The Appealing New Green Editions of the IWC Portugieser

Green is everywhere... But when it's done right, it has great appeal.

Green is everywhere. There is no escaping the trend, which has been seen in all kinds of watches, in all categories, and all price ranges. Green is the new blue, which was the new black, and maybe purple will be the new green? IWC is no stranger to the colour green. The brand has shown great creativity when applying this colour to different types of watches, such as the bold, monochromatic Woodland green ceramic models. With a drastically different approach to the colour, IWC has released a new pair of green-toned Portugiesers, and we were curious to see them in the metal. And here they are in our latest video review.

Green is undoubtedly one of the main trends in the watch industry today. Or maybe, green is simply becoming a new classic in collections, next to black, silver or blue watches… Time will tell. And admittedly, when it’s done right, green can be cool. IWC is no stranger to the colour green, pushing the concept as far as possible with a full-green watch – case and strap included – with the Woodland Pilot’s watch. But today, it’s about classic design, elegant watches, and green dials added to two of the most discreet Portugieser watches, the entry-level automatic and the most compact of the perpetual calendars.

Even looking at the IWC collection, there are many ways to play with green. With these new models, it’s not about creating a military-inspired camouflage watch; it’s about adding a touch of colour to somewhat austere watches. A touch of “controlled” fun for the classics. And now, a new sunray-brushed dark green dial is offered, combined with stainless steel cases and rhodium-plated accents. What about the colour? Well, check out the video above to discover these elegant, slightly original deep forest green Portugieser models and tell us what you think.

  1. sorry, has IWC actually looked up what a Portuguese rabbit has a taste for?
    I think it’s more the orange carrot. 😉
    too squeeky gadgety for me

  2. Everyone and their mother has a green face out this year but IWC is doing it the best. A not so distant second place are the new Breitling offerings with green face. Nice to see something other than black or blue.

  3. I didn’t like this one on the website, but when I saw the green perpetual at the London boutique I was working hard to figure out how to make it mine. Absolutely stunning!
