Da Vinci Collection, a classic heritage
At the Basel Jewellery & Watch Fair in 1969, the first watch of the IWC series, with its technical appearance: a hexagonal gold case, a gold bracelet, and a long time scale completely overturned aesthetic standards. This watch immediately became a bestseller. However, as global economic conditions deteriorated, the currency value of Swiss francs and the price of gold rose sharply. In order to solve this problem, IWC launched the SL series in 1976, and included the classic Da Vinci watch, the name of Da Vinci also hidden in the series. After a long time in 2017, the brand re-launched this series, and with a unique new timepiece for people who come to watch, ergonomic active lugs and perfect round case highlight the traditional classic design elements Perfectly integrated with today’s watchmaking technology, it has become a refreshing classic watch for 17 years.
The moderately sized 36 mm diameter case, moon phase profit and loss display complication, semi-circular crown and other watch characteristics, show a subtle and luxurious style, simple and generous, rich in content.
