Customized starry sky for TA, peak vision
The Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch is a masterpiece created by IWC after ten years of in-depth research. It has successfully equipped the watch with solar day, star day and astronomical display. This watch combines a series of surprisingly complex devices with new technical features to highlight the extraordinary skills of the brand. In addition, the Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch is the most complicated watch creation in the history of IWC. This watch was created to precisely combine different astronomical displays. When it comes to the attention of this new sophisticated watch, the constant-power tourbillon is not the dial. In addition, the back of the watch is not inferior, neatly displaying the star map, horizon, geographical coordinates, sun day, stellar day, sunrise and sunset display, and day, night and dawn hours in a small space. Even more impressive is that the perpetual calendar is also displayed on the back of the watch with a circular pattern.
The perpetual calendar is connected to the edge of the case back, displaying the current time of the day, the time of the star, and the time of sunrise and sunset, and is accompanied by a 24-hour arrow mark. The central night sky design with a yellow engraved horizon shows the location of the night sky chosen by the wearer. IWC’s engineers use the coordinates of individual locations to calculate the angle of the horizon, and then mechanically control the cams displayed at sunrise and sunset. The wearer not only owns an extraordinary watch, but also can choose the stars to show the night sky in a specific geographical location. The background of the night sky is further equipped with polarization filters, which are displayed in gray and blue at day and night time, respectively.
Each Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia watch is unique. In addition to the personalized star map on the case back, buyers can also choose a series of case materials and dial designs, as well as the color and materials of the strap. In view of the time required for personalization, and the complicated design and installation of watches, buyers need to wait about one year after purchasing. Of course, exclusive customization is always worth the wait.
Extreme perpetual calendar moon phase, the book makes the future
If a sailor Fernando Magellan wears a watch, it must be an IWC Portuguese watch. Because it is the inevitable choice of an educated person with a spirit of exploration and foresight, and full of insights into the future. The perpetual calendar equipped with the watch is intricate and precise, and complements the IWC-made large-scale 5000 movement with a 7-day power reserve. Its perpetual calendar including date, week, month, four-digit year, and permanent moon phase profit and loss display are also the ideal combination of functions for complex watches.
One of the models of the IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar watch (model number: 5032) is equipped with a north-south hemisphere moon phase profit and loss display, which displays the moon phases in the north and south hemispheres on an earth-like background with two moon patterns. It faithfully reproduces the phases of the moon as observed from the northern or southern hemispheres-mirroring each other and adding interest to each other. This unique optical phenomenon is caused by the observation angle and the observation place. This model is also equipped with an auxiliary countdown dial, which can accurately read the remaining days of the next full moon. In addition, this watch is made of white gold with a dark blue dial and silver-plated details, such as those on the small seconds dial or moon phase disc, to create an interesting color contrast effect.
The IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar Model 5023 is also equipped with a moon phase display function, which displays the constantly changing magical night sky between the square inches of the dial. Surrounded by a series of embossed stars, the moon slowly rises from below the semicircular hole opener on the left, appears to be a full moon when it reaches the central position, and then gradually disappears from the right. In addition, this elegant and advanced timepiece has been perfected: a perpetual calendar, a four-digit year display and an automatic winding movement equipped with a Pellerton winding system and power reserve display, which can run continuously for seven days. Should be available.
