IWC Portugieser watches
The Portugieser (The Watch Formerly Known As Portuguese) is one of IWC's signature and most popular watches. It is said the first models were conceived at the request of two Portuguese businessmen, requesting a wristwatch with a rate that at the time only could only be achieved with pocket watch movements. Hence, IWC created a wristwatch with a pocket watch movement and the signature oversized Portugieser was born. All watches since share the signature clean lines of the original, with notable elements being the slim bezel, feuille hands and Arabic numerals.
