The tradition behind the Portuguese family of watches stretches all the way back to the precision nautical instruments used by seafarers to discover the world. A traditional line like this needs a chronograph with a scale calibrated to an accuracy of a quarter of a second. The elegant design and moderate height of the case have made the Portuguese Chronograph one of the most sought-after Portuguese models of them all. Everything is integrated harmoniously on the clearly organized dial: the recessed totalizers, the embossed Arabic numerals and the perfectly proportioned feuille hands for hours and minutes. The chronographs in cases with the warm appeal of 18-carat red gold exude a distinctive luxury. The slate-coloured dial with its shimmering sun-pattern finish provides a discreet contrast to the deep black counters, whilst the blued hands for periods of stopped time provide a colourful highlight to the silver-plated dial.
