Lot Essay

The IWC Portuguese was developed because of a customer in Portugal in the late 1930s who wanted a wristwatch with the same size and accuracy as a pocketwatch. IWC complied with this request and the Portuguese was born. The current watch here is a direct descendant line of Portuguese models. Over the years IWC has made many variations of the legendary model. This example features a beautiful pink gold case with silvered dial and pink gold Arabic hour markers. The retail price on this model in 2014 was $16,400. The Portuguese line remains a cornerstone of the modern IWC collection and has been well received in the market by enthusiasts and collectors.
