IWC Schaffhausen presents a new edition of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph as part of its “Summer Editions” collection. IWC is also launching a special collection of matching fabric straps, offered in fashionable blue and light grey and available in all IWC boutiques. These trendy straps are designed to accessorise selected watches from the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser and Portofino ranges and will only be available for a limited amount of time.
The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph (Ref. IW390507) features a stainless steel case with integrated crown guard with water resistance up to 60 meters and its come sfitted on a resilient blue rubber strap. The blue dial with white counters, rhodium-plated hands and the red second hand of the chronograph produce an overall look that’s deliberately casual.
The 89361 manufacture caliber with flyback function indicates the measured hours and minutes together on a subdial at 12 o’clock, while the quarter-second scale that surrounds the dial allows for precise measurement of shorter time periods.
The transparent case-back in sapphire crystal offers the view of the mechanical inner workings of this sporty chronograph.
The second highlight of the “Summer Editions” collection is a special collection of fabric straps that IWC Schaffhausen is launching for some of its most popular classic watches – all available in seasonal designs that use pale blue or light grey colours.
