IWC Schaffhausen has collaborated with British resort wear brand Orlebar Brown on a new Portugieser chronograph. It sports a marine-blue dial with red accents contrasted against the stainless steel bezel for that classic navy aesthetic. Paired with a blue rubber strap with textile inlay, the chronograph is water-resistant up to 6 bar.
Accompanying the watch is a capsule collection of nine resort wear pieces ranging from swim shorts to a coat. “Just like the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph, our collection combines timeless elegance and a love of adventure," explains Adam Brown, founder of Orlebar Brown. One of our favourite pieces is a photographic shorts depicting the Solaris 55 sailing yacht framed by the hills of Porto Rotondo in Sardinia.
