The Watch and Movement

The story of the Portuguese line is quite an incredible one. In the 1930's, two Lisbon-based watch wholesalers contacted IWC, saying they had a unique request for a watch designed to sell in their home country. They wanted an oversized wristwatch that would performed to a marine chronometer standards. This required the watch to have a high-grade pocket watch movement!

Case size is 43mm, with a lug to lug width of mm and thickness of 12.3mm. Lug width is 22mm.
This IWC comes on it’s original alligator Santoni black strap, with tang buckle. Included is the box, booklets and warranty card, dated 2018.
We tend to not polish our watches before listing them for sale. This is because we have always preferred to keep as much metal on the watch as possible and preserve its shape. We are able to offer a polish as a free service; just let us know if you wish for this to be done, and we can have our watchmaker complete. This will take 4-5 working days to dispatch.
We always prefer this! Being enthusiasts, the more watches we get to handle, the better. We're always on the hunt for new and interesting pieces! Please get in touch with the watch you have, along with as much information as you can, such as the reference and any photos. We'd love to give you a price.
