Description

The history of International Watch Co. or IWC goes back to 1868. Interestingly, it was founded by Florentine Ariosto Jones who was an American. Jones traveled all the way to eastern Switzerland to create IWC and establish its unique legacy and timepieces. This company creates its timepieces with total adherence to its motto – ‘Probus Scafusia’ which means good, solid craftsmanship with Schaffhausen. The brand believes in tying together sublime design and precision engineering and the result is watches which are the epitome of haute horlogerie – some of them have a power reserve that lasts upto 8 days. Another exceptional aspect of IWC is their focus on sustainability and ecological responsibility.

The Portugieser as it was known then was crafted on the specific brief given by Rodrigues and Teixeira, two Portuguese businessmen. They wanted a large watch and the Portuguese is a pioneer in large wristwatches. Big in style and big in presence, the Portuguese collection is massively charismatic with some watches offering Moon Phase and perpetual calendar features too.
