With a characteristic minutes scale, appliquéd Arabic numerals, and slender feuille hands, the Portugieser Automatic expresses the iconic Portugieser design very effectively. The small seconds and the power reserve display are located directly opposite each other at "3 o’clock" and "9 o’clock", which results in a very balanced dial design. This special edition in a nautical design code, which is exclusively available at IWC Boutiques and online at iwc.com, features an 18-carat 5N gold case, a blue dial, gold-plated hands, as well as 18-carat gold appliqués. Ensuring a precise rate is the IWC-manufactured 52010 calibre. The automatic Pellaton winding system features components made of virtually non-wearing ceramic and builds up a power reserve of seven days in two barrels. The decorated movement is visible through a transparent sapphire-glass back. The timepiece is fitted with a blue alligator leather strap.
Calibre Family 52000
The twin barrels are the trademark feature of the 52000-calibre family. They supply the watches with sufficient energy for a 7-day power reserve and drive energy-sapping complications like the annual calendar and perpetual calendar.
