IWC's Perpetual Calendar

In the 1980s, IWC’s Kurt Klaus developed a groundbreaking perpetual calendar for wristwatches, showcased in the 1985 Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar. With only about 80 parts, the calendar accurately displays the date, day, month, year in four digits, and moon phase, automatically adjusting for month lengths and adding leap days every four years. Some models feature a century slide, enabling the watch to show the date until 2499 with minimal adjustments, even in centurial years skipping leap years like 2100, 2200, and 2300.
