The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is the sportiest watch in a tradition-steeped watch family. At the request of many watch lovers the diameter of the case has been reduced from 45.4 millimetres to 43.5 millimetres. Powered by the rugged IWC-manufactured 89361-calibre movement and water-resistant to 6 bar, the chronograph reveals its sporting qualities with a flyback function, an additional flange with quarter-second calibration for recording short periods of time and an analogue display for longer stop times on a subdial. The Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph has crown protection and is the only Portugieser model to feature luminescent hands and indices. It is available in stainless steel with a slate-coloured or silver-plated dial and in 18-carat red gold, likewise with a silver-plated dial. In the stainless-steel version (Reference IW390503), the slate-coloured dial has been decorated with a sun-pattern finish and, with the flange – a slightly higher rim – has a uniform colour throughout. Thanks to subtle modifications in the design, the chronograph now looks more luxurious and more balanced.
