Four Little Portugeisers (IWC Ref 3531)  3 Comments


Here are three variations of the Little Portugeisers - the Ref 3531 in steel with black dial, steel & white dial with gold markers and hands and red gold with white dial. It measures at only a diameter of 35mm and thickness of 8mm.

The Ref. 3531 shares with the original Portugieser (below) the styling of the dial, which is almost identical in every detail and the sapphire back. What it does not share is the movement. The movement of the Ref. 3531 is a Jaeger LeCoultre calibre 891/2, as currently used in the JLC Master Day Date.

Even though this watch is quite small in today's big watch climate, it still have some sense of presence. While the 3531 is not a limited edition, pieces of it being traded are few and far between. Together with the Portuguese Limited Edition, the 3531 will be remembered as the smaller sibling to the original classic.
