The world is your mistress, and your greatest affair would be to explore her. Let different cities across the globe seduce you with their beauty and excitement while you carry this unique IWC on your wrist, made for the world traveler inside of you!
The IWC Portugieser Yacht Club Worldtimer can be your wingman as you travel across the world, whether it’s for work or for your luxurious getaways. This IWC has an ideal overview of the different time zones, even if you’re past the International Date Line. The outlying 24-hour ring of the dial is positioned once to current UTC (Universal Time Coordinator) using the crown and runs to local time zones without needing any adjustments, becoming the ultimate travel companion. The special case back is designed as tribute to world travelers, with its imprinted glass of the Northern Hemisphere and its different time zones.
What I find most attractive about this watch is the cool gray color of the slate dial. It could be because I’ve developed a great love for grays, but I feel as if the shades of this IWC are universally attractive. What’s also very distinctive about this watch is its very clean display, leading all the way to the edges of the face. It kind of reminds me of an infinity pool. The marks are very legible and there is enough spacing between the major cities to make it easy to read. It has a good size crown and screw-down locking system nestled nicely between it. The watch is well finished and has an anti-reflective coating.
Personally, my business doesn’t require a lot of travel, nor do I do business in the multi-time zones that are offered in this new 2016 model, but the watch is very functional and easy to set if you have worked with other brands that have similar features.
I love the way the watch feels on my wrist and the continuity of the new alligator strap developed for this series. It’s an amazing fit and suitable for an active enthusiast. Overall, I think the IWC Yacht Club World Timer is a great buy! The only objection I have to this watch is the fact that it’s a bit too thick if you’re a stickler on having watches slide easily underneath your dress sleeves.
The IWC Yacht Club World Timer is well priced and can be found below $9,900.
