The Da Vinci Family Classic watch is the highli
ght of IWC this year, its watch case adapts to the classic round case design from its original collection. My personal recommendation is definitely the Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in grey steel case. This model includes the functions of calendar and calculation, it could be classified as a very complex watch in the past. As the technology has advanced in nowadays, and the scale of economy leads to the decrease of cost, the price of this model is relatively attractive and reasonable (it prices at two hundred thousands only). On the other hand, the development of women’s mechanical watches has a decent performance in despite of the economic downturn. Therefore, it is expected that Automatic 36 is the main promotion item for IWC. I personally love the Automatic Moon Phase 36. My old grandpa always claims that the moon phase function is no longer useful at the nowadays society. In fact, does someone still rely on the moon phase function for farming or fishing? However, the moon face function can enrich the design and aesthetic aspect of the dial plate. Da Vinci Automatic 36 is a good choice for women. If male consumers do not have any interest on Da Vinci collection, Portofino Hand-Wound 8 Days Moon Phase can be a good option for them.
今年IWC的重點是Da Vinci家族，錶殼重回昔日典雅的圓形設計。我的個人推介當然是鋼殼灰面的Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph，又萬年曆又計時，在以前來說可被列入大複雜功能腕錶了，但現今科技先進，而且因「規模經濟」而令成本降低，售價相對吸引，這一款就正正只售廿多萬，相當合理。雖然市道低迷，但女裝機械腕錶的發展空間不俗，所以估計品牌今年的推廣焦點應該會落在Automatic 36身上吧，我個人就頗喜歡有月相的Automatic Moon Phase 36。老爺經常說月相功能在現今社會沒什麼實際用途，真的，有人會看手錶上的月相上耕田打魚嗎？不過月相功能的確可以豐富錶盤的設計，更添美感。女士們可選Da Vinci Automatic 36，男士們不要Da Vinci的話，選Portofino Hand-Wound 8 Days Moon Phase也不錯。
