(1939) IWC POR­TUGUESE

Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

An­other leg­endary story: two mer­chants ap­proached IWC in search of a wrist­watch as ac­cu­rate as a marine chronome­ter for sail­ing needs. What IWC cre­ated was a time­piece that could al­most be called a left­over deck watch: a hy­brid be­tween pocket and wrist­watch in size and pre­ci­sion. This IWC clas­sic has been up­dated, re­vamped and rere­leased sev­eral times, most re­cently in hon­our of the 125th an­niver­sary of IWC in 2009 (si­mul­ta­ne­ously the 70th an­niver­sary of the line).
