A REINTERPRETATION OF A CLASSIC TIMEPIECE

You could call this chronograph in the Portuguese family the big brother of the Reference 3714. The model is slightly larger in diameter and 2 millimetres higher, although the latter makes little difference optically because of the arched-edge front glass. This traditional type of glass gives the design a classic balance that is enhanced by the railway-track-style chapter ring, which also gave the original Portuguese its distinctive appearance. The Portuguese Chronograph Classic is equipped with the IWC-manufactured 89361 calibre. The movement was developed specially to show stopped times up to 12 hours on a separate subdial, which can be read off like the time of day. The Reference 3904 is available in 18-carat red gold or stainless steel with either a silver-plated or slate-coloured dial. The rotor, decorated with Geneva stripes, can be seen through the transparent sapphire-glass back. All models are supplied with a Santoni strap made of alligator leather.

The 89000-Calibre Family

Designed and manufactured completely by IWC in Schaffhausen, the 89360-calibre chronograph movement and its successor, the 89361, feature a significantly improved self-winding system and set new watchmaking standards. The design, which occupied an IWC development team for a full 4 years, was necessitated by a revolutionary chronograph display that enables the user to read off even relatively long periods of stopped times – 8 hours and 52 minutes, for example – at a glance: a circular totalizer combines the hour and minute hands as if they were a watch-within-a-watch. In 2012, it was joined by the newly developed 89365 chronograph movement including a stopwatch function with minutes and seconds as well as a flyback function. After further development, the IWC-manufactured movement was known as the 89800 calibre and used for the big digital date and month displays in References 3761 and 3791. The new Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month comes equipped with a further development on the theme, the 89802 calibre.
