The IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 5021 was introduced in 2003, pairing IWC's self-winding 7-day movement with Kurt Klaus' ingenious perpetual calendar module. The latter was first seen in the 1985 Da Vinci and adapted to fit the larger dimensions of the 7-day movement. It featured a case of 44.2mm with sapphire glasses both front and back. One of its signature elements was the 'Double Moon' moonphase display, allowing its owner to read the moonphase in both the southern and northern hemisphere. The 5021 was accompanied by the slightly smaller 5022 ('Single Moon') in 2006.
This reference, the 5021-19, features a rose gold case with black dial. It was introduced in 2006. Between 2006 and 2007 the 5021-19 had the 51612 calibre. This changed between 2007 and 2012 when it was powered by the 51614 calibre.
