BUCHERER BLUE AND IWC LAUNCH NEW LIMITED EDITION TIMEPIECE
Nautical precision meets Swiss watchmaking tradition with the new IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser Chronograph.
After the success of the previous two IWC Portugieser models, Bucherer and IWC have launched a new BUCHERER BLUE special edition Portugieser Chronograph. Limited to 365 pieces, this watch honours its nautical roots with its blue and white colour scheme while celebrating its Swiss watchmaking heritage.
The new timepiece is crafted with special blue-hued elements exclusively for BUCHERER BLUE, redefining casual elegance and once again serving as a testament to the strength of the partnership between IWC and Bucherer. A style icon with a maritime twist, the new BUCHERER BLUE IWC Portugieser Chronograph is ideal for everyday wear, both in terms of style and functionality. Aficionados of the Portugieser Chronograph will appreciate its versatility including the easy to read dial and stopwatch function for minutes and seconds. Sporty and elegant, this chronograph can withstand all manner of adventures on land or water, making it an exquisite masterpiece that can be worn 365 days a year. It is for this reason that the special edition of the Portugieser Chronograph is limited to 365 watches worldwide. And with each one featuring an individual engraving on the case back, this piece is sure to be an object of desire for collectors from around the world.
IWC Schaffhausen’s popular Portugieser watch collection calls back to the precision nautical instruments that seafarers once used to explore the world’s oceans. Boasting a unique design and technology that was ahead of its time, the Portugieser gets its name from two Portuguese clients who approached IWC in 1939 with a request of a wristwatch that had the accuracy of a maritime chronometer. Thus an icon of haute horologerie was born – and will be available in a new look for watch lovers exclusively at Bucherer 1888 boutiques and Bucherer.com.
