The IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Replica Edition is a personable and practical ownership proposition. Its blue dial and round case prove a seductive combination.The case once resembled a truncated lozenge which tended to polarise opinion. Today, the Da Vinci collection comprises solely of round watches and, in my opinion, proves more palatable to a greater watch buying audience.
The blue dial has a coquettish quality, drawing the eye close to the sapphire crystal. The rich hue is exquisite and possesses an appearance like no other. The allure of the dial is heightened with a sunray motif emanating from the fulcrum of the dial. Each radiating line takes its turn to engage with light and bask in its gaze.
Faceted, lancine hour and minute hands gracefully circumscribe the dialscape. Their silver tones match the Arabic numerals which indicate the hours. Both the hands and indexes evince a classical character. Indeed, with the IWC Da Vinci 1:1 Replica Watches there is a notable absence of modernity. Every element of the dial composition is traditional, save for the intoxicating blue dial tincture.
This model featured the 89361 calibre and, more pertinently, a subdial combining both hour and minute registers. The IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” employs the same movement and incorporates the same style of totaliser at noon.
A small seconds display is positioned above 6 o’clock and incorporates a date display using black text on a white date disc. Both subdials are snailed, arranged along a common north-south axis and share the same diameter. Everything is balanced and symmetrical. The seconds display, consistent with Cheap IWC Replica traditional pilot’s watches, is capable of being hacked, allowing the wearer to synchronise the watch with a reference clock.
The central chronograph seconds hand kisses the rehaut allowing the wearer to read-off ¼ second integers.
Some dials merely display the time and others impart information with eloquence. The dial of the IWC Da Vinci Replica Watches falls into the latter category.
The Quality Replica Watches 42mm stainless steel case is highly polished. Rather than being integrated, the lugs are affixed to a protruding section from the case. As a result, the lugs appear visually lighter and seemingly delicate. However, close examination of the case reveals a welcome solidity to its construction.
The case of the IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” is deep, measuring 14.5mm. Nevertheless, sartorially astute suitors need not despair, the watch will readily nuzzle beneath a stylish shirt cuff.
Consistent with previous models, this version of the IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Swiss Replica Watches has a blue dial and features an engraved caseback, depicting ‘the winning picture in the “Time Well Spent” drawing competition’. The inscribed motif exhibits a wonderful childhood innocence. However, despite this aesthetic playfulness this remains a serious watch with all the qualities this implies.
The 89361 Calibre is an ‘IWC-manufactured’, automatic movement featuring a bi-directional winding system. The movement is endowed with a ‘flyback function’ allowing the wearer to stop, reset and start the chronograph with one squeeze of the pushpiece at 4 o’clock. This feature proves ideal when timing successive intervals and usually attracts a price premium.
Owing to the aforementioned solid caseback, it was not possible to appraise the finishing of the movement, however, images of other movements within the Calibre Family 89000 reveal circular Côtes de Genève motif and an openworked oscillating weight.
The balance has a frequency of 28,800 VpH (4Hz). It is a Glucydur ® type balance. Luxury IWC Fake Watches does not specify whether the balance is computer poised with a laser cut on the underside of the balance wheel rim, however, the Swiss watch firm does specify ‘high-precision adjustment screws on the balance rim’.
