In 1986, IWC launched the first Da Vinci watch with a ceramic case. Launched in 2010, the Da Vinci ceramic chronograph watch perfectly combines extremely scratch-resistant, non-magnetic and acid-resistant zirconia and grade 5 titanium (a material that has been used in many fields, including aircraft manufacturing).
In addition to the eye-catching bezel, other components made of titanium include the case back, crown and buttons. Titanium has been polished and silk-satin treated like never before, giving the watch a luxurious look and silky smooth feel.

内部 The case is also equipped with various technological innovations. The movement bracket and the base of the operating parts are directly processed on the ceramic case ring. This process is also the first of IWC. The timer button is equipped with a waterproof putter, which is also made of ceramic. The three-dimensional design of the dial is gorgeous and charming, which is also an innovation of IWC.

The calf leather strap enhances the bright appearance of the watch. The strap is specially treated and its surface texture is very similar to high-tech fabric. The flyback-equipped timer integrates the hour and minute counters into a single totalizer.

The 89360 chronograph movement (and the subsequent 89361 movement) was developed and manufactured by Schaffhausen IWC. The use of a modified automatic winding system sets a new standard for watchmaking.

In addition, the pawl responsible for transmitting the power of the automatic disk in the winding system has also increased from two to four, and the winding efficiency has been significantly improved by 30%. After further development, the movement was named 89800 and was used for the large digital date and month display of the Da Vinci perpetual calendar digital date and month watch.

As a 36mm model of the new version of the Da Vinci series this year, the Da Vinci automatic calendar watch has 5 versions, including a luxury version in 18K red gold and Santoni leather in 18K red gold. The light luxury version of the strap, of course, there are three stainless steel versions. The real shot this time brings to you is the stainless steel case and stainless steel bracelet version.
Also as an entry-level version, metal bracelets are loved by many women. Leather straps tend to be more solemn in many cases, while metal bracelets are more daily and casual, and women may actually prefer metal chains more Because it is easier to wear, there is no need to worry about all kinds of daily bumps.
It is also a very simple dial. The three-dimensional Arabic numerals are really good-looking and classic. At 6 o’clock, a small window displays the current date. The large rings at the center are connected, and they do not conflict in design, but have a kind of smart beauty.
The large-scale movable lugs seem to be generous, but the moment they get started, they will be stunning. The back cover of the watch is also designed with Da Vinci’s interesting 19-round ‘Flower of Life’ pattern, which is a symbol of Da Vinci’s watch design inspired by geometric art.
Compared with other watches of IWC, the Da Vinci series has to be an artistic watch. It does not feature functions, but aims at artistic aesthetics.
