This year, IWC Schaffhausen is bringing a touch of summer to your wrist. The Swiss watch manager is launching a new summer edition of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph as part of its “Summer Editions” collection. With a water-resistant stainless steel case, a blue dial, and a resilient blue rubber strap, this sporty chronograph is the perfect watch for the warmer months of the year.
IWC is also launching a special collection of matching fabric straps. These stylish straps are available in fashionable blue and light grey, at all IWC boutiques. These trendy straps are designed to accessorise selected watches from the Pilot’s Watches, Portugieser, and Portofino ranges. They will only be available for a limited amount of time.
Splash Around In Style
Summer has arrived, bringing the promise of pleasantly warm weather, and the temptation to cool off with a refreshing dip in the water. Thanks to its water-resistant stainless steel blue rubber strap, the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is your new perfect companion. Whether you’re going on a sailing trip or any other summer adventure you might have in mind, you won’t be alone.
The blue dial features white counters, rhodium-plated hands, and a red second hand. These produce an overall look that’s deliberately casual, but still stylish.
The 89361 manufacturer calibre with flyback function indicates the measured hours and minutes together on a subdial at 12 o’clock. Meanwhile, the quarter-second scale that surrounds the dial allows for precise measurement of shorter time periods. The transparent case-back in sapphire crystal offers an unimpeded view of the mechanical inner workings of this sporty chronograph.
Accessorize For The Season
Even if you already own a different timepiece from the Schaffhausen Manufacture, you can still add a touch of summer to your wrist.
The second highlight of the “Summer Editions” collection is a special collection of fabric straps. These straps are for some of IWC Schaffhausen’s most popular classic watches. They are available in seasonal designs that use pale blue or light grey colours.
For the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII and Pilot’s Watch Chronograph, there are four new fabric straps. They come in blue, light grey, blue with light grey trim, and light grey with blue trim.
The Portofino Automatic, Portofino Chronograph, and Portugieser Chronograph get two new fabric straps. You can get them in blue, or in light grey.
The straps are only available for a limited time period as accessories to the models listed above. They can be fitted to your watch, whether it’s an old favourite, or a brand new purchase, at any IWC boutique.
