Da Vinci Chrono

    The new IWC mechanical chronograph movement sets new standards by bringing together for the first time previously separate displays of minutes and hours for an extended time measurement. The double counter, or the so-called watch within the watch, permits the indication of the aggregate time recording of hours and minutes in the familiar form of an analog time display with two hands. The case construction is IWC’s most complex ever with intricate detail and a solid-glass mounting. The Da Vinci Chrono is available in stainless steel, rose gold, white gold, and platinum (limited edition of 500 pieces).
