    With IWC undated International Guarantee Card, instruction manual, original fitted presentation box and outer cardboard packaging.

    The present Portuguese Hand-Wound is number 41 of the limited edition of 500 examples. It furthermore appears to be in new old stock condition.

    The Portuguese Hand-Wound from the vintage collection is an homage to the original Portuguese model from the 1930s and its purist design: arched-edge front glass, the dial with railway-track-style chapter ring and feuille hands and small seconds at 6 o’clock.
