Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen was founded by an American engineer in 1868, merging for the first time modern technology with prestigious craftsmanship and tradition. Today, IWC creates precision timepieces of lasting value with an emphasis on both design and innovation.

The IWC Portuguese collection's history is a large part of the 1868 Schaffhausen-founded brand. Throughout its 155 years journey, celebrated in 2023, the Portuguese watch is a pillar despite 125 years passed between the first model and its commercial offering.

In 2000, after four years of development, IWC unveiled the Portuguese Automatic with a new in-house movement.

The Calibre 5000 - 38.2 mm wide and 7.2 mm high - incorporated a bidirectional automatic winding system identical to IWC's famous patented system designed in the early 1950s by Albert Pellaton.
