In 2000, after we all survived the Millennium Bug, IWC decided to celebrate by releasing their first limited edition Portugieser. Ok we made the Millennium Bug bit up BUT, they did release this watch to celebrate a rather large milestone. Inside this watch lies the cal 5000 movement. This was the first movement IWC solely designed and built in house. On top of that, the movement boasted a 7 day power reserve, but rumour has it that the movement could run for nearly 10 days on a full wind. Either way, its pretty impressive for a movement thats nearly 25 years old. 

The watch came in Platinum (250 examples), Rose Gold (250 examples) and Steel (1000 examples) all of which are individually numbered on the left side of the case. 

This example, sold in the UK has seen very little wear in its 24 years. Bought new by the previous owner, it was a forgotten watch in his collection. The watch case has no dings or visible scratches other than handling marks on the polished surfaces. The plexi glass is scratch free and the original leather strap, bar the creases around the buckle is in great condition. 

The movement has been checked and its still running perfectly at +2. 280 amps with a 0.1 beat error. 

The watch comes as a complete set with its booklets, box, guarantee card and cloth.
