IWC launched the Da Vinci series in the 80s of the last century. The case has the shape of a barrel. The corners are rounded. Lines smoothly go around the mechanism without losing rectangular parameters.
The chronograph was released in cases for every taste. Of the usual precious metals: gold, white and pink. An economical option in steel. There is a limited number with a platinum case.
Time reads from the dial easily. The hour markers are large. The main gradation is divided into hours, minutes, and seconds. At 6 and 12 o’clock there are two sub-dials. The date aperture is located exactly at 6 o’clock. You can control the chronograph using two additional pushers, to the left and right of the crown.
