IWC Vintage Portuguese (RG) Desktop Wallpaper  1 Comments


Here is the second and final wallpaper from the 2009 IWC watch collection that piqued my interest. As I have been a Portuguese fan for its history, its beautiful movement and austere design, it was natural that I would gravitate to this piece. Since the launch of the Vintage series, it was hoped by many that IWC would release a white dial model of this new series and they finally did in 2009. This watch is huge with minimal bezel and with a diameter of 46mm - feels very substantial even on the largest of wrists. IWC collectors will have to make a difficult choice to choose between the Vintage Portofino and the Portuguese. If there was one thing I would change was to revert to the old script on the dial that showed "International Watch Co." That would make the watch a true and accurate tribute to the original.
