Da Vinci Automatic 36: Aesthetics and harmony in 36mm

June 1, 2017 12:45 pm


The Da Vinci Automatic 36 is one of two new models with which IWC Schaffhausen addresses an exclusively female target group this year. The three-hand timepiece is available in gold or stainless steel, with or without diamonds and with coloured alligator leather straps by Santoni.

Diamonds and a gold bracelet

The most exclusive of the Da Vinci Automatic 36 models is the Reference IW458310, featuring an 18-carat red gold case and linked bracelet, together with 54 pure white dia­monds on the bezel. The gold-plated hands and golden appliqués harmonise well with the silver-plated dial, while the blue seconds hand provides a colourful highlight.

The stainless-steel version, set with 54 diamonds with its raspberry-coloured alligator leather strap from Santoni, guarantees its wearer a stylish entrance. The striking colour contrasts with the black displays on the silver-plated dial.

The watch comes entirely in stainless steel, with a mirror-polished link bracelet. The gold-plated hands and appliqués form a harmonious colour composition with the blue seconds hand on the silver-plated dial.

Self-assured elegance

With its dark blue dial and alligator leather strap, this is the ideal timepiece for self-confident women. The cool, understated blue contrasts starkly with the pol­ished stainless-steel case and elegant horns. The small blue date display and the rhodium-plated hands and appliqués blend harmoniously into the overall appearance.

The Da Vinci Automatic 36 references feature an engraving of the “Flower of Life” on the case back. This geometrical figure was the object of numerous drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and represents his unflagging search for mathemat­ical rules for beauty and proportions, thus symbolising the new design approach of the watch collection.
