PORTUGIESER HORIZON BLUE
In the early afternoon, the sun bathes the world in a bright, clear light. The light blue sky served as the inspiration for the new dial colour Horizon Blue.

PORTUGIESER PERPETUAL CALENDAR 44

PORTUGIESER DUNE
The unique atmosphere of early evening, with the golden light of the setting sun was the inspiration for our new dial colour Dune.

PORTUGIESER CHRONOGRAPH
A major pillar of the collection since 1998, the Portugieser Chronograph is distinguished by its easy-to-read dial with the vertically arranged totalizers. The quarter-seconds precision scale reflects the Portugieser’s DNA as a measuring instrument.

PORTUGIESER OBSIDIAN
The design code Obsidian with black dials and gold-plated hands and appliques stands for the deep black sky at night and the golden light of the city.

PORTUGIESER AUTOMATIC 40
Representing the essence of the timeless Portugieser design, the Portugieser Automatic 40 stands in direct lineage to the original Reference 325 from 1939. The new version features a re-worked case construction with double box-glass sapphire crystals.

PORTUGIESER SILVER MOON
The unique whitish shimmer of the moon’s surface is reflected on the silver-plated moon dials, which are crafted in a complex process comprising 60 individual steps.

BRIAN COX

IWC Schaffhausen collaborated with renowned particle physicist and TV host, Professor Brian Cox, who took them on an exciting journey to understand the nature of time and space.

The Professor at University of Manchester, contemplated time and its origins and the philosophical challenges associated with an eternal universe. He explained that, fundamentally, we don’t know what watches measure – and why observing the seconds hand on the dial opens the door to the most profound mysteries about space and time.

“If you were to throw a watch into a black hole, it would stop ticking and freeze forever. On what we call the “event horizon” of a black hole, time ceases. But only when viewed from the outside. If you fell into the black hole with your watch, it would keep ticking at one second per second.
