Front and back of the rare IWC Siderale Scafusia

The IWC (International Watch Company) is a renowned Swiss watch-maker that has managed to cement its position as a top creator of luxury watches. The company is renowned for manufacturing the highest quality watches that comes with the most intricate technical design. IWC launched its first digital watch in 1885 and thereafter it has released a number of luxury watches that managed to raise the eyebrows of even the staunchest of critics. The watch that deserves special mention is the IWC Siderale Scafusia (released in August 2011) which is valued at a whopping USD 750,000. Believe it or not, it took a decade to produce this masterpiece which has seen the collaboration of famous experts like Jean Francois Mojon & Ben Moore.

The Siderale is a very complex wristwatch; in fact, it is arguably the most complex watch ever made by any manufacturer in the world. The wristwatch has amazingly combined a state-of-the-art perpetual calendar and an astronomical display with a massive constant force tourbillon. This oversized tourbillon guarantees an accurate and precise rate for at least 48 hours although the watch has a full 90 hour power reserve. Although a majority of people would fall in love with the tourbillon, it is the caseback which is the real star of the show. It actually accounts for everything that is so fascinating about this watch - the perpetual calendar, celestial chart, display for sunrise & sunset, coordinates of a chosen location and indications for day, night and even twilight!

The watch is very unique as IWC has successfully managed to create an accurate portrayal of the night sky in the watch. The vivid colors, the inch-perfect accuracy in matters of date keeping and the ease of use has made this watch a real collector's item. Another important thing to note although it is not exactly a limited edition watch but technically speaking the watch is quite limited by its very nature. What is meant here is that each of the watches is custom built only for a particular client who resides in a particular location. The client will actually choose the very coordinates around which the Siderale's universe will rotate. The client also has the liberty to choose the dial and metal color combination from a wide range of options.

There is no doubt that the IWC Siderale Scafusia is indeed a very expensive watch. But it is also a very important watch it forms the crown jewel of IWC collection for many years to come. It is that type of watch from which innumerable new pieces can be derived in the coming years.

While we all may not have the means to purchase the ultimate IWC watch there are many affordable styles of IWC to choose from. So if you are looking for a new, used or vintage collectible IWC you may just find one for sale below that gives you entry into the lovely world of IWC watch ownership.
