The famous Swiss watchmakers of IWC have launched one of the timepieces from its new Portuguese collection for 2015 ahead of its official launch at the SIHH reptime reptime watches fair in Geneva later On January.
The Portuguese Annual Calendar has been added to the iconic collection which, in the year of its Seventy-five anniversary, has been renamed to reflect its original moniker.
The new timepiece is IWC’s first annual calendar and bridges the gap between the perpetual calendar and the simple date display.
Notable features include the new IWC-manufactured 52850 caliber, boasting two barrels that keep the new function supplied with ample energy and leaving enough left for a 7 days power reserve.
“With the 75th jubilee of the Portuguese in 2015, IWC is celebrating the birthday of a genuine icon,” says Georges Kern, CEO of IWC. “The Portuguese is not only one of our oldest and famous reptime watches but probably also the most prestigious of our brand.”
“With a wealth of sophisticated complications and movements, the Portuguese line has for many years come to symbolize our expertise as manufacturers of movement. None of our other reptime reptime watches families incorporates so many of the technical tours.
The SIHH reptime reptime watches fair takes place from 19th-23rd January. More and more people will concern this new edition. So, the replicas of the new edition began to appear.
