IWC Schaffhausen watchmaking in the sign of the dragon

IWC Portuguese Automatic Edition Dragon Year in the Lunar Year of the Dragon


IWC, one of the world’s leading brands in the luxury watch segment, profits by the good fortune of the sign of the Dragon, a sign so loved in 2012 by the entire luxury industry. The latest IWC masterpiece of Haute Horlogerie at its finest is The Portuguese Automatic Edition Dragon Year with a dragon engraving on the rotor.

The strongly symbolic design of this timelessly elegant watch is paired with an outstanding movement that includes Pellaton winding, a 7-day power reserve and date display. But individuals hoping to secure one of these watches will need to be determined and have luck on their side: the Portuguese Automatic Edition Dragon Year in red gold is limited to 888 pieces worldwide.

At the end of June IWC announced the opening of a new IWC boutique in the Galaxy Macau. Macau is known as the “Asian Las Vegas” , where world class resorts, landmarks and architectures make it one of the world’s premier luxury destinations.
