It may be chilly here, but summer style happens in winter, as we take our haute horlogerie cues from Europe. And, IWC Schaffhausen is bringing a touch of summer to your wrist, with a new edition of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph as part of its “Summer Editions” collection. Take a dip, go for a sail… with a water-resistant stainless steel case, a blue dial and a resilient blue rubber strap, this sporty chronograph is perfect for the warmer months of the year.
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 watch.
IWC is also launching a special collection of matching fabric straps, offered in fashionable blue and light grey and available in all IWC boutiques and Elegance Jewellers in Sandton City. These straps are designed to accessorise selected watches from the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser and Portofino ranges and will only be available for a limited amount of time.
