Find the Latest IWC Releases at Banks Lyon

IWC

IWC are renowned all over the world for their attention to detail, superb craftsmanship and innovation. The brand has created many different collections over the years, with the Portugieser being one of the most iconic ones.

The Portugieser line was created after two pioneering Portuguese businessmen requested custom-made IWC wristwatches with the highest possible precision. Today, the range remains one of IWC’s most popular, which doesn’t come as a surprise considering its unrivalled quality, striking design and high-level performance. We stock several IWC watches at Banks Lyon, including the latest Portugieser releases.

The Portugieser Collection

Legendary and iconic, IWC Portugieser watches are titans in the horology universe. The collection has always set high watchmaking standards, and the new releases are no exception.

This extraordinary family of watches had its inception in the 1930s and helped to popularise the larger wristwatches trend that we still see today. The unrivalled accuracy of the pieces in the collection, as well as their classic, luxurious design combined with high-tech performance, allow the Portugieser to easily stand out from the crowd.

The collection also showcases several complex innovations, including the tourbillon movement and a celestial chart. This line was ahead of its time in the 1930s and now remains a significant icon in matchmaking.

IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 Watch

The stunning Automatic 40 watch has a timeless appeal that is characteristic of the Portugieser collection. With a clean, organised and open dial, this automatic model comes with the minutes scale and the small seconds in the 6 o’clock position.

The watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre, a robust and high-performance movement with a Pellaton winding system; the components that make up this system are made of virtually non-wearing ceramic, which offers a power reserve of 60 hours. The timepiece has a water resistance of up to 30 metres as well.

The 40mm stainless steel case, the silver-plated dial and the gold-plated hands and appliqués work beautifully together to create a classic aesthetic that stands out no matter where you are.

You can purchase the IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 watch for £6,450 or from £107.50 per month at 0% finance.

IWC Portugieser Chronograph Watch

Another striking model that you don’t want to miss out on. This chronograph is comfortable to wear and capable of fitting almost any wrist due to its 41mm stainless steel case. Despite this size, the thin bezel gives the impression of a larger watch. The dial is just as clear and organised as the previous model and comes with applied Arabic numerals and Feuille hands.

Despite its elegant appearance, the watch is also a sporty addition to the line, meaning it’s not just perfect for day and evening, it’s also a superb choice for any situation or special occasion. This is further showcased in its quarter-second scale and réhaut, which allows for incredible precision.

The dial is silver-plated and has golden hands and appliqués for another touch of sophistication. This chronograph is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69355 calibre in classic column-wheel design, which can be glimpsed through the sapphire crystal caseback.

The IWC Portugieser Chronograph watch can be purchased for £7,050 or from £117.50 per month at 0% finance.

IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph

This nautical sports watch is sophisticated and rugged at the same time. Perfect for anyone seeking an everyday companion they can also take on adventures. With a 6-bar water-resistance, the model is a versatile piece that works well on the water and on land, so you can take it everywhere you go.

The chronograph has a filigree bezel and flat case ring, which add another touch of elegance to the 44mm stainless steel case. The dial comes with the features and aesthetic that is expected of a Portugieser model, from its minute scale to its appliquéd Arabic numerals.

This sporty piece is powered by the IWC-manufactured 89361 calibre with flyback function, and also shows the stopped times combined with a single totaliser at the 12 o’clock position. The watch has a power reserve of 68 hours.

High-quality and with polished and satin-finished surfaces, you can be confident that this model doesn’t just look great, it also feels great on the wrist.

The IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph is available for £11,600 or from £193.33 per month at 0% finance.

IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 Watch

Another fantastic IWC release. This piece is ideal for those who value the right balance of accuracy, performance and design above all. IWC’s perpetual calendar was developed by Kurt Klaus in the 1980s and automatically recognised the different lengths of the months and leap years, a complication that allows for superb precision.

For the first time, the perpetual calendar is integrated into the 82650-calibre movement; its Pellaton winding system is capable of building up a power reserve of 60 hours.

This striking watch displays the date, month and weekday on three subdials at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions, and it also comes with a moon phase and leap year indications. The 42mm stainless steel case is suitable for most wrists and you can be confidence of the dial’s timeless elegance due to its gold-plated hands and appliqués.

If you’re interested in the IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 watch, you can purchase it from Banks Lyon for £19,700 or from £328.33 per month at 0% finance.
