IWC Schaffhausen, as part of its 150th anniversary Jubilee Collection, unveiled two limited-edition Da Vinci watches.
A year ago, IWC relaunched the watch collection with its iconic 1980s-style circular case. The watch family is now welcoming two new members in an anniversary design with the characteristic dials produced using a complex lacquering process in white or blue.
The Da Vinci Automatic Edition ‘150 Years’ with small seconds at 6 o’clock is the first watch to feature the new IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre. A total of 250 watches will be made in red gold and 500 in stainless steel.
The newly developed automatic IWC-manufactured 82200 calibre with a Pellaton winding system boasts a power reserve of 60 hours.
The Da Vinci Automatic Moon Phase 36 Edition ‘150 Years’ takes up the tradition of elaborately decorated jewellery watches. This was a style the company cultivated towards the end of the 1980s and during the 1990s with models like the diamond-set Lady Da Vinci in yellow gold.
Two limited-edition models are available, each restricted to 50 watches: 18-carat white gold, white dial with lacquered finish, blued hands and 18-carat red gold, white dial with lacquered finish, blued hands. Both timepieces have a moon phase display at 12 o’ clock. The watches’ cases and moving lugs are paved with 206 pure white diamonds amounting to 2.26 carats.
