Defined by meticulous Swiss craftsmanship, IWC watches for men draw on a wide range of inspiration. From sporty chronographs, to classic three handed designs for the office – even professional pilots watch – IWC Schaffhausen timepieces have it all. Whether you’re looking for a clean, bold dial on a robust stainless steel bracelet, or a watch that oozes sophisticated with a striking complication and an authentic leather strap – IWC watches for men are packed to the brim with innovative features to suit every taste and every personality.
You only need to look at a men’s IWC watch to appreciate its complexity and its beauty. The watches feature in-house developed movements which have been independently manufactured at the Swiss company’s head quarters and assembled by hand. These meticulous designs span from the popular IWC Portofino watch to the elegant IWC Portuguese watch. Whether looking for something to team with smart evening attire, or a simple day-to-day timepiece which merges the gap between sophisticated and informal - IWC Schaffhausen watches for men cater for every possible occasion.
The Portugieser Automatic watch is a great men’s IWC watch. The design consists of a beautifully symmetrical layout with a power reserve display at 3 o’clock and a 60 second sub scale at 9 o’clock. The 42.3mm IWC Portugieser watch with brown leather strap and anthracite dial for example, is powered via the stealth-like 52010-calibre automatic self winding movement. It offers round-the-clock precision thanks to an impressive 7 day power reserve, making it the ideal companion for gentlemen who travel for work, or the dedicated businessman. On the other hand, the IWC Portofino men’s watch range is entirely refined and perfect for a daily instrument for dressing on the wrist. The designs vary from clean, simple dial layouts to chronograph watches equipped with a stainless steel mesh bracelet and a day date feature. The 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock location are often dressed in Roman numerals, and the front of the cases, as with all IWC watches, are equipped with sapphire crystal glass to protect the dial from scratching and undesirable reflection.
IWC watches for men are also designed using a beautiful selection of materials. Some bezels are dressed in 18ct red gold, like the IWC Big Pilot’s Spitfire Watch. This design features an oversized crown, developed for the original pilot’s watches to facilitate ease of handling, and a state-of-the-art in-house developed movement. The timepiece is executed on an authentic brown calfskin strap with matching 18ct red gold buckle for a vintage-inspired look. Powered via the 51111 calibre – any gentleman is sure to turn up to all his important appointments on time. Lastly, IWC Aquatimer watches are an ideal companion for those gentlemen looking for a robust, highly legible timekeeping instrument. Perfect for the sporty gent or the deep sea diving enthusiast, as well as the amateur swimmer - these iconic watches are equipped with sophisticated features to offer the very best in functionality. The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph, despite its trio of subdials, remains incredibly easy to read the time from in low-light conditions, thanks to chunky central hands and bold baton indexes.
