The New Portugieser Yacht Club Combines Timeless Elegance With Sporty Flair
IWC Schaffhausen presents the new Portugieser Yacht Club. Novel nautical functions and elegant case proportions together with high robustness and water-resistance make this nautical sports 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.
Since 2010, the Portugieser Yacht Club has brought a sporting note to the family. As a nautical sports watch, it combines timeless elegance with ruggedness and high water-resistance. These characteristics make the Yacht Club an extremely versatile watch that cuts a fine figure both on water and land. Two eye-catching features in the new models are the filigree bezel and flat casing ring. Together, they lend the case, with its 44-millimetre diameter, particularly elegant proportions.
IWC has also launched the 3rd generation of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph (Ref. 3907). Featuring a 44 mm case this nautical sports chronograph combines timeless elegance with high robustness and a water-resistance of 6 bar. All three models offer highly ergonomic metal bracelets in either stainless steel or steel and 18-carat 5N gold.
Ticking away inside these watches is the IWC manufactured 89361 calibre. It displays the stopped hours and minutes in a single totaliser at 12 o’clock. Thanks to its flyback function, the stopwatch hands can be returned to zero simply by pressing the reset button, and a new timing sequence starts immediately. The automatic winding builds up a power reserve of 68 hours. The movement can be viewed through the transparent case back.
