Portugieser Reference 325
The Reference 325 was the birth of the Portugieser line. Beneath its elegant dial beat the heart of a pocket watch movement – that was the only way to get marine chronometer grade timekeeping into a wristwatch. That meant the case had a diameter of 41.5 millimetres, which was shockingly large for a Swiss mechanical watch at the time. Nevertheless, it became a true icon and set the standard for all Portugieser to leave the Schaffhausen workshops.
Pilot’s Watch Mark 11
The Mark 11 is the very definition of a tool watch. Built for the Royal Air Force, it was engineered to withstand the shock, vibration, and magnetic fields of the cockpit. It remained in service into the 1980s, and forged the design language still seen throughout the IWC Pilot's Watch line – making it one of IWC’s most iconic mechanical watches.
Portugieser Sidérale Scafusia
The Sidérale Scafusia is one of the most complex mechanical watches ever created. It took a team of engineers, scientists, and master watchmakers ten years to develop. And it was well worth the wait. This masterpiece of haute horlogerie features the patented Constant-Force Tourbillon for incredibly precise timekeeping – of both solar and a sidereal time. And on the back, a star chart enables the buyer to keep track of his or her unique place in the universe.
