A summer twist for your wrist
IWC is launching a summer edition of the portugieser yacht club chronograph along with a collection of seasonal straps
Summer has arrived, bringing the promise of pleasantly warm weather and the temptation to cool off with a refreshing dip in the water. 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 the perfect companion for your next sailing trip – or any other summer adventure you might have in mind. 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. 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 Portofno ranges and will only be available for a limited amount of time.
