PORTUGIESER YACHT CLUB MOON & TIDE
A complex interplay of gravitational and centrifugal forces between the earth, the moon and the sun causes the tides. On most of the earth’s coasts, there are two high tides per day, always precisely 12 hours and 24 minutes apart. The Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide indicates the expected times for the next high and low water on a subdial at “6 o’clock”. This is achieved by a reduction wheel train which translates the regular rhythm of the hours into the constantly shifting time sequence of high and low water. The double moon phase display at “12 o’clock” has been enhanced to show spring and neap tides and therefore also informs about the strength of the current tides. Spring tides, which bring particularly high water, occur at full moon and new moon. The 18-carat 5N gold case, blue dial, gold-plated hands and 18-carat gold appliqués underscore the maritime character of this timepiece. The IWC-manufactured 82835 calibre features a Pellaton winding system. Fitted with ceramic components, it boasts a power reserve of 60 hours.
