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.

These pictures first show you the IWC-calibre 89800 and then in chronological order the IWC-watches meanwhile equipped with it. The next IWC Digital Perpetual Calendar-watch will be a new Aquatimer. Pictures will follow a.s.a.p.
Let me again express my sincere thanks to IWC:
Dear IWC-crew, dear Marion, I want to thank you once again for producing these seven episodes together with me. I hope this was not the last time we co-hosted such a fantastic series of highly educative videos.
