IWC ranks amongst the best in the world and the IWC Portugieser replica remains one of their most quintessential lines. This particular range is also an absolute rock star of the horological world at large, preceded by decades of underdog status. From its elegantly proportioned case to the stunning in-house calibres, the watch has more than stood the test of time. If anything, time itself had to catch up to this one. Today, the collection still employs an impeccable dial layout, with large Arabic numerals, a thin bezel, and at least one subdial.
The IWC Portugieser Automatic is a great watch. Elegant and refined yet contemporary at the same time. Not to mention the fact that at 42.3mm its case size is more reasonable than some of its larger peers. Granted it’s not the thinnest at 14.1mm, but you can still get away with sliding it under a shirt cuff. Plus, the Portugieser is one of IWC’s most recognisable and iconic lines. The current series of the Automatic 7-Day is the Ref IW5007, launched in 2015.
