Novel nautical functions and elegant case proportions together with high robustness and water-resistance make this nautical sport watch the perfect companion on deck and ashore. The Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide is the first model to feature IWC’s newly developed tide indication. The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph will be available in three versions.

The Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide (Ref. 344001) is the first watch from IWC to sport the newly developed tide indication. A subdial at 6 o’clock indicates the expected times for the next high and low tide.

The tourbillon is one of watchmaking’s most fascinating achievements. Effectively, it involves the balance rotating around its axis in a cage. This not only provides a visual spectacle on the dial: the constant rotation also reduces the influence of gravity on the oscillating system and increases the watch’s accuracy. The Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph combines a tourbillon with a retrograde date display and chronograph, while the Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon boasts a tourbillon and a perpetual calendar.

The Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph (Ref. 3940) combines a flying minute tourbillon at 6 o’clock with a retrograde date display at 9 o’clock and a flyback chronograph. The model is available in two versions, both limited to 50 watches. One is housed in an 18-carat Armor Gold® case with a blue dial featuring the maritime- inspired design cues of the Boutique Editions. Thanks to its improved microstructure, this innovative new material has considerably higher hardness values than traditional 5N gold alloys. A second version is available in platinum.
