The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Edition “150 Years” Story

With the Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Edition “150 Years”, IWC combines the legendary perpetual calendar from Kurt Klaus with a tourbillon on the dial for the first time. This masterpiece of watchmaking is available in a limited edition of 50 watches. It has an 18-carat red gold case, a white dial with a lacquered finish, and blued hands. The watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 51950 calibre, an extension of the 51900 calibre with the addition of a perpetual calendar. To make the tourbillon visible at “12 o’clock”, the designers opened up the calendar advance ring and integrated the moon phase in the month display at “6 o’clock”. This tourbillon complication is made up of 82 individual components and weighs just 0.635 grams. With its solid gold rotor, the automatic Pellaton winding system generates a power reserve of 7 days.

Calibre Family 50000

It needs winding only once a week: the 50000-calibre family features the efficient Pellaton pawl-winding system with a 7-day power reserve and a Breguet spring for maximum precision.

Moon phase display

IWC’s moon phase displays are not just aesthetic works of art – they are extremely precise and diverge from the actual phase of the moon by just 1 day in 577.5 years.

Perpetual calendar

The perpetual calendar is one of the most fascinating haute horlogerie complications. Originally developed by former chief designer Kurt Klaus and continuously improved since then, it is mechanically programmed for 577 years.

Tourbillon Mystère

Watch lovers are particularly fascinated by the unusual arrangement of the “flying” tourbillon, consisting of 82 parts, against a deep black background, creating the illusion that the filigree cage containing the balance is rotating in mid-air.
