The Portugieser Automatic 40 presents the iconic Portugieser design in a compact case with a diameter of 40 millimetres.
A clearly organized and open dial, with the characteristic minute’s scale and the small seconds at 6 o’clock; in the late 1930s, IWC’s Reference 325 established a classic design idiom that has run as a common thread through the history of the Portugieser family ever since. The Portugieser Automatic 40 presents this timelessly modern design in an easily wearable case diameter of 40 millimetres. This version features a stainless-steel case and rhodium-plated hands and appliqués. An eye-catching design detail is the salmon-coloured dial. Thanks to the reduced Portugieser design and the refined sunray finish, the color emerges particularly beautifully. Matching the dial is the black alligator leather strap, whose butterfly folding clasp ensures a high level of wearing comfort. The IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre powers this timepiece. This robust, high-quality automatic movement has a Pellaton winding system with components made of virtually non-wearing ceramic, which builds up a power reserve of 60 hours.
