The Grande Complication is one of IWC's most exclusive timepieces with production limited to just 50 watches a year. Consisting of 659 mechanical parts, 21 functions and displays, a perpetual calendar for the next 500 years and a perpetual moon phase display made of polished goldstone, this watch is a tour de force.
