I can’t tell you the reason for that many jewels, other than to avoid wear, but I’m impressed by the fact that it went so long without needing service! Definitely a superb reference!

So many jewels in the Portugieser 2000

The Portugieser 2000, was a limited production made in year 2000 to mark the start of the new millennium, with a completely newly designed movement, cal. 5000. It's the predecessor of the regular production Portugieser 5001, and its most recent version, I...  

Such an awesome port!

Love that dial and bracelet. I also agree, many Jewels for a time and power reserve movement. I sent my pilot chrono to service and it went smoothly.

Thanks. Yes the bracelet, while very inexpensive from Amazon, is quite comfortable and adds a bit of retro flair to the watch.

It is a fantastic movement!

Right. i am not surprised that a chronograph has that many jewels or more, but why for a time only watch.

Really sorry to learn that your watch was stolen. Sonata is a mini-Minute Repeater not to mention all the other functions like big date, GMT, etc.

Good luck with the service. A real marvel!

yeah, i am glad it lasted this long hopefully it doesn't take too long to get it services, but it seems 4 months or longer is the norm these days.

I had a 5001-07 years ago and it was actually my first watch i purchased

New! Also, Nico would post his time to time and for the longest time I didn’t know why I liked it so much (since I had a newer one)… I like the rounded sapphire, different power reserve indicator and lastly the absence of the date!
