The IWC Portugieser Chronograph gets got the 30-minute chronograph counter at 12:00 and the constant seconds at 6:00. Thankfully, we’re spared the date window here. If you’re a lover of the newest IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic published a little while ago, you’ll notice that this gloomy dialed sibling does not have the exceptional moment and hour totalizer at 12:00. This, combined with the steel caseback is a indication which IWC has shrunk to its Valjoux 7750-derived grade 79350. This is a peculiar and seriously unsatisfactory choice given the excellent in-house caliber 89361 they’ve available.The quality 79350, as a modified Valjoux 7750, is a competent movement and offers 42 hours of power reserve at 28,800bph, but it’s more of a tool Iwc Portofino Automatic Mens Watch Replica motion. What makes this decision even more puzzling is that the IWC Portugieser Automatic is powered by the grade 52010, which is an IWC in-house layout that offers 7 days of power book via two barrels, operating at 28,800bph. As a rule of thumb, if a brand launches a time-only and a chronograph collectively within exactly the same line, then I anticipate the movements to be of a similar provenance and for the chronograph to become priced higher.The great news for people who like the Portugieser appearance but have been put off by the purchase price tag for its in-house chrono movement, is that this gloomy dialed, 7750-powered sibling is almost half the price. Both these watches will be regular production and accessible through all stores, stores, and IWC’s recently revamped e-store.

IWC Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph Feature

Joining IWC’s most elegant collection, the Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher Chronograph is the brand’s first single push-button chronograph.

The Portofino Hand-Wound Monopusher (Ref. IW515103) features an 18-carat white gold case with a slate-coloured dial, a grey alligator leather strap by Santoni and an 18-carat white gold pin buckle.
