Inspired by the Grey Dial IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Replica Watch created in 1985 by Kurt Klaus IWC’s master watchmaker and inventor, this new watch is simply gorgeous in the metal. Fitted with an anthracite grey dial with applied Arabic numerals, this perpetual calendar chronograph features a four-digit year display with three rollers between 7 and 8 o’clock.
The IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Replica Watch dial features a 12-hour monocounter chronograph register with moon phase indication at 12 o’clock, date indicator at 3, month indicator with overlapping running seconds at 6 and day of the week at 9 o’clock. All new watches in the IWC Da Vinci line will feature cylindrical crowns and pushers, strap attachments with moveable lugs without looking or feeling dated, lancet-shaped hands, Arabic numerals and repetition of round design details on dial and alligator straps by Santoni.
Today, we bring you our live pictures of the new IWC Da Vinci Replica Watch straight from the SIHH 2017 in Geneva. After receiving a major facelift in 2007 and another one in 2009, the Da Vinci Collection from IWC Schaffhausen has returned to the round case that was so successfully established by the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar in 1985 and saying goodbye to the tonneau-shaped case.
While the dial layout in the new IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph ref. IW392101 seems a little too busy, reading the different indications is not that much of a challenge.
Available in stainless steel anthracite dial IWC Replica Watch or 18K red gold opaline dial with a 43 mm case, this is the first watch from IWC to ever combine a mechanical chronograph with a perpetual moon phase display on a chrono subdial at 12 o’clock.
