In our monthly must-have, Positive Luxury selects an iconic item from our #brandstotrust that we’ve been coveting. February’s pick is IWC Schaffhausen’s Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph – the first watch from the brand to combine hour and minute counters with the moon phase in a single subdial.
IWC Schaffhausen is known for combining precision engineering with exclusive haute horology designs. This philosophy has spanned its almost 150 year history, imbuing passion, innovation and craftsmanship into every mechanical watch produced.
Its latest design, Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, lives up to this exceptional reputation. The perpetual calendar for which it is named displays the date, day, month, year and moon phase. This highly engineered design is so accurate it will deviate from the actual state of the moon by just one day in 577.5 years. While the year slider in the current model can count to 2299 – identifying this piece as a classic item that will endure for centuries.
IWC Schaffhausen’s innovative outlook extends to their approach to environmental responsibility too. In 2007, after many years of progress on reducing its carbon dioxide emissions, the company was certified climate-neutral. Employees are encouraged to engage with these sustainability strategies too, receiving incentives to reduce transportation emissions or employ renewable energy systems in their homes.
Pre-order the IWC Schaffhausen Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph now, to invest in a timepiece and a planet that will be inherited by future generations to come.
