IWC's Portuguese range of watches is perhaps its most easily recognized as being an IWC. The moniker was adopted, because two Portuguese watch dealers, Rodrigues and Teixeira, asked IWC in 1936 to produce a wrist version of a marine chronometer - a major technical feat back then. An imposing and impeccably accurate prototype was finally ready by 1939. The modernized version of the IWC Portuguese range is just as big and as elegant as the 1939 original. IWC Portuguese watches have always been timeless. Men and women alike will fall for the Portuguese Automatic at first sight. Wide and open, it emanates sobriety and class, and is both functional and refined at all times and in all circumstances. The rounded profile of the sapphire, with non reflective finish, gives a real presence to the IWC time piece, as well as being supremely comfortable to wear and easy to read. The decision to buy such a watch is not to be taken lightly. More than just a simple investment, owning an IWC means you are entrusting the management of your time to a brand that is rigorous, a brand for which technology rhymes with high performance, and sobriety with elegance.
Founded in 1868 by an American, Florentine Jones, in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, IWC is probably best known for its world-beating complicated timepieces. IWC is a fully integrated Watch Manufacture; creating and assembling its own movements, parts and watches all under one roof. IWC continues to contribute significant technical advancements in the world of watchmaking, including anti-gravity and anti-magnetic movements.
