IWC has reimagined their Da Vinci line, foregoing the recent tonneau shape for a more classic round case. The new IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watches doesn’t hearken too far back, though, drawing clear inspiration from the Da Vinci SL Automatic from the late 1990s.
The “female target group as main focus of interest” at IWC with the Da Vinci collection this year, this 40mm IWC Replica Watches is released alongside the 36mm IWC Da Vinci Automatic 36 watch. The model we are covering in this article is 40mm wide and 10mm thin, with a 30m water-resistance. Large enough for him, small enough for her, I suppose. The automatic IWC 35111 movement inside is a base Sellita SW300-1 with 42 hours of power reserve operating at 4Hz.
One other thing that may not be immediately apparent about the Cheap IWC Replica is the fact that the lugs are articulating, or hinged. Basically, that means that you should get a very comfortable fit on your wrist, even if your wrists are on the smaller side. I’ve experienced this type of lug on other watches, and it does make for a better fit – at 40mm, of course, there will be no worries about “lug overhang” anyway.
It does put a question in my mind, though – what designer thought that this was the right positioning to put the date window in? It’s simply jarring. Not that it’s at 6 o’clock, but the fact that it does not follow with the Fake IWC Watches circle that the numeral indices are creating. Even if they had aligned the top edge of the date window with the line drawn from the tops of the 7 and the 5, I could maybe let it slide.
