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.
