Portugieser Yacht Club
Summer has arrived, bringing the promise of pleasantly warm weather and the temptation to cool off with a re- freshing dip in the water. Thanks to its water-resistant stainless steel case with integrated crown guard and its resilient blue rubber strap, the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph (Ref. IW390507) is the perfect companion for your next sailing trip, or any other summer adventure you might have in mind.
The blue dial with white counters, rhodium-plated hands and the red second hand of the chronograph produce an overall look that’s deliberately casual. The 89361 manufacture calibrewith flyback function indicates the measured hours and minutes together on a subdial at 12 o’clock, while the quarter-second scale that surrounds the dial allows for precise measurement of shorter time periods. The transparent case-back in sapphire crystal offers an unimpeded view of the mechanical inner workings of this sporty chronograph.
Even if you already own a different timepiece from the Schaffhausen Manufacture, you can still add a touch of summer to your wrist. The second highlight of the “Summer Editions” collection is a special collection of fabric straps that IWC Schaffhausen is launching for some of its most popular classic watches – all available in seasonal designs that use pale blue or light grey colours.
The following straps are available. Four fabric straps in blue, light grey, blue with light grey trim, light grey with blue trim aimed at the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII and Pilot’s Watch Chronograph. Two fabric straps in blue and light grey specifically for the Portofino Automatic and Portofino Chronograph. And finally two fabric straps in blue and light grey for the Portugieser Chronograph models. These straps are only available for a limited time period as saccessories to the models listed above. They can be fitted to your watch at any IWC boutique, whether an old favourite or a brand new purchase,.
