A New Da VInci

Yes, I was finally invited to SIHH.  Yes, I opted out as I had another travel engagement the week after SIHH and as I am a teacher, I cannot simply drop my students for two weeks at a time ; )

But the advantage to this is a bit like watching Paris Roubaix on the television of a cozy bar in Flanders.  You get to see all of the action, and you don't have to jockey for position to check things out.

IWC has revamped the Da Vinci collection this year, and while there were several new offerings, there was one that spoke to me and it is this one.  A nice simple name for a nice simple watch - the Automatic.  And once again, let us not confuse simple with dumb.  Because this is a beautiful watch, and the beauty is in its simplicity.

The case is of stainless steel and measures 40 mm in diameter and 10 mm in height.

The movement is the calibre 35111, beating at a frequency of 28,800 A/h.  25 jewels, 42 hours of power reserve.

It is beautiful.
