IWC - Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide
Our team from ZEGG Watches & Jewelery in Samnaun will be happy to advise you.
The tides are caused by a complex interplay of the gravitational and centrifugal forces between the earth, the moon and the sun. On most of the world's coasts there are two floods a day, with exactly 12 hours and 24 minutes between them. The Portuguese Yacht Club Moon & Tide shows on the sub-dial at “6 o'clock” when the next high tide or the next low tide is expected. This is made possible by a reduction gear that translates the regular rhythm of the hours into the constantly slightly shifting chronological sequence of high tide and low tide. The double moon phase display at “12 o'clock” has been extended to show jumping and nipping tides and thus informing about the strength of the tides. A spring tide, a particularly pronounced high water, occurs with a full moon and a new moon. The case made of 18-carat red gold, the blue dial, the gold-plated hands and appliqués made of 18-carat gold underline the maritime character of this watch. The IWC manufacture caliber 82835 has a Pellaton winding with ceramic components and offers a power reserve of 60 hours.
