Inside the case of this chronograph, IWC now uses a high quality in-house movement from the 69000-calibre family, which can be seen through the transparent back.

The open, clean, functional dial, with two recessed totalizers at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock, appliquéd Arabic numerals and slim feuille hands is encircled by a filigree bezel. The flange, printed with a quarter-second scale, enables precision reading of stopwatch times and gives this timeless Portugieser a subtle, sporty touch.

Externally, the iconic design of the new models, which are grouped under Reference 3716, remains unchanged. The decisive new feature is hidden away inside the watch, the IWC-manufactured 69355 calibre ensures the precise display and measurement of time. The rugged, precision chronograph movement with the classic column-wheel design can be seen through the transparent back. An automatic pawl-winding system builds up a power reserve of 46 hours. 

Six different versions are available in 18-carat 5N gold or stainless steel. The stainless-steel models are equipped with the newly developed butterfly folding clasp, which is particularly comfortable to wear.
