Pre-SIHH 2017: IWC - Da Vinci Collection

When it was presented in 1985, the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar became a symbol of the watchmaking renaissance characterising those years.

Taking inspiration from that iconic model, IWC is revisiting the entire Da Vinci collection bringing back a sleek and classic round case design in place of tonneau-shaped case that was introduced in 2007.

In fact, 2017 will be the year of the Da Vinci with a brand new collection presented at the upcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (Geneva, 16-20 January 2017).

So far, IWC unveiled three models with a perpetual calendar chronograph to play the role of the star.


As the name suggests, the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph combines two of the most appreciated complications. IWC was successful in designing a dial which offers excellent legibility while delivering an impressive amount of information.


The three sub-dials at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock indicate date, month and day of the week respectively, while a window at 8 o’clock shows the four-digit year display. Being a perpetual calendar, the watch takes into account the different length of the months and even the leap years.

The dial - slate-coloured on the stainless steel version and silver-plated dial on the red gold reference - is strongly characterised by the deep blue colour of the moonphase and chronograph totaliser at 12 o’clock. Blue is also the central flyback chronograph hand operated by two push buttons.


The 43 mm x 15.5 mm case features a double-curved bezel with rounded pushers and crown and will be available in stainless steel (Ref. IW392103) and in red gold (Ref. IW392101). Thanks to the articulated lugs, the watch is comfortable also on smaller wrists.

Water resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet, the case features a sapphire case back which displays the automatic IWC-manufactured Calibre 89630 and its red-gold rotor. Beating at 4 Hz (28,800 vph), the movement offers 68 hours of power reserve.


Completed by highly refined Santoni alligator leather straps, the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph will have a retail price of Swiss Francs 32,000 in stainless steel and Swiss Francs 45,000 in red gold.

IWC also presented two Da Vinci timepieces for Ladies, both housed in 36 mm round cases.

The Da Vinci Automatic 36 (Ref. IW458312) is powered by the self-winding IWC-manufactured Calibre 35111 offering a 42-hour power reserve. The  blue sunburst dial with Arabic numerals includes a date display at 6 o’clock.



The case back is engraved with Leonardo Da Vinci's "Flower of Life", a geometrical figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, that are arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon. It will be offered with a choice of Santoni alligator-leather strap or matching metal bracelet. The retail price will start at Swiss Francs 5,900.


Crafted from red gold and also decorated with the "Flower of Life" on the back, the Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 (Ref. IW459308) features a silvered dial with Arabic numerals and moon phase indicator at 12 o'clock. Matched to a Santoni alligator-leather strap, it will retail for Swiss Francs 14,000. iwc.com
