Caliber 79350 is the successor to the 79240, which it replaced around 2007. The finishing is slightly different; other than that the movements are identical. Based on the Valjoux 7750, IWC's 79350 is a highly reliable workhorse. In comparison to its base, it dropped the small seconds scale, date and day window. It is produced to IWC's exceedingly high standards and only a small portion of the standard 7750 parts are used.
Incomplete (no box, with papers)
The signature round case design of the Portugieser family was initiated in 1939 to honor Portugal's great seafaring explorers such as Batolomeu Dias, Vasco da Gama, and Ferdinand Magellan.
