The Destriero Scafusia was made in a limited edition of only 125 examples from 1993 to 2001 to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of IWC in Schaffhausen. This watch, containing 750 individually manufactured and hand-finished mechanical parts, is the most complicated wristwatch ever produced in series, with a total of 21 functions and displays. The promotional literature for the piece notes that it is internally equipped with a second century slide to be replaced in 2199 so that the watch can continue to function with no additional accoutrements until the year 2499.
