You surely know the name of Leonardo da Vinci. It was no empty word for the founders of the International Watch Company as well. Inspired by works of this brilliant man, they created a line of watches with an eternal calendar, a calendar of lunar phases and overall design, inspiring to thoughts about the eternal and beautiful.
This extremely complicated mechanism was very easy to use: the date, day of the week, month, year, decade, century, millennium and the moon phase indicators were set up with a winder. The circle, one of the favorite geometric figures of Leonardo da Vinci, has determined the round shape of the watch case with four faces and two semicircular buttons.
This is not the only achievement of the company, although it is one of those that attract attention immediately. Another interesting model is a watch with a very difficult for the watch industry form - barrel. International Watch Company also cares about the reverse side of the product. There you can find exquisite and memorable patterns, matching the exterior design, which can be very unusual.
Thus, the IWC have a watch combining many styles: classic tourbillon, retrograde date indicator and sports chronograph on one face (Da Vinci Tourbillon Rétrograde). Sometimes several indicators are concentrated at the 12-hour mark (Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph), creating a certain epicenter of luxury, immediately snatched with a glance even at a fleeting look around the watches.
