Best IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watch Review

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 doesn’t hearken too far back. It’s an inoffensive piece that some will find an appealing and versatile wear, but it will probably not put the Da Vinci line on the radar of many who already overlook it. Perception aside, it’s an interesting move from IWC to go from “Watches For Men” to a series of ladies’ pieces and this “unisex” model.

I mentioned the ’90s Da Vinci model that is also very much a classic look for a dress watch, and the new-for Cheap IWC Replica Da Vinci Automatic watches revive some elements of its look. The new models have a high-polish case wrapping around the dial, with leaf-shaped hands that are finished in the same tone that the polished numerals on the dial have. I find myself preferring the slate dial, but I do rather like the blued seconds hand on the silver dial, as it’s a nice bit of color.

One other thing that may not be immediately apparent about the IWC Replica Watch 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.

As for the overall look of the AAA IWC Replica Watches Da Vinci Automatic, it’s cohesive, and it’s a solid, classic look. Then again, it also reminds me somewhat of a certain Timex design. This is not to disparage either brand, but the numerals do evoke that association. Naturally, if you had the IWC Da Vinci Automatic and a Weekender next to each other, you’d have no trouble telling them apart, both in weight and build quality. In terms of the overall aesthetic of the IWC Da Vinci Automatic, though, it is not putting grail visions in my head.

While I am certainly a fan of classic dress watches, and I do feel that Best IWC Replica Watches Review has had some interesting designs, for my personal tastes the new IWC Da Vinci Automatic leaves me a bit ambivilent. Who knows, perhaps that date window position is something carried over from another vintage reference, but that is a detail that should have perhaps been redone.

IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watch Hands-On

We saw a diverse new set of Pilot’s watches added to the IWC catalog, but 2017 is all about the complete overhaul of their Da Vinci collection. We brought you news of the IWC Da Vinci Automatic Replica Watches not long ago and, when compared to something like the IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, with its revamped circular case, it really shows you the range of changes coming into the lineup.

The IWC Replica Watch is sized at 40mm, which by modern standards can often be considered a unisex size. It’s slim at 10mm thick and the proportions are ideal for a watch that’s meant for both men and women. I, for one, don’t have much of an issue with a 40mm case and find these measurements to exist somewhere within the sweet spot in terms of comfort and versatility. It’s good to see IWC push women’s watches that aren’t exactly dainty or explicitly feminine as well. They made a similar move last year with the IWC Pilot’s Watch Automatic 36 which, funny enough, was the same size as the original Mark XI.

The dial is simple, which can mean elegant for some or boring for others. With a time-only layout and unobtrusive date placement at 6 o’clock sitting within a well-contrasted seconds track. Both IWC Replica Swiss Made the silver-plated and slate dial finishes serve as nice backdrops for the polished Arabic numerals and the lancet-shaped hands, which are both color-matched for their respective dials. One thing you’ll notice is that the twin frame bezel is actually quite pronounced, and its combination with the convex sapphire crystal results in a compact, vintage-inspired look.

We’ve seen IWC Knockoff Watches do some amazing work with Santoni and naturally, the silver dial Ref. IW356601 comes with a Santoni alligator leather strap fitted with a stainless steel pin buckle. It’s a logical pairing, though you can’t help but love the slightly more aggressive styling of the Ref. IW356602 with its polished stainless steel bracelet meant to match the slate dial.
