Limited to 500 pieces, this special edition timepiece features a bold burgundy dial adorned with elegant gold-plated hands and appliques. Why burgundy? Burgundy is a classy and subdued alternative to the traditional vivid red typically used for decorating during the Lunar New Year festivities. And if you saw our Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition for the Year of Tiger last year, you’ll remember how striking that burgundy was. We’re keeping it in the red-hued family.
Speaking of family, Lunar New Year is also a time for reuniting with family and loved ones. We too have families at IWC - our watch families - with the Portugieser being one of our most iconic. Did you know that our first Portugieser timepiece was released in 1939, which also happened to be the Year of the Rabbit. Coincidence? Luck? You tell me.
