ith the new Da Vinci col­lec­tion, IWC Schaffhausen has re­turned to the round case that was so suc­cess­fully es­tab­lished by the Da Vinci Per­pet­ual Calendar in 1985. It also means bid­ding farewell to the ton­neau case and reaf­firm­ing com­mit­ment to the clas­sic pro­por­tions the brand stands for. With the Da Vinci Au­to­matic 36 and the Da Vinci Au­to­matic Moon Phase 36, IWC also reestab­lishes an old tra­di­tion of cre­at­ing se­lected mod­els from the Da Vinci line spe­cially for women and adding di­a­monds or fash­ion­able straps and bracelets as fea­tures.

The Da Vinci Au­to­matic 36 (Ref. IW458307/ IW458308/ IW458310/IW458312) and the Da Vinci Au­to­matic Moon Phase 36 (Ref. IW459306/IW459307/IW459308) are not only smaller and slim­mer, but also have a more feminine de­sign: with rounded crowns and a re­cessed in­ner cir­cle on the dial, as pre­vi­ously found in the Portofino 37 mm col­lec­tion. Gold cases, di­a­mond-set bezels and al­li­ga­tor leather straps by San­toni in the colours rasp­berry, bronze, dark brown and dark blue spe­cially de­vel­oped for IWC un­der­score the watch’s aes­thetic ap­peal. To achieve the nu­anced gra­da­tions of colour on the strap, the sur­face of the leather is pol­ished with a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent pastes un­til it has the de­sired shad­ing
