Replica IWC’s Da Vinci collection has undergone yet another major revamp, with a return this year to the round case shape that it sported in the 1980s. The updated collection is skewed heavily towards a female audience, with a design-centric approach that captures the spirit of the original round Da Vinci watches, while keeping them relevant in the 21st century.
On the technical front, the IWC Replica Watches equipped with Calibre 89900, the newest member of the 89000 chronograph movement family. This flyback chronograph combines its minute and hour totalisers into a single sub-dial at 12 o’clock, so elapsed time can be read like a normal clock.
The flying tourbillon here is of particular interest, as several technical advancements have been implemented here. For a start, it contains two levers that grip the IWC Replica balance when the crown is pulled out — this stops the entire gear train, essentially allowing time to be set down to the second, just like a regular movement with hacking seconds.
