Catalogue Note

The history of the Portuguese collection dates back to 1936 when two merchants from Portugal by the names of Rodrigues and Texeira, paid a visit to the International Watchmaking Company situated in a small town of Switzerland called Schaffhausen. Despite the trend, at the time, for small wristwatches, the two ordered timepieces that would be as large as a marine chronometer. The main explanation was that Rodrigues and Texeira wanted watches that would be easy to read and, at the same time, highly reliable.

In 1993, to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the company, IWC released the new Portuguese, this time named the Jubilee. The Jubilee was produced as a limited edition, available in cases of platinum, pink gold, and steel. Demand was strong, and the edition sold out quickly. This present lot is a well-kept and desirable set for lovers of this oversized wristwatch. Interestingly enough all three watches are number 93 of their set.
