Blue is the new black! Discover two new IWC Schaffhausen Portugieser

Blue is the new black!

Something I am aware of since a while, as many of you for sure have noticed before, and something I personally very much like and support.

Still I believe there are too many black dials out there, to many black straps and even to many entire black watches.

Blue is THE elegant alternative, a color that fits perfectly with a sporty-elegant wrist-watch. 

IWC was a pioneer selling watches with a blue dial. The Schaffhausen based manufacturer started doing this 50 years ago.

It was G√ľnter Bl√ľmlein who brought back the trend “blue” in the 1990s. At the time being all IWC watches with a platinum case had a blue dial.

Today I can show two IWC Portugieser that have never before been manufactured before in the combination of a blue dial and a stainless-steel case.

The is powered by the IWC-manufactured 52010 calibre. The 42,3 mm 7 14,2 mm watch is wound by the Pellaton automatic winding system and has a 7-day power reserve (168 hours). The¬†display at ‚Äú3 o‚Äôclock‚ÄĚ indicates how long the watch will still tick.¬†The small seconds subdial is positioned at ‚Äú9 o‚Äôclock‚ÄĚ. A very cool watch!¬†The stainless-steel case and the rhodium-plated hands provide a perfect contrast to the deep blue (I like the blue!) of the dial.

The ranks among the real iconic watches of IWC. Now the chronograph is available with a blue dial for the first time. With a look based on the timeless design of the Portugieser watches from the 1930s, this 40,9 mm / 12,5 mm chronograph will look good on any wrist Рwoman or man. The stainless-steel case and the rhodium-plated hands perfectly match with the blue dial. The chronograph is powered by an internal modified chronograph calibre from ETA.
