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 model features a stainless-steel case, a burgundy dial, as well as rhodium-plated hands and 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 black 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.
