The elegant Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” has a diameter of 42 millimetres. Newly designed articulated strap horns and curved lugs ensure that the black alligator leather strap from Santoni fits comfortably on the wrist. The in-house 89361-calibre chronograph movement with a 68-hour power reserve draws its power via a double-pawl automatic winding system. Thanks to the flyback function, this stainless-steel watch allows ongoing chronograph time measurements to be instantly “deleted” and a new measurement started without an intermediate stop. This year, Iwc Da Vinci Automatic Rose Gold Replica Schaffhausen organized another children’s drawing competition throughout all the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects. The jury chose the drawing by 12-year-old Hou Ye from Shanghai.
This is an IWC altered Selita SW300-1 that works at 28,800A/h (4Hz) also comprises 42 hours of power reserve. It is a robust choice for a movement that is truly serviceable with a trusted history. Solid, inoffensive, and dependable, the movement is essentially enjoy the watch itself. No, it’s not the largest release of SIHH. It’s not a million-dollar split-second chronograph or a deep, highly complicated look in the cosmos either. The IWC Da Vinci Automatic watch is a timepiece that remains true to tradition and supplies a no-frills look into the brand’s past along with their hopes for the future. What IWC brings to the table here is an appealing option for both women and men, and it is going to be interesting to see if its flexibility can dictate a really universal experience for anybody that finds it intriguing enough to pick up. The IWC Da Vinci Automatic can be obtained for a price of $5,400 on leather using a silver-plated dial or $6,400 on a bracelet with slate colored dial.
I’ll go out on a limb and say this: IWC perpetual calendars — notably the Portugieser versions, of course — have for a long time been among those genuinely complicated and expensive watches I could see folks… well, really wear. Not only in fancy airport lounges or even events, but also in absolutely everyday settings, out and about — though likely more so in large cities of world’s rich countries than elsewhere. While that’s a statistically unsubstantiated claim, I’ll stick to it because to observe a watch of such sophistication on real people’s wrists outside in the actual world is not only fascinating but also, in a manner, compels one to see said watch in a slightly different light.

Calibre Family 89000
The 89000-calibre family includes powerful chronograph movements with flyback function, which are used, for example, for the big digital date and month displays or for watches that display stopped hours and minutes on a subdial.
The soft appearance of the applied gold indices contrast rather beautifully against the sharp, angular, pointy hands – a subtle but striking detail. IWC’s some thirty-plus decades of expertise in designing similarly feature-packed dials reveals in how the silver-plated dial lacks some outstanding patterns or texture, serving as a soft-glowing background which allows all other well separated components to stand out, enhancing legibility and easing on aesthetic overload. The year window over 7 o’clock is obviously more for bragging rights than for anything else — whether it had been to create watchmakers’ lives simpler to place the perpetual functions of this movement it could nevertheless be concealed by the dial itself. But IWC even goes so far as to say that they already “provide the century slide bearing the figures 22, 23, and 24 for the years 2200 into 2499 – you know, just if manufacturing technology in 2247 would not allow for the making of this little piece.
