New IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar IW503502
IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar IW503502
The annual calendar displays the month, date and day in three separate windows on the dial and requires a manual adjustment just once a year.
The Portugieser Annual Calendar is available with a stainless-steel case and blue dial. Located at “12 o’clock” on the dial, the annual calendar shows the month, date and day in three separate, semicircular windows. Its advance mechanism automatically takes the length of individual months into account and requires manual correction via the crown once a year at the end of February. The rare combination of an annual calendar and 7-day calibre makes this complication from IWC even more fascinating for watch connoisseurs.
The arched-edge sapphire glass makes the case look slimmer and underscores the watch’s classic elegance. The curved strap horns ensure greater comfort even on a slimmer wrist. On the reverse side, the see-through sapphire-glass back provides an unimpeded view of the exquisite new IWC-manufactured 52850 calibre.
The International Watch Company (IWC) is a luxury watch manufacturer headquartered in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Florentine Ariosto Jones, an American, founded the company in 1868 to combine Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship with American engineering techniques to manufacture watch movements and components.
With the assistance of watch manufacturer Heinrich Moser, who built the town’s first hydroelectric plant, Jones rented the first factory in Schaffhausen in 1869. IWC quickly expanded its watch production with the help of local watchmakers, and by 1875 the company moved its factory to a privately owned building.
Johann Rauschenbach-Vogel, a machine manufacturer from Schaffhausen, took over the IWC in 1880 and renamed it Uhrenfabrik von J. Rauschenbach. A year later, in 1881, Johann Rauschenbach-Vogel passed away, leaving his son Johannes Rauschenbach-Schenk to run the company. The brand’s first horological discovery occurred in 1885, when IWC introduced of the world’s first digital watch.
After Johannes Rauschenbach-Schenk died in 1905 his son-in-law Ernst Jakob Homberger took over the company and renamed it Uhrenfabrik von Ernst Homberger-Rauschenbach. Between 1930 and 1945, IWC was one of five watch manufacturers that built observation watches (B-Uhren) for the German air force.
During the 1970s and 1980s, the Swiss watchmaking industry underwent a far-reaching technological change due to the quartz crisis and the explosive rise in gold prices. For the sake of survival, IWC, under the leadership of Director and CEO Otto Heller, developed a line of high-quality pocket watches and set up its modern wristwatch and case manufacturing facilities.
In 1991, IWC director Günter Blümlein founded the LMH Group with its headquarters in Schaffhausen. It had a 100% stake in IWC, a 60% stake in Jaeger-LeCoultre, and a 90% stake in A. Lange & Söhne. In July 2000, Richemont acquired LMH for CHF 2.8 billion.
