In recent years, IWC has followed the tradition of choosing one of their collections for a complete update announcing replica watches to SIHH. Last year we saw a new series of Pilot watches added to the IWC catalog, but 2017 is dedicated to the complete overhaul of their Da Vinci collection. We brought you the news of the IWC Da Vinci Automatic watch not long ago and, compared to something like the Da Vinci IWC perpetual chronograph Da Vinci, with its renewed circular case, really shows you the range of changes that come into the lineup . With the basic automatic model, however, IWC is attempting to capture the spirit of the first Da Vinci watches of the 1980s while presenting a watch designed and marketed for men and women. Simplicity is also the key when setting up this type of universal lens, and the new IWC Da Vinci automatic models offer enough diversity in the way of strap and dial combinations to appeal to a range of watch lovers.
The IWC Da Vinci Automatic has a size of 40 mm, which by modern standards can often be considered a unisex size. It is thin with a thickness of 10 mm and the proportions are ideal for a watch intended for both men and women (note that this year the IWC Da Vinci Automatic 36 of 36 mm was specifically published for women). I, for example, don't have many problems with a 40mm case and I find that these measures exist somewhere within the weak point in terms of comfort and versatility. It's nice to see IWC push women's watches that aren't exactly delicate or explicitly feminine. They made a similar move last year with replica watches uk the IWC Pilot's Watch Automatic 36 which, funny enough, was the same size as the original Mark XI. But hey, either way, I'm not one who complains about more women wearing IWCs and the brand has certainly grown in their consideration of female demographics and the way they market for them.
I wanted to include the ad image for a previous Da Vinci line here just because it's interesting and fun to see how old it is. He's like a drunken uncle at Thanksgiving. Anyway, I just wanted to share that little bit of irony since IWC is marketing more women than ever this year. Back to the clock ...
The dial is simple, which can mean elegant to some or boring to others. With a layout only for the time and a discreet positioning of the date at 6 o'clock in a track of well contrasted seconds. Both the silver and slate square finishes serve as beautiful backdrops for the polished Arabic numerals and the hands in the shape of a lancet, which are both combined with the respective dials. One thing you will notice is that the frame of the double frame is actually quite pronounced, and its combination fake Tag Heuer with the convex sapphire glass translates into a compact, vintage-inspired look.rolex replica
