Why We Love it

While the Big Pilot collection might be their headliner, it is their diverse line of exceptional chronographs that IWC is most respected for amongst enthusiasts today.

Whether from their Pilot, Aquatimer, Ingenieur or Portugieser Collections, an IWC chronograph is always a good choice, and in our opinion, a Reference 3714 Portugieser is amongst the most compelling. In production for over 20 years, the 3714 is nothing short of a contemporary classic.

Arguably the quintessential model in the Portugieser family, this 41mm steel chronograph features a non-luminous gloss black dial with beautiful printed 'Arabic' indices and silver 'radial' finished sub registers, a matching feuille handset, barrel pushers, and a domed sapphire crystal. This particular example dates to circa the 2010s and comes fitted to one of IWC's fantastic black alligator leather straps with a signed steel pin buckle.

This lovely piece perfectly straddles the line between dress and sport - a balance not easily achieved, but universally welcomed. Combine its versatility with its iconic design and modern-day IWC pedigree and it is a winner on all fronts!

Overall Condition

The case is in fantastic condition overall showing normal signs of wear consistent with age and use. Gloss black dial with printed 'Arabic' indices and applied 'dot' indices with silver radial subsidiary registers is in as-new condition with matching 'feuille' handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
When an American watchmaker named Florentine Ariosto Jones arrived in Schaffhausen, Switzerland in 1868, he found a city almost frozen in time. Though the Industrial Revolution had swept through America, in Switzerland the situation was very different. Watchmakers still plied their trades by their own firesides, as they had done for centuries. But Jones had in mind something different — an American-style factory where the watches would be designed and assembled in keeping with the old Swiss ways. His methods caught on, and soon there were 196 people employed at his factory.
Though the International Watch Company was founded 35 years before Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first flight, the association between IWC and aviation began just as the age of flight dawned: A pocket watch made by the company in the 1890s found its way into the pocket of one Robert Albert Lotter, a pilot in the German Luftwaffe who served with distinction during the First World War.
Two decades later, in 1936, IWC released a watch that set the standard for pilot’s watch design, the Spezialuhr für Flieger, or Special Pilot's Watch. Another would follow in 1940, the Beobachtungs-ühren (“observation watch”), which spawned an entire model line in IWC’s current collection called the Big Pilot. However, despite the Big Pilot’s current popularity, it was the Special Pilot’s Watch that would lay the cornerstone for IWC’s most iconic line: the Mark series of pilot’s watches.
IWC released the Mark XI in 1948 according to specifications set forth by the British Ministry of Defense. These watches had to be legible, compact, and able to withstand exposure to the magnetic fields emitted by instruments in an airplane’s cockpit. The Mark XI, therefore, had a black dial with large luminous Arabic numbers, while its incredibly robust Calibre 89 movement was encased in an iron cage. (Later, in the 1950s and 1960s, IWC would produce myriad dress watches in steel and gold based upon the Calibre 89 movement, which remain relatively plentiful on the vintage market.)
The Mark XI served as the basis for design inspiration for a robust line of pilot’s watches still being produced today – easily identifiable by their clean, uncluttered dials, robust cases, and outstanding quality.
