PORTUGEISER PERPETUAL CALENDAR EDITION "150 YEARS"
1300 808 135
The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Edition “150 Years” is available in a limited edition of 250 watches, featuring an 18-carat red gold case, a white dial with a lacquered finish, and blued hands.
The IWC-manufactured 52616 calibre has an automatic Pellaton winding system; with its solid gold rotor and two barrels, it builds up a power reserve of 7 days. The perpetual calendar automatically recognises the different month lengths and the leap years, and needs no manual adjustment until 2100.
The double moon phase display shows the moon phase for the northern and southern hemisphere, and will deviate from the actual course of the moon by just one day every 577.5 years.
The twin barrels are the trademark feature of the 52000-calibre family. They supply the watches with sufficient energy for a 7-day power reserve and drive energy-sapping complications like the annual calendar and perpetual calendar.
The moon phase and its mirror image show the state of the moon in both the northern and southern hemispheres. This gives owners north and south of the equator a view of the moon phase that corresponds to the way they see it.
The perpetual calendar is one of the most fascinating haute horlogerie complications. Originally developed by former chief designer Kurt Klaus and continuously improved since then, it is mechanically programmed for 577 years.
