This year, the company is increasing its offering with 4 new models, including three brand-new versions of the chronograph. The new versions range from an affordable stainless steel automated three-hander which looks even more like a vintage ref. 666A, to a high-end perpetual calendar.
The new however vintage-inspired Ingenieur Automatic, a 40mm three-hander with a small day window at three o’clock. For the first time, IWC Replica Watches incorporates a chronograph with the perpetual schedule’s moon-phase display screen in a solitary sub-dial with the launch of the Da Vinci Perpetual Schedule Chronograph working on your home activity 89630.
