The Da Vinci family of the IWC Schaffhausen is a legendary tribute to a legendary icon of innovation, Leonardo Da Vinci. His rough notebooks and sketches have acted as predecessor for most of the essential machinery used today. His treasury of manuscripts containing innovations far beyond his time inspired the IWC in the late 1960’s to name a brand after him, a brand famously referred to as always ahead of its time.
The Da Vinci collection embodies a fusion between understated elegance and complex inner build. A dance of concave and convex forms, it is a watch meant for any occasion, be it indoors or outdoors. These watches complement the eyes as well as the innovator in you.
For this brand of watches to befit the personality it was named after, it must contain awe-inducing features. The Da Vinci collection has been implementing trailblazing innovations almost like pulling out rabbits from a hat, starting right from the year 1969 where the Beta 21 series Quartz movement for wristwatches was introduced for the most accurate precision measurement of its time. In 2000 the collection rose to new heights with the Da Vinci Tourbillon, something IWC is generally regaled for. Another feather in its cap presented by the IWC Da Vinci collection is the distinctive tonneau-shaped cases that all models are styled in. The Da Vinci Perpetual Calender editions by Kurt Klaus are celebrated for their large date and month display. These luxurious time bearers are made in platinum, rose gold and stainless steel. The Da Vinci flyback Chronograph practices perfection in the sports arena by recording the hours and minutes at the 12 o’clock position, making it a favourite among champions. The Da Vinci Automatics provide yet another simplistic design with the date displayed prominently at the 3 o’ clock position.
