The Da Vinci Automatic 36 comes in four versions: a diamond-set model in 18-carat red gold and three in stainless steel, one of which also has a diamond-set bezel. The inner circle on the dial, the semicircular crown and the round date window at “6 o’clock” form a harmonious ensemble. Thanks to the moving horns, the lugs do not protrude and the strap is held comfortably close to feminine wrists. These watches are equipped with the new three-wing butterfly clasp, to ensure increased wearing comfort. All models house the 35111 calibre. They are tested for water-resistance to 3 bar and have a power reserve of 42 hours.
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 dia¬monds on the bezel. The gold-plated hands and golden appliqués harmonize well with the silver-plated dial, while the blue seconds hand provides a colourful highlight.
The stainless-steel version set with 54 diamonds (Ref. IW458308) 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.
Reference IW458307 comes entirely in stainless steel with a mirror-polished link bracelet. The gold-plated hands and appliqués form a beautiful colour composition with the blue seconds hand on the silver-plated dial.
With its dark blue dial and alligator leather strap, Reference IW458312 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.
If anything, these new developments to the Iwc Watches Ingenieur Replica Heritage set assist round out a previously daunting collection concerning physical size. The Heritage Big Pilot’s 48 and 55, released this past year, are probably unwearable for nearly everyone aside from professional body builders and pilots that intend to wear the watch out a trip jacket. It feels like IWC have sought to make their Heritage pilot’s watches accessible across the board together with the IWC Mark XVIII Heritage currently available in titanium in regards IW327006 but in a mid-level price point and the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage bringing the more haute watchmaking approach in fresh stuff (ceramic is reference IW501004 and bronze is IW501005) and in a dimension at least some people are able to pull away. The IWC Pilot’s Mark XVIII Heritage retails for $4,150 and the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage is priced at $13,200.

All 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. It represents his unflagging search for mathematical rules for beauty and proportions, and thus symbolizes the new design approach of the watch collection.
