The Da Vinci Automatic 36 features a striking midnight blue dial and matching dark blue alligator leather strap from Santoni. The interplay between the blue elements and the highly polished stainless steel of the case and lugs creates a fascinating contrast. The slightly recessed inner circle on the dial, the striking dome-shaped crown and the circular date window at “6 o’clock” all add a touch of feminine style to this three-hand timepiece. 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, and the strap is held securely fastened by the new three-wing butterfly clasp. All watches are equipped with the tried and tested 35111 calibre and are water-resistant to 3 bar. With the Flower of Life engraved on the case back, Iwc Da Vinci Herrenuhr Replica pays tribute to Leonardo da Vinci’s tireless search for mathematical rules for beauty and proportions.
On the wrist, and especially when seen from the metal, the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in crimson gold is, without doubt, among the most striking watches of SIHH 2017. As thoroughly disappointing as I personally discovered that the dials on last year’s cheap-n-cheerful IWC Pilot, the “face” of the Da Vinci is the precise opposite in every single way. It’s serious, purposeful, balanced, and its quality of execution fits its price point — attributes that didn’t come to mind when looking at those Pilots. The manufacture caliber 89630 from the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is the first IWC to unite the Kurt Klaus moon phase indication system along with the double chronograph counters in a single sub-dial — talk about a niche, but impressive feat… The moon period here is accurate to not the measly one day at 122 years as most moon phases, but to one day in 577.5 decades.
Unfortunately, the motion can’t be viewed because the watch includes a specially engraved case back – a hallmark of all Laureus special edition watches. In this case, the case back has been engraved with winning drawing at a contest by a mentally handicapped boy from Shanghai, China. It is an adorable drawing and provides a while to this otherwise quite serious-looking watch. Again, I suppose IWC will launch a normal model that has a more typical (likely exhibition) case back. The title tells you the majority of everything you need to know, and what you need to know is that this is a fairly complicated watch. The Da Vinci Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph comes in a 44mm-wide 18k red gold case with a silver-plated dial and contains the exact same articulating lugs which will become one of the defining features of the new IWC Da Vinci collection.
