SINCE 1969: MASTERPIECES FROM SCHAFFHAUSEN. The historic original Da Vinci of 1969 came in a striking angular case with extra-long hour markers and simple baton hands, a singular piece of design history and a prime example of the avant-garde shapes that marked the period. Today, its uncompromisingly straight and instantly recognizable lines unequivocally underscore the watch's modernity.
Unlike that first Da Vinci, however, which will forever be associated with the quartz wristwatch movement, the Da Vinci Automatic comes with a modern, IWC-manufactured 80111 calibre featuring Pellaton automatic winding system. A glance at the dial might make you think time had stood still, but a peek through the sapphire-glass back will quickly persuade you otherwise.
The Pellaton winding system is the cornerstone not only of the 50000-calibre family but also of the 80000-calibre family. In addition, it constitutes a point of departure for innovations in watchmaking technology. Continuous improvements, occasioned by the use of new materials, for instance, have led to a significant increase in its service life. The 85 calibre became part of the legend of ultra robust watches. One of the most rugged movements ever manufactured by.Was the 80110 calibre, unveiled in 2005. It offers maximum protection against abrasion and other defects, is easily accessed for servicing and has been continuously improved in terms of reliability and shock-absorption. Tough and attractive by equal measure, the IWC-manufactured 80111 calibre is featured in References 3231, 3233 and 5461 of the. Vintage Collection, where it can be viewed through a transparent sapphire-glass back. FROM VINCI TO SCHAFFHAUSEN A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME. Some 558 years ago, a small village in Tuscany saw the birth of a man without whose genius todays world would be a different place: Leonardo da Vinci.
In the 67 years until his death on 2 May 1519, he dreamed up more inventions and machines, and discovered and documented more of the laws of nature than hundreds of his contemporaries and those after them put together. His lifelong passion was the precise measurement of time.Countless sketches testify to his enthusiasm for the earliest clockworks of the Renaissance. All his groundbreaking inventions, such as gear drives, bevel gears and complicated screw transmission systems, can be found in many machines today, including watches.
His work on space-saving spring drives and new escapements, in particular, was pivotal. Posterity is still in awe of the some 6,000 pages of manuscript which he left behind. PLEASE ALSO CHECK OUR OTHER ITEMS.. Motion in Time is not affiliated with IWC & is not an official.
