Portuguese 2000 Desktop Wallpaper  0 Comments


This watch had been in my "Top 10 Wish List" for some time and finding one in absolute mint condition was a great pay off for the years of patience. A watch that is an amazing illusion. Its as thick as the current Portuguese Automatic 7 Day Calibre 5001 - yet it looks thinner on the wrist. The almost non existent bezel makes the watch looks much bigger than its 40mm. Launched in the year 2000 with only a limited number of 750 (for rose gold), it was a limited success back then but in time, it found its way into collections of serious horologists.
The original Cal 5000 is considered by many as IWC's most important calibre as it represented the company's direction into producing and refining the world's largest automatic 7 day movement. Yet this watch has a great old school feel to it. A wrist watch that has an old world pocket watch movement.
It was a joy to finally photograph this watch and for fans, download the desktop wallpaper. As always, the condition for downloading and use is to honour my copyrights and not alter, distribute, sell or give away copies of the image - or use it in any way other than as a desktop wallpaper.
