The moon phase display on the Portugieser Perpetual Calendar diverges by just 1 day in 577.5 years from the actual phase of the moon. In the model with the double moon display, the moon phase and its mirror image show the state of the moon in both the northern and southern hemispheres. The double moon model comes with the railway-track-style chapter ring typical of the Portugieser, while the designers have transformed the entire moon phase display into a star-studded night sky, so that the moon and stars appear to hover in infinite space. The elegant timepiece leaves virtually no wish
unfulfilled: perpetual calendar, window showing the year in four digits, 7-day automatic movement with Pellaton winding and a power reserve display. This timepiece is powered by an IWC-manufactured
movement from the 52000-calibre family, featuring a solid red gold rotor and blued screws. The 18-carat white gold watch has a blue dial and arched-edge front glass and comes with a black alligator leather strap.

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.
