Going back to the dial, the two watches have applied Arabic markers and polished, rhodium plated leaf shaped hands which match the situation quite well. The Automatic has a sub-dial at 3:00 that signifies power book and yet another sub-dial at 9:00 for continuous seconds. The date window at 6:00 is hard to miss with its own white date wheel position out against the blue dial. I understand that it is tough to match a date wheel into a sunburst dialup, but it is not hopeless, and at this price point, many will want that. The date display is regrettable, in my view, and really detracts from that which I find to be another handsome, attractive watch.The IWC Portugieser Chronograph gets got the 30-minute chronograph counter at 12:00 along with the constant seconds at 6:00. Thankfully, we are spared the date window here. If you’re a fan of this new IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic published a little while ago, you’ll see that this blue dialed sibling doesn’t have the exceptional moment and hour totalizer at 12:00. This, along with the steel caseback is a indication which IWC has shrunk to its Valjoux 7750-derived caliber 79350. This is a peculiar and frankly disappointing choice given the excellent in-house grade 89361 they have available.
