IWC Schaffhausen welcomes the year of the dragon with a limited edition Portugieser Chronograph with a burgundy dial

The classically elegant Portugieser Chronograph Year of the Dragon features a 41-millimeter stainless steel case, a burgundy dial and contrasting gold hands and appliques. Limited to 1,000 pieces, this watch impresses with its majestic dragon-shaped rotor, visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.

True to tradition, IWC Schaffhausen welcomes the Lunar New Year with a special edition watch. February 10, 2024 marks the beginning of the Year of the Wooden Dragon. According to the Chinese calendar, such a combination occurs only once every 60 years. People born under the sign of the dragon are considered energetic, strong, self-confident, gifted, intelligent and generous. Dragons initiate great things and keep them going. The Year of the Dragon promises luck, prosperity and economic success.

“Since 1998, the Portugieser Chronograph has embodied the dynamic and sporty side of IWC Schaffhausen’s acclaimed Portugieser collection. Thanks to the dial layout with vertically arranged counters and the precision quarter-second scale, it has become one of our most coveted designs. We are convinced that it is a fitting model to welcome the Year of the Dragon,” said Peter Lao, General Manager of IWC Schaffhausen China.

The Portugieser Chronograph Year of the Dragon (Ref. IW371629) features a 41-millimeter stainless steel case, a burgundy dial and gold-plated hands and appliques.

Bordeaux is a lovely shade of red, symbolizing the vibrant color of fire, which is traditionally used to welcome the Lunar New Year in China and promises longevity and luck. The chronograph is powered by the IWC-manufactured caliber 69355, a robust and precise mechanical chronograph movement with a classic column-wheel design. A glance at the movement through the transparent sapphire caseback reveals another highlight: the gold-plated rotor of the automatic winding system takes the shape of a beautifully detailed dragon. In addition, the back ring of the box features an engraving of “2024 YEAR OF THE DRAGON”. The Portugieser Chronograph Year of the Dragon comes with two straps: a black calfskin strap and a burgundy rubber strap that allows the wearer to choose between two different looks. A butterfly closure ensures excellent wearing comfort.

The Portugieser Chronograph Year of the Dragon is limited to 1,000 pieces and is available immediately through IWC boutiques, authorized retailers or online at IWC.com. In addition, the watch can be registered in the My IWC Care program and benefits from a 6-year extension of the standard 2-year international limited warranty.
