late 1930s, the Portugieser maintains its timeless appeal with its simple case shape, easy-to-read dial, and distinctive features like applied Arabic numerals and Feuille-type hands. The Portugieser Automatic models feature a balanced dial layout with a power reserve indicator at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock, powered by the IWC-manufactured 52011 calibre, offering improved escapement and enhanced magnetic field protection.
