Your one-minute primer to the IWC Da Vinci Automatic.

IWC Da Vinci Automatic

Although IWC proposes this as a unisex model, we reckon that its 40mm case size may not be too kind on most feminine wrists. However, it is the ideal size for a masculine dress watch.

In stainless steel with a matching bracelet or black alligator leather strap, it is a faithful representation of the 1980s Da Vinci models and possesses the essential design codes of the refreshed collection. A rounded bezel encircles a silver-plated or slate-coloured dial, bookended by the signature articulated lugs that ensure a snug fit. The only let-down is perhaps the absence of a see-through case back to show off its automatic movement.
