THE TIME AT IS MOST BEAUTIFUL FORM
PORTUGUESE CHRONOGRAPH AUTOMATIC WATCH.
The Portuguese discovered not only Brazil, the islands of Madeira, the Azores and Cabo Verde, but also determined where the best clocks could be found: in Switzerland.
This was what brought the two Portuguese traders Rodrigues and Teixeira to Schaffhausen in 1936, where they asked the International Watch Company a wristwatch with the qualities of a chronometer.
It would be a big clock, contrary to the fashion then, and, of course, very precise.
Rodrigues and Teixeira also demanded optimum readability, with this in mind, the Portuguese combines the ancient arts with the tradition of watchmaking, very refined.
A STRIKING EXAMPLE OF THE SUCCESS TRUE TO ITS CLASSIC SPIRIT
This preserves the time clock. The Portuguese from IWC Schaffhausen is a mechanical masterpiece, generously sized, whose origins go back centuries.
All watches have in common a Portuguese classic and timeless style, along with an effort by the watchmaking perfection.
Enthusiasts can enjoy not only the skills of engineers and watchmakers, but also the experience of the IWC as manufacturing, and breathe a little history of a great nation.
One thing is certain: Rodrigues and Teixeira also have bought this watch today
A traditional line of nautically inspired precision instruments would be incomplete without a chronograph with a quarter-second scale for precision timing.
The elegant design and moderate height of the case have made the Portuguese Chronograph one of the most sought-after Portuguese models of them all.
The hands, numerals and totalizers are harmoniously integrated into the clear-cut dial.
The tradition behind the Portuguese family of watches stretches all the way back to the precision nautical instruments used by seafarers to discover the world.
Everything is integrated harmoniously on the clearly organized dial: the recessed totalizers, the embossed Arabic numerals and the perfectly proportioned feuille hands for hours and minutes.
