Swiss luxury watch maker IWC Schaffhausen welcomes a new world time model to its popular Portugieser Yacht Club line. The Portugieser Yacht Club Worldtimer is available in limited editions of 100 watches in red gold (Ref. IW326605) and 500 watches in stainless steel (Ref. IW326602).
Thanks to its 24-hour ring, the Worldtimer function of the Portugieser Yacht Club Worldtimer enables easy legibility of 13 time zones including the current Universal Time Coordinated (UTC). The 12 place names on the external city ring each represent a time zone. When passing through a time zone, the hour hand can be adjusted forwards or backwards in one-hour steps – also when crossing the International Date Line. The mechanical movement does not have to be stopped in order to make such an adjustment (Time Zone Corrector = TZC).
Inside beats the IWC Calibre 35750, an automatic movement with 35 jewels and has autonomy up to 42 hours. In addition to world time this timepiece displays a date indication at 3’o clock.
The 18-carat red gold model comes with a silver-plated dial, black rubber strap with alligator leather inlay and folding clasp in 18-carat red gold. The stainless steel model has a slate-coloured dial, black rubber strap with alligator leather inlay and folding clasp in stainless steel. The case back is fitted with a special printed glass showing geographical display of the 24 time zones.
