IWC Portugieser Watches for Sale 

Perhaps the most popular collection from the Swiss luxury watchmaker IWC, the Portugieser was named after the Portuguese businessmen who originally commissioned these watches back in the 1930s. They wanted a wristwatch that was as precise and accurate as a pocket watch with the modern look of a marine chronometer.  

IWC came through with a watch that was not only extremely accurate but also incredibly good-looking. These elegant, sophisticated sport watches were very fashion-forward with their large steel cases and Arabic numerals.  Unfortunately, the Portugieser's debut in 1939 coincided with the onset of World War II. The war prevented the distribution of the watches to Portugal and elsewhere in Western Europe.   

After the war, the Portugieser had a rocky road ahead of it. It only really became popular in 1993. However, these increasingly desirable luxury watches have proven they are now here to stay! You can find your iconic IWC Portugieser watch for sale from  

Getting Complicated 

Iconic features of a Portugieser are the large face with a limited bezel, clear Arabic numerals, slender leaf-shaped hands, railroad track-style chapter ring, and one or more subdials. It may look simple on the outside, but this watch is anything but simple on the inside! The clean, elegantly simple design hides an amazingly accurate movement and a wide selection of available complications.   

Common complications seen on the Portugieser are a chronograph, stopwatch function, annual calendar, and/or a perpetual calendar.  The superb Grande Complication features a chronograph function, minute repeater, and a perpetual calendar. However, the brand's pièce de résistance is the Portugieser Sidérale Scafusia.  This extraordinary platinum tourbillon watch features a star chart and sidereal time subdial amongst its other complications! Only a few of these exceptional and highly-prized watches are produced each year.
