Ladies’ models have always been an integral part of the Da Vinci line. Launched in 1988 and produced in various versions into the nineties, the Da Vinci Lady Chronograph (Ref. 3735) became the most successful ladies’ watch in the history of IWC. “That’s why it was clear to us from the very beginning that watches designed especially for ladies had to be a key part of the new collection”, Knoop explains.
Fortunately, the round style of the 1980s provided the perfect basis for developing designs for both men and ladies. The Da Vinci Automatic 36 (Ref. 4583) and Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 (Ref. 4593) were created especially for ladies, whereas the Da Vinci Automatic (Ref. 3566) is aimed at both men and women. Continuing the tradition of glamorous watches from the 1990s, the most exclusive ladies’ model in the new collection features a case and bracelet made from 18-carat red gold and a bezel set with 54 pure white diamonds.
The articulated strap horns with curved lugs ensure a very comfortable fit on slimmer wrists, making these watches particularly attractive for ladies. This is another feature from the 1980s that the designers used for the new models. Alligator leather straps from Santoni in the newly developed colours raspberry, brown, bronze and blue provide further fashionable highlights.
