Portugieser Automatic

Ask about this watch

    The Portugieser Automatic has become one of the most successful Portugieser models ever to be produced in Schaffhausen. The balanced dial design retains the classic appeal of the legendary original Portugieser first manufactured in the 1930s. The pawls, automatic wheel and rotor bearing in the legendary Pellaton winding system are made from extremely wear-resistant ceramic, while two barrels build up an impressive 7-day power reserve.

    The ergonomically optimized strap horns ensure greater comfort even on slimmer wrists. The Portugieser Automatic is available with a 42.3-millimetre red gold case, silver-plated dial and solid gold appliqués. Thanks to the slimmed-down rotor, a glance through the transparent sapphire-glass back reveals even more details of the IWC-manufactured 52010-calibre, such as the black ceramic pawls in the winding system or the Geneva stripe decoration.

    With a clear focus on technology and development, the Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has been producing timepieces of lasting value since 1868.

    In the new production facility, the Schaffhauser Uhrenmanufaktur manufactures factory parts and production facilities on an area of ​​13,500 square meters and enclosures under one roof - a milestone in the company's over 150 year history. For example, the entire added value from the raw material through the individual parts of the work to the finished manufacture movement is now arranged on a floor in a logical order.

    The Portuguese

    This very successful timepiece, produced since the mid-30s of the last century, fell out of the usual Art Deco style. While at that time mainly smaller and slimmer wristwatches were available on the market, two Portuguese businessmen turned to the watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen to commission a traditional, large wristwatch with the precision of a pocket watch, for which the Schaffhausen-based company is world-famous. The combination of the Savonette pocket watch calibre 74 with a case suitable for wristwatches set the stylistic and technical standard for all subsequent watches in the Portuguese series.

    The easy-to-read and clearly structured dial skilfully continues the design language of IWC's Portuguese customers known since the 1930s and complements it with another timeless piece of jewellery.
