Official description

IWC Schaffhausen introduces new Portugieser Automatic 42 and Portugieser Automatic 40 models at Watches and Wonders Geneva. The watches feature a completely re-engineered case construction with a slender side profile, making them particularly elegant and refined. Double box-glass sapphire crystals offer an excellent view of the dials, which are elaborately finished with 15 layers of transparent lacquer. Larger aperture sapphire crystals on the back showcase the IWC-manufactured movements from the 52000 and 82000 calibre families, both featuring Pellaton winding systems with ceramic components. Selected models are presented in new design codes with the dial colours Horizon Blue, Obsidian, and Dune reflecting the never-ending cycle of day and night and underscoring the timeless appeal of the Portugieser’s design.
