The first IWC watch to feature a digital display of the time was actually made in the late 19th century. In 1884, a deal between Johann Rauschenbach and Salzburg watchmaker Joseph Pallweber gave replica IWC uk rights to the Pallweber system. The Pallweber system is regarded as the first digital pocket watch movement.
The IWC Tribute to Pallweber Edition “150 Years” is powered by the in-house IWC caliber 94200. It is a manually-wound movement that beats at 4Hz and offers 60 hours of power reserve.
Curiously, IWC didn’t send us images of the movement, but we are told that it will be visible through a sapphire display caseback and will feature an inlaid 18k gold medallion that celebrates the 150th anniversary of IWC replica watches. One can also expect it to be decorated to IWC’s usual high standards.
