Description

The new Portuguese Chronograph  Classic (Ref. 3904) brings exceptional elegance and classically inspired design  to this popular collection, though the redesigned watch  has a  surprisingly independent look.  

This third chronograph member of  the Portuguese dynasty preserves the identity and cultural heritage of the legendary originals of the 1930s. The timepiece comes complete with appliquéd Arabic numerals, a railway­track­style chapter ring and slender feuille hands. An archededge front glass makes this slim beauty’s 42-millimetre diameter seem smaller than it is.

The traditional type of glasse used admirably sets off the language of form, lending a welle-balanced and classical impression. Powering the Portuguese Chronograph Classic is an IWC-manufactured 89631 calibre, developed specifically to record time spans of up to 12 hours on a subdial. The result is as bold and easy to read as a clock face. The sapphire-glass back reveals the 89361 calibre and the rotor, resplendent in Geneva stripes.
