For a Swiss watch brand, IWC replica watch was not founded by a European or British founder, but by an American watch pioneer, Florence Ariosto Jones. By setting up the company in shafhausen in 1868, Mr Jones tried to combine skilled Swiss technology with american-made technology to create the best pocket watches of his time.Fast forward 150 years, the IWC is now a watch manufacturer, responsible for a number of popular models. Based on our special preview of the 150th anniversary series, I think it’s safe to assume that we’ll add some new watches to this “hot” list in the coming months. All of these have one thing in common – at least aesthetically – is an amazing white or blue print dial.
According to Christian Knoop, creative director of the IWC Replica Swiss Movement, it takes a long and complex process to achieve the right effect, in which the dial is coated with up to 12 layers of high-quality paint, which is then polished and brushed and printed several times. Obviously, the design inspiration for the dial and pointer is partly from the enamel dial used for the historic Pallweber watch and the first Portugieser from 1939, as shown in IW325. From the image, we can see that Da Vinci’s automatic version of “150 years” (reference number IW358102) is an attractive blue dial with painted surfaces, white print index and Numbers, and rhodium-plated Pointers. It has a 40.4 mm x 12.1 mm stainless steel case and the iconic hinged watch ear that fits comfortably on the wrist, along with Santoni’s elegant soft black crocodile leather strap.
At first glance, you might think this is just a blue painted face watch from the updated universal express finch automated gearbox launched by Shanghai international fashion hotel in 2017, but the story doesn’t stop there. The biggest gift, of course, was the “six o ‘clock” small stop-needle dial. Models released earlier this year have a central stop-needle display, but this is because they are powered by the IWC’s Calibre 35111, which is reportedly based on the Sellita sw-300 core. However, the special 150th anniversary edition of the Da Vinci autograph is the first copy IWC replica watches made with the new IWC 82,200 movement.
Through the sapphire cover, the newly developed IWC 82,200 core is an automatic core with a Pellaton upper string and a small second hand. It has 33 gems, runs at 4hz and has a maximum power reserve of 60 hours. Parts of a system under significant pressure, such as a pawl or CAM, are made of ceramic with little wear. Although not carefully crafted, the core is beautifully decorated, with round textures and Geneva stripes, a rotor hollowed out and a “150 year” badge. The IWC Da Vinci Automatic Edition “150 Years” (ref.iw358102) will soon release a limited Edition of top swiss IWC replica watches, arguably one of the best Da Vinci models we’ve seen in a long time. Only the lack of a date window, the 6 o ‘clock stop-hand, and of course the gorgeous blue painted dial, really connected the watch.
