How To Set the IWC Portugieser Annual Calendar

Watchmaking is an art form that’s been practiced for centuries but it was only in 1996 that we saw the first annual calendar wristwatch. The annual calendar complication automatically adjusts the date displayed based on a month so you need only adjust the watch once a year at the end of February. Taking a closer look at this Portugieser annual calendar you will see that at 12 o’clock we have the month date and day in three separate semicircular windows To set the time and the dates all that you need do is wind the watch with the crown in its initial position.
Pull the crown to position 2 to stop the movement – turn the hands forwards until approximately 4 o’clock this ensures that the calendar mechanism is not in the middle of the automatic switching phase Push the crown to the 0 position and pull it back to position 1 turn the crown slowly but continuously anticlockwise the date and the month will now advance in steps set the display to yesterday’s date and turn the crown slowly but continuously clockwise to set the day to set the time accurately to the second it’s best to stop the movement as the second hand passes 60 now turn the hands forwards to the current time if you’re setting the watch in the afternoon you must turn the hands past 12 noon to set the minutes precisely move the minute hand a few strokes beyond the time to be set, then position the minute hand by moving it gently backwards until it’s exactly above the correct a minute stroke this ensures that the minute hand begins to move immediately when you restart the movement finally push the crown back to position 0 to start the movement the entire calendar is now automatically set correctly you should never move the calendar beyond the correct date if this does happen you can pull out the crown to position 2 to stop the movement until the calendar setting matches the correct date once again – this only makes sense if the date has been set a few days ahead alternatively you can manually adjust the date forwards until the display shows the correct date – in order to avoid moving the calendar beyond the correct date I recommend from the 30th of the month you don’t quick set the calendar instead move the date forwards to the first day of the following month using time settings only and that’s it guys there’s no more excuses for not having those annual calendars set to the minute
