Qatar Today - - BUSINESS -

This year, watch­maker IWC Schaffhausen cel­e­brate the 75th an­niver­sary of the Por­tugieser, an icon within the watch in­dus­try.

To mark the oc­ca­sion, the new col­lec­tion dons a wealth of tech­no­log­i­cal and aes­thetic mod­i­fi­ca­tions and new fea­tures. The newly de­signed an­nual cal­en­dar cel­e­brates its de­but and the per­pet­ual cal­en­dar com­pli­ca­tion with its large dig­i­tal date dis­play is like­wise wel­comed into the watch fam­ily. The newly de­vel­oped IWC-man­u­fac­tured 52000-cal­i­bre fam­ily fea­tures in four mod­els in the lat­est Por­tugieser col­lec­tion. The Por­tugieser an­nual cal­en­dar shows the month, date and day in three sep­a­rate, semi­cir­cu­lar win­dows. The date ad­vance sys­tem takes the dif­fer­ent lengths of the months into ac­count. Only Fe­bru­ary and the leap years need to be cor­rected man­u­ally us­ing the crown. The new IWC-man­u­fac­tured 52850 cal­i­bre has two bar­rels that to­gether gen­er­ate a seven-day power re­serve.
