The best breakfast invitation in the world? It includes a very wet boat ride on Lake Zurich, a preview of the new exclusive collection of the Portugieser Yacht Club Chronograph Edition Boesch, a chat with press and bloggers and…finally lunch too! Both on land and water, trying the new IWC watch on and seeing where Boesch motorboats are made got everybody interested, amused and…wishing they could have a Portugieser Yacht Club chronograph on their wrist.

The New Collection You Haven’t Seen Anywhere Yet

So how does this new watch look like in detail, and what’s the idea behind it?

Swiss boatbuilder Boesch and luxury watch maker IWC Schaffhausen  both stand for tradition, precision, perfection, and have made international names for themselves with their high level of quality craftsmanship. This year they decided to cooperate for the second time and produce an exclusive collection that will be available in a limited number of 150 pieces.

With its mahogany-coloured dial, mahogany emblem and, on the inside of the glass back cover, a stylized ship’s propeller, the elegant sports chronograph is instantly recognizable. Its rugged strap is made of rubber with an alligator leather inlay that makes it particularly comfortable to wear. This elegant, sporty chronograph is the perfect companion on land or water and, of course, on any Boesch motorboat.
