IWC Explained: In-house movements

Research and innovation play important roles in the development of our in-house movements. But another quality is significant: passion. Join Thomas Gaeumann, who is responsible for IWC’s in-house movement development, as he introduces our movements and explains what makes them tick.

Introduction to IWC’s in-house movements

 

What exactly is a movement? And how does it work? Thomas Gaeumann starts with the basics of movement manufacturing and reveals his favorite in our first video.

 

The Calibre 69

 

It took 8 years to develop the Calibre 69 movement, which is featured in the iconic Portugieser Chronograph. New to the timepiece is a sapphire glass back, allowing you to see this beautiful movement in action. In our second video, Thomas Gaeumann gives a closer look.

 

The IWC Perpetual Calendar 42

 

The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar has been a mainstay of the IWC collection for many years. But now there’s a new member of the family: The IWC Perpetual Calendar 42, featuring the in-house 82650 calibre movement. In our third video, Thomas Gaeumann tells us how his team adapted this much-loved watch to a smaller size.
