IWC Portugieser Automatic 40 iN Salmon

As many trends that come in and out of fashion, the same principle can be applied to certain watch models. IWC Schaffhausen released their first Portuguese in 1939, but since then many iterations in various alloys and colors have followed. Even the name itself would be altered in 2020 with the release of the “Portugieser Automatic 40”, which is now further extended with this salmon dial option.The round 40.4 mm case is made of stainless-steel with polished surfaces and brushed casebands with a width of 12,3 mm. Mounted to the case is a steel bezel with a near mirror-like polished finish.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It includes a steel oscillating weight adorned by the trademark IWC golden medallion.It comes equipped with a knurled setting crown embossed with IWC logo. An elegant design with short stubby lugs that provide a robust and efficient look. All topped by a convex shaped sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 30 meters (100 feet).Time is exhibited on a salmon colored dial with a sun-ray finish and applied stainless-steel Arabic numerals, followed by the characteristic Portugieser railroad motif minute scale in black, circling around the periphery of the dial. Unlike many models in this Portugieser collection that include two sub-dials, due to the smaller canvas this dial employs a simpler lay-out. It only features a large small-seconds on the lower half of the dial with a similar railroad motif ring and a small steel hand.The central rhodium-plated pair of slim leaf-shaped hands are a classy choice that compliment this model and provide an effective reading at a glance. No luminescent elements were added to this dress watch, instead IWC relies on the alloys natural shine.
