To mark the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the legendary Portugieser watch family, Swiss luxury watch maker IWC Schaffhausen pays a fitting tribute to a little known yet wonderfully attractive version of the original Portugieser with the new Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “75th Anniversary”. The design of this limited anniversary edition is almost identical to that of its predecessor, while the act of manually winding the movement once a week is a pleasing ritual.
The Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days Edition “75th Anniversary” will be available in a limited edition of 175 watches in 18-carat red gold with a silver-plated dial (Ref. IW510206); the stainless-steel version with a black dial (Ref. IW510205) is limited to 750 watches. All models are fitted with exclusive alligator leather straps produced by Italian shoe manufacturer Santoni.
