Summer twist from IWC
The Swiss watch manufacture is launching a new edition of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph as part of its “Summer Editions” collection. With a water-resistant stainless steel case, a blue dial and a resilient blue rubber strap,
this sporty chronograph is a good choice for the warmer months of the year. IWC is also launching a special collection of matching fabric straps, offered in fashionable blue and light grey and available in all IWC boutiques. These trendy straps are designed to accessorise selected watches from the Pilot’s Watches,
Portugieser and Portofino ranges and will only be available for a limited amount of time.
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 an inspired choice for a sailing trip – or any other summer
adventure. 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 calibre with 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.
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 versions are available:
• Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII and Pilot’s Watch Chronograph: Four fabric straps (blue, light grey, blue with light grey trim, light grey with blue trim)
• Portofino Automatic and Portofino Chronograph: Two fabric straps (blue, light grey)
• Portugieser Chronograph: Two fabric straps (blue, light grey)
The straps are only available for a limited time period as accessories to the models listed above. They can be fitted to the watch, whether an old favourite or a brand new purchase, at any IWC boutique.
