Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Portugieser (or Portuguese) in 2015, IWC revamped nearly the full collection – introducing models, new complications and updating a good part of the existing collection. The 2015 Portugieser Perpetual Calendar still looks familiar, although it was revamped quite drastically compared to the pre-2015 model. The arched glass is one of the most notable changes, although both the case as well as the dial also got a subtle redesign. The automatic movement with a 7-day power reserve and pellaton winding system now sports twin barrels. With this watch, it is of course fitted with the perpetual calendar with the four digit year display, tracing its roots back to the 1985 Da Vinci and its Kurt Klaus-designed module. While the 5034 models sport the signature double moonphase indicator, the 5033 has a traditional moonphase window. The present version (IW5033-01) has a white gold case and an ardoise dial.

IWC is based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and was founded in 1868. Its signature lines are the Pilot’s Watches and the Portugieser, while other famous collections are the Aquatimer, Portofino and the Da Vinci. Many of IWC’s designs display a industrial type of beauty not often found in Swiss watchmaking. The same goes for its movements; while of very high standards, they are finished with an … engineers touch rather than that of an artist. One could very well say that IWC’s approach to watchmaking is more German in nature compared to many of its competitors; the ‘form follows function’ adagio is one held in high esteem in Schaffhausen. Notable watches and innovations created by IWC in the past include the digital ‘Pallweber’ pocket watch, the late 1930’s Portugieser, the 1985 Da Vinci with Kurt Klaus perpetual module, the split-seconds mechanism as designed by Richard Habring and the ceramic Da Vinci and Flieger 3705 – introduced many years before the material became fashionable. IWC also pioneered the use of titanium in wristwatches. In recent years, IWC has had a strong focus on in-house movements with prices rising accordingly. IWC is part of the Richemont group.
