I remember when the watch was presented in August 2011 IWC Schaffhausen-CEO George Kern said: “With a history already stretching back over 140 years, IWC sets a new benchmark with this watch. The development of the Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia was an exciting challenge for everyone involved and called for enormous commitment and interdisciplinary cooperation. It is an unparalleled distillation of pioneering work, craftsmanship, engineering and exclusivity. The result is overwhelming and fills us with immense pride.”

  • Wow! Just simply love it!

    And it does Sidereal time also.

    I’ll assume that it can be set for anywhere in the world as that affect sunrise, sunset, the stars and also sidereal time.

  • IWC Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia looks simply awesome!

    Thanks a lot for the lovely pictures and great HD Video!

    Keep it up Alexander!!!

  • Wow what a beauty. I think technically it goes a step further then the UN Astrolabium developed by Mr. Oechslin. This must be at the moment the most complicated wrist watch?
