The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph Story
The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is the sportiest timepiece in a watch family steeped in tradition. Powered by the rugged IWC-manufactured 89361-calibre movement and water-resistant to 6 bar, the chronograph reveals its sporting qualities with a flyback function, an additional flange with a quarter-second scale for measuring short stop times and an analogue display for longer stop times on a subdial. The 43.5-millimetre watch has crown protection and is the only Portugieser model to feature luminescent hands and indices. It is available in 18-carat 5N gold with a slate-coloured dial. Thanks to discreet modifications to the design, the chronograph now looks more luxurious and more balanced. Pleasant to wear and exceptionally rugged, the rubber strap perfectly complements the watch’s character: it is slim and sporty.
