Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen revisits the iconic design of the 1980s and presents the 2017 Da Vinci watches collection, once again with its classic round case.
IWC Schaffhausen – Da Vinci Watches
With the round cases, harmonious forms, rounded crowns and diamonds on single models in the new collection, IWC Schaffhausen establishes a link between the Da Vinci of the 1980s and today’s pure designs without denying the family’s heritage. The twin-frame bezel with the peripheral groove is a reminder of this period. Newly designed, movable horns with curved lugs ensure that straps and bracelets fit snugly round a slim wrist, making the watches more comfortable to wear.
About the watches
- Tailored to women, the Da Vinci Automatic 36 and the Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 are smaller slimmer, and have a more feminine design. Gold cases, diamond-set bezels and alligator leather straps by Santoni in the colours raspberry, bronze, dark brown and dark blue specially developed for IWC underscore the watch’s aesthetic appeal.
- The Da Vinci Automatic, with its 40-millimetre diameter, was designed for both men and women as a classic watch with three hands and features a discreet, elegant design.
- The Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is the first watch from IWC to combine the well-known mechanical chronograph with a perpetual moon phase display on a subdial in a new complication module.
- The name of the Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph in 18-carat red gold alone reflects its unique status: an unusual combination of a classic tourbillon with a retrograde date and a sporty chronograph on a single dial.
“With the new Da Vinci collection, IWC Schaffhausen has returned to the round case that was so successfully established by the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar in 1985. It means we are bidding farewell to the tonneau case and reaffirming our commitment to the classic proportions the brand stands for,” explains Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.
Embellished with diamonds, fashionable straps and bracelets the IWC Schaffhausen’s newest collection is all for the modern woman. We simply cannot wait to witness the unveiling of the watches at the SIHH 2017 next week! Stay tuned for more updates.
