With the introduction of the new Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar, IWC also revised the Da Vinci line-up for ladies. While this may surprise some, the women’s models always had an unyielding position in the Da Vinci-line up, a tradition that IWC continues now with the automatic moon phase ladies model.

One of the earlier Da Vinci models for women was also featured a moon phase. It was powered by a so-called mecca-quartz movement, which consists out of a quartz movement, but with a mechanical chronograph and moon phase indicator. For their latest model IWC forgo not only the chronograph function but also the battery needed to power it.

Instead, they fitted it with Caliber 35800, and automatic movement, with a 42-hour power reserve and a moon phase complication at 12 o’clock. With a moon phase, the number of teeth on the mechanism determines the precision. IWC fitted the one in the Da Vinci with 59, which means that you have to adjust it one day in about every two years, seven and a half months.

Next, to the moon phase, two other things stand out with the Da Vinci. First, there is the perfect size of 36mm. This ensures that the watch retains its feminine elegance, yet at the same time has quite a presence on the wrist without being uncomfortable large. Comfort and wrist presence are also ensured by the movable lugs, a trademark of the very first Da Vinci. Between those lugs is an alligator strap fitted, made by Santoni, and featuring stunning brown color tones. IWC designed to make the Da Vinci 36 Automatic Moon Phase a watch for every day. They not only succeed in this by making the watch comfortable and practical but by also making it beautiful they turned this from an option into a desire.
