The Portugieser Annual Calendar is available with a stainless-steel case and silver-plated dial. Located at "12 o'clock" on the dial, the annual calendar shows the month, date and day in three separate, semicircular windows. Its advance mechanism automatically takes the length of individual months into account and requires manual correction via the crown once a year at the end of February. The rare combination of an annual calendar and 7-day calibre makes this complication from IWC even more fascinating for watch connoisseurs. The arched-edge sapphire glass makes the case look slimmer and underscores the watch's classic elegance. The curved strap horns ensure greater comfort even on a slimmer wrist. On the reverse side, the see-through sapphire-glass back provides an unimpeded view of the exquisite new IWC-manufactured 52850 calibre.

The Portugieser Story The tradition of large pocket watch movements began in the 1930s, when two Portuguese businessmen ordered wristwatches with the precision of marine chronometers. The large wristwatches revolutionized the watch industry and established the trend towards the larger wristwatches so popular today. The iconic design of Portugieser watches, with their imposing size, simple Arabic numerals, slim feuille hands and railway-track-style chapter ring, originates in de 1930's, when it was well ahead of its time. The scale, which is divided up into one-minute sections, makes it easy to read the time precisely and blends seamlessly into the dial. Today, the original, clearly organized dial with its simple design remains an unrivalled style icon.
