Quick TakeIWC was able to update their perpetual calendar module to remove one subdial and still show all the necessary displays. The handsome 18 ct 5N gold case really compliments the silver dial with gold markers and hands. The movement can be seen through the case back as well.
DescriptionThe IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 Ref. IW344202 is a testament to the art of fine watchmaking. The watch's 18 ct 5N gold case radiates warmth and luxury, measuring 42.4 mm in diameter. This size ensures a prominent, yet elegantly proportioned, presence on the wrist. The 13.8 mm height of the case is thoughtfully designed to accommodate the complex inner workings of the watch, revealing the intricate 82650 Calibre movement through the see-through sapphire glass back. This feature not only offers a peek into the heart of the watch but also highlights its water resistance of up to 3.0 bar, merging robustness with an exquisite design.

Inside this stunning timepiece lies the 82650 Calibre, an automatic, self-winding movement crafted with the precision and expertise synonymous with IWC. The movement is comprised of 303 components and 46 jewels, operating at a frequency of 28,800 VPH (4 Hz), which ensures accurate and reliable timekeeping. The 60-hour power reserve signifies the watch's enduring performance. The perpetual calendar, mechanically programmed for an impressive 577 years, is a highlight, displaying the date, day, month, and leap year with unerring accuracy. This complication is complemented by the perpetual moon phase display, adding both functionality and a touch of celestial beauty. The brown alligator leather strap, 22.0 mm in width, created by renowned craftsmen, enhances the watch's aesthetic appeal while providing a comfortable fit. The IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 Ref.
