Quick TakeBeing owners of an IWC perpetual calendar watch, we have a soft spot for them in our hearts. This Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 features a slightly different version of IWCs perpetual calendar with no moonphase or year display. They were able to remove one subdial doing this and also added a leap year indicator. The stainless steel case compliments the silver dial nicely as well.
DescriptionThe IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 Ref. IW344203 is a marvel of modern watchmaking, merging elegance with complex horological innovation. Encased in a stainless steel body, the watch spans a 42.4 mm diameter, offering a commanding yet sophisticated presence on the wrist. The height of 13.8 mm is not just a dimension; it's a space that houses the intricate and advanced mechanics of this exceptional timepiece. The see-through sapphire glass back is more than a functional element; it's a portal into the heart of the watch, revealing the complexity and beauty of the 82650 Calibre movement. This feature not only displays the inner workings but also underscores the watch's balance of durability and elegance, with a water resistance of up to 3.0 bar.

At the core of this timepiece lies the 82650 Calibre, an IWC-manufactured movement that is a testament to the brand's commitment to precision and innovation. This automatic, self-winding movement comprises 303 components and 46 jewels, operating at a frequency of 28,800 VPH (4 Hz) to ensure accurate and reliable timekeeping. The 60-hour power reserve is a nod to its endurance and efficiency. The perpetual calendar, a highlight of this watch, is an intricate mechanism that accurately displays the date, day, month, leap year, and moon phase, requiring adjustment only once every 577 years. This complex feature is not just a technical achievement; it's a work of art that reflects the timelessness and sophistication inherent in the IWC Portugieser collection. Complementing this intricate functionality is the black alligator leather strap crafted by Santoni, 22.0 mm in width, which adds a touch of luxury and ensures a comfortable fit. The IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 42 Ref. IW344203 is more than a watch; it's a symbol of enduring elegance and horological mastery, appealing to those who appreciate the fine art of watchmaking.
