Just announced, (or at least within the last week), the new Portugieser Yacht Club Worldtimer from IWC. Its available in 18-carat red gold (Ref. IW326605) and stainless steel (Ref. IW326602). The 18k red-gold model features a silver-plated dial, while the stainless-steel model has a slate-colored dial.
Thanks to its 24-hour ring, the Worldtimer function enables easy legibility of 13 time zones including the current Universal Time Coordinated (UTC). The 12 place names on the external city ring each represent a time zone. When passing through a time zone, the hour hand can be adjusted forwards or backwards in one-hour steps also when crossing the International Date Line.
Designed for world travelers, the limited-edition 45mm timepiece measures 14mm in thickness and is powered by an automatic movement with an ample 42-hour power reserve. The dial features a railroad minutes track with applied markers for each city's timezone (plus UTC time). The bi-color 24-hour ring circles the inner-portion of the dial, finished with sunburst guilloché in the stainless-steel version, and in matte off-white in the red-gold version.
The Worldtimer will be limited to 100 pieces for the 18 carat red gold model; while the stainless steel version is limited to just 500 pieces. The red gold Worldtimer, and the stainless steel Worldtimer will retail at US$26,200 and US$10,400 USD respectively.
