Wow, very nice watch indeed !

The very useful perpetual calendar combined with one of the nicest yet useless complications the rattrapante !!
I love it, I once almost purchased a Tourbillon perpetual Da Vinci (same case as yours) and I almost regret it.
Actually I am pretty sure this 90's case will be back to fashion much more than the tonneau version of the 2000's. Great piece !

the moon disk on that one was sweet! [nt]

I had the "simple" PC version in WG and was so stupid to trade it.. :-/


I had one in yellow gold many years ago.

Also stupid enough to sell it 🤦🏻‍♂️

A heavy hitter from IWC of old.

In recent years I’ve begun to like this reference more and more.  Obviously the complications (and combination of such) was always appealing, but I was never so sure about the overall aesthetic of the watch.  But like many (aesthetic) things horology it’s often the more one sees them the more one appreciates them.  A beautiful watch. 

Beautiful Watch

Designed by Hano Burtscher and using a Valjoux 7750 with Kurt Klaus engineering the perpetual calendar and Richard Habring the spilt seconds mechanism under the Günter Blümlein era of IWC, this watch continued the spirit of mechanical watches in the dominating quartz market and thus has so much IWC history and watch making history behind it. I love it.

Such a fantastic watch!

A curious thing about the dial though - do you know why the tritium markers at 3,6,9 and 12 o'clock are white while the resta are yellowish? Are all of the them luminous?

Very nice watch. Wearing mine today:-)

Traditional lugs?

I wonder how hard it would be to put traditional logs on the case of one of these. I love the watch but just can’t get used to the way the bracelet attaches

Very nice shot of a superb reference. I had it, loved it and lost it stupidly. A bit bold, but how interesting, this watch and its combination of a rattrapante and a perpetual calendar. [nt]
