Next up, we’ve got another classic chronograph, but with a very different vibe. The Portugieser Chronograph (which used to be called the Portuguese Chronograph back when this ref. 3714-46 was released) is one of the most iconic modern IWC watches and for good reason. It’s clean, it’s easy to read, and it’s got style for days. I particularly like this version of the steel model, with the combination of blued chronograph hands and gold numerals and main hands. The watch comes well-worn, but while Crown & Caliber says they’ll polish it for the winner if they so choose, I can’t recommend that under any circumstances – those are Alton Brown scratches you’d be polishing away.
Bidding on this watch starts at $5,100 and you can see the listing here.
