Many watch lovers around the world may perceive IWC as a male oriented brand. But fact is that the Schaffhausen-based manufacturer has been offering beautiful watches for women throughout its history. IWC founder F.A. Jones started constructing the first prototypes for women’s pocket watches as early as the mid-1870s, and their production continued into the decades thereafter. Later, during the 1980s, women’s watches formed an integral part of the Da Vinci watch family. More recently, IWC released midsize watches in its Portofino and Pilot’s Watches families, which are particularly attractive to women thanks to their reduced case diameters. In 2017, the brand introduced its new Da Vinci collection. With the Da Vinci Automatic 36 and the Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36, IWC now continues the tradition of women’s watches in this watch family.
