SOLD OUT: IWC Portuguese Chronograph 2022 18K RED GOLD IW371611 Box Papers WARRANTY
WHY THIS WATCH
The IWC Portuguese line was created in the 1930's when two Portuguese wholesalers approached IWC to commission a large wristwatch that carried the precision of a pocket watch. The 43mm reference IWC 325 was created as a result. Although this reference was not a big seller for IWC at the time, it gained a cult-like following decades later. It also paved the way for the IWC's Portuguese lineup. The modern Portuguese line pays homage to the original reference 325, with a range of watches that are around 41mm in diameter with a focus on big, accurate movements.
History of the Portuguese
In 1998 IWC launched the IWC Portuguese Chronograph, reference 3714. With it's perfect proportions, and a simple yet elegant dial layout, this reference would soon become IWC's high selling and most popular watch. In 2020, IWC released the reference 3716 which was a major update to the Portuguese Chronograph. Most notably, the reference 3716 was powered by IWC's in-house chronograph movement.
Outside of the new In-House movement, IWC didn't change much when it introduced this new reference, and that is a smart decision in our opinion. The design and engineering elements that made this watch so beloved were not changed. Namely, the case of this watch is very compact, at 41mm and 13mm in height. The dial is simple, but very elegant and extremely legible. This is a watch that can be worn by almost anyone and for any occasion.
A formula that works
The biggest change to the Portuguese Chronograph is the introduction of the in-house movement, reference 69355. This movement is far superior to the Valjoux 7750 in the older model. It's a column wheel chronograph, meaning it's smoother upon activation. Also the power reserve is up a few hours to 46.
In House Calibre 69355
This watch was always been one of my favorite references, not just from IWC but from any brand. It's just the perfect size for my average 6.5 inch wrist. I can't stop staring at those Arabic numerals. There's something just so special about this dial. I would venture to say this is the most beautiful and readable dial of all time. I find that this watch dresses down pretty well with the brown suede strap.
