With its smaller case in red gold measuring only 36 millimetres in diameter, the moon phase complication, dome-shaped crown and exquisite materials, the Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 is the perfect companion for those who appreciate understated luxury. The classic moon phase display with the dark blue night sky and gold or silver moon and stars is an attractive and eye-catching feature on this three-hand watch. The horizon stretches to the recessed inner circle, which lends the silver-plated dial a sense of structure and depth. Articulated lugs ensure that the horns do not protrude from the case. The watch fits perfectly on the wrist, making it extremely comfortable to wear. With the Flower of Life engraved on the case back, Iwc Da Vinci 3728 Replica pays tribute to Leonardo da Vinci’s tireless search for mathematical rules for beauty and proportions.
N recent years, IWC has followed the convention of choosing one of their selections for a complete refresh that they announce at SIHH. This past year, we watched a varied new set of Pilot’s watches inserted to the IWC catalog, but 2017 is all about the complete overhaul of their Da Vinci collection. We brought you news of this IWC Da Vinci Automatic watch not long ago and, when compared to something like the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, using its revamped circular instance, it really shows you the assortment of changes coming into the lineup. With the basic automated model, though, IWC is attempting to capture the soul of their earlier 1980s Da Vinci timepieces while introducing a watch that is made for and marketed to both men and women. Simplicity is also key when you set that kind of universal target, and the new IWC Da Vinci Automatic versions provide enough diversity in the way of strap and dial combinations to appeal to a assortment of watch lovers.
It will place a question in my head, however – what designer believed that this was the right positioning to set the date window in? It’s simply jarring. Not that it’s at 6 o’clock, but the fact that it doesn’t follow with the circle that the numeral indices are generating. Even when they had aligned the top border of the date window with the line drawn from the tops of the 7 and the 5, I could maybe let it slip. But this… this doesn’t look to me like the refinement I hope of a luxury watch. It causes it to look like a situation that has been fitted with too little of a motion, leading to the date window being too much inward. While I am certainly a fan of classic dress watches, and I do feel that IWC has had some interesting designs, for my personal tastes the new IWC Da Vinci Automatic leaves me somewhat ambivilent. Who knows, maybe that date window position is something carried over from another vintage reference, but that’s a detail that should have perhaps been redone. On the other hand, if detail not disturb you, you will have the ability to pick up your own IWC Da Vinci Automatic for $5,400 on leather with silver dial or $6,400 to a bracelet with slate dial.
