A clearly organized and open dial, with the characteristic minutes scale and the small seconds at “6 o’clock”; IWC’s Reference 325 in the late 1930s established a classic design idiom that has run as a common thread through the history of the Portugieser family ever since. Now the timelessly modern design returns to the collection in a new automatic model with a compact case diameter of 40 millimetres. The Portugieser Automatic 40 is powered by the IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre. 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. This model features an 18-carat 5N gold case, a silver-plated dial, gold-plated hands, and 18-carat gold appliqués. It is fitted with a brown alligator leather strap from Santoni.
