This is the last episode of The Man´s Guide to Haute Horlogerie. It features my absolute favorite IWC mechanism: The Digital Perpetual Calendar

Advancing the dials of three displays simultaneously isn’t easy. We couldn’t overcome the laws of physics, but we’ve managed to use them cleverly, stated Stefan Ihnen, IWC´s Technical Director. Do not miss this episode! I invite you to discover it here …

Even if this is not the most complicated mechanism IWC ever conceived it is my absolute favorite one. It combines a chronograph and a perpetual calendar with a digital indication for the date, month and leap year. That’s just gorgeous and in daily use extremely useful, since both, date and month, is perfectly readable.

Discover the IWC-manufactured 89800 caliber, which made its debut in 2009, through our last episode of The Man´s Guide to Haute Horlogerie

 

 

I do also highly recommend you to read my article “FLYING HIGH WITH BIG DATE AND MONTH DISPLAYS” about the Digital Perpetual Calendar mechanism I wrote for IWC and that was published on IWC´s website already June 13th in 2012.
