The IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic is a seamless blending of elegant design, and horological fascination. Based on an original IWC wristwatch developed in the 1930’s, the Portuguese Chrono-Automatic utilizes an extremely attractive bi-compax chronograph display to discreetly mark elapsed time. Unlike many chronographs which emphasize sporty pursuits, the priority of the IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic is decidedly classical.

The IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic features an automatic-winding movement that is both precise and reliable, enabling its chronograph mechanism to record time intervals of up to 30-minutes, with accuracy to within 1/8 of a second. The vertical layout of the subdials is a hallmark of this chronograph, and is the result of IWC’s exclusive underdial mechanism. The power reserve of the IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic is 44 hours.

The IWC Portuguese Chrono-Automatic is immediately recognizable; its predominantly satin-finished 40.9-mm. case makes a stately impression in any of the available metal choices – steel, 18K rose gold, 18K yellow gold, or 18K white gold. In rose gold or stainless steel, the Portuguese Chrono-Automatic is available with either a pearlized silver or black dial; unique to the 18K white gold version is a rich graphite-colored dial. In any of these variations, the shapely leaf hands and cabochon minute track remain visual constants which immediately distinguish this fine watch–sure to remain a popular selection for chronograph lovers of impeccable taste.
