Good Quality IWC – Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph Replica Guide Trusted Dealers
The Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph’s precious 44mm red gold case with golden push-buttons and lugs has a carefully balanced appearance. The harmonious arrangement of the three complications on the silver-plated dial, with the chronograph function at “12 o’clock”, follows the typical Iwc Davinci Chronograph Watch Replica pattern.
The most conspicuous feature of the watch is the flying tourbillon. Its cage is bearing-mounted only at one end, on the underside, and is not connected to an upper bridge. The tourbillon also features a technically complex hacking function that guarantees down-to-the-second accuracy when setting the watch. When the crown is pulled out, two levers grip the balance rim and block the mechanism consisting of the balance, wheel train and hands. New geometry in the pallet and escape wheel (made of diamond-coated silicon) combined with diamond shell technology ensures that the watch’s 68-hour power reserve when fully wound is maintained despite the additional complications.
Second complication, the chronograph function at “12 o’clock” allows stopped times of up to 11 hours and 59 minutes, which can be read off as easily as the time of day. The central seconds hand measures stopped times to an accuracy of one-quarter of a second.
The third complication is the retrograde date display, located on the left-hand side of the dial. The hand shows the date from the 1st to the 31st of the month as it moves across an arc and then, at the end of the scale, reverts to its starting point. In months with fewer than 31 days or when the watch has not been used for a while, the date display can be advanced rapidly and conveniently using the crown. Compared with a traditional date window, the analogue display turns the passage of time into a much more vivid experience.
The watch, which is water-resistant to 3 bar, has a transparent sapphire-glass back that reveals the new IWC-manufactured 89900 calibre with its solid red gold rotor.
The movable horns ensure that the dark brown alligator leather strap by Santoni with its 18-carat red gold folding clasp fits perfectly around the wrist.
To start with, the Da Vinci goes back into a round instance, which means that it is originality and DNA is mainly driven by the remainder of the circumstance, the lugs. All the uniqueness of this watch is here: All these large, virtually massive articulated lugs with a central add, which provides the Da Vinci a visual robustness. We’ve chosen here the steel variant in contrast to the gold variant, for the very simple reason of the cost first, but also due to a more controlled appearance and the very wonderful mix with the slate gray dial. That having been said, these lugs are less gigantic when worn out compared to visual will allow you to think. Being articulated, they can go down round the wrist, making first a fantastic comfort but mainly adapting the visual dimension to many wrists’ sizes. This means that even if measuring 43mm without feeling “small”, that case succeeds and certainly will appear different on a small or a large wrist. Then there is the complication itself along with the display that comes along. For its own column watch, IWC chose to reintroduce the Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in a more conventional style. Indeed, this complication has been based on the Digital display from the previous, hexagonal edition. 3750, the display goes back to a traditional 4-subdial with moonphase design, which is indeed much more balanced in this baroque and curved context. However, what is behind has been modernized, and the Da Vinci relies on the counter at 12 that merges the minutes and the hours of the chronograph (something that was introduced first in 2007 about the Da Vinci). The moon is placed to this sub-dial, which can be painted in blue with a starry-sky to remind about the vocation of the counter. The remainder is traditional: date at 3, day at 9per month and small second at 6 and ultimately, complete 4-digit year indication at 7h30. The dial is here presented in a great slate gray color, changing from a dark anthracite tone into a warm gray based upon the ambient light, with applied Arabic numerals, something that is new to the set (even if some 2000s version showed painted numerals with the identical kind of font).
