IWC Portuguese Yacht Club Automatic Chronograph

The IWC Portuguese Yacht Club was first introduced in 1939 and is the most popular series in the Schaffhausen manufacturer’s collection. The watch was named after two Portuguese businessmen - Rodrigues and Texiera - who approached IWC in the 1930s and requested a large stainless steel wristwatch that could match the precision of a marine chronometer. 

IWC responded by creating a timepiece made from a modified pocket watch measuring a whopping 43mm which was very large for the time. Despite the size, the hallmarks of the Portuguese were there; a minimalistic dial with bold Arabic numerals coupled with a thin bezel that made the watch appear even larger. The watch would sell in small quantities for decades until the mid-1990s when IWC decided to re-design and release it for the modern watch market. Since the Portugieser’s rebirth, the watch has gone on to become the gem in IWC’s crown and is available in a multitude of case material options and complications. The watch stays true to the original designs but now comes in three different sizes and several dial colors.
