The new designs return to a more traditional, timeless form factor.
IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar

You can always count on IWC to start the year with a stunning new collection of watches and 2017 is no different. For this year's SIHH, IWC is presenting an all-new look for its Da Vinci models, a line which returns to the more traditional look of the originals from the '80s. The collection will feature models with a variety of complications including a Perpetual Calendar, Chronograph, Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph, and an Automatic.

The Automatic model keeps it simple and elegant with a 40mm case and moving "horn" lugs that ensure a proper fit around the wrist. The dial is accented with arabic numerals, lancet-shaped leaf hands, and comes in a silver or slate-colored finish. Movement is the 35111 automatic with a 42 hour power reserve. Strap options include alligator leather or a stainless steel bracelet.

One of the boldest expressions of the new Da Vinci is without a doubt, the Tourbillon Retrograde Chronograph. The watch combines a tourbillon, chronograph, and a retrograde date inside a stunning 44mm 18-carat gold case. Movement is their in-house 89900 automatic with 68 hour power reserve.

The new Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is one sophisticated timepiece. The watch touts the company's first dial to feature an hour and minute counter in one subdial. The 43mm case comes in stainless steel (slate dial) or 18-carat red gold (silver-plated dial) and features their 89630 automatic movement with 68 hour power reserve. Both watches feature a Santoni alligator leather strap.

Last, but not least is a special edition model for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which is a chronograph version of the watch with a blue dial and a 42mm stainless steel case. Movement is the 89361 automatic with chronograph and flyback functionality and a power reserve of 68 hours. A portion of the proceeds will goto the Laureus Foundation's projects.
