When it comes to the last word in luxury for women, often we’ve got pearls, diamonds and designer bags vying for attention – and yet the simplest yet most effective marker is one that one dons every day. We’re talking about the watch, of course!
A true work of art, luxury watches bring the world of technology to life. Since the first wrist watch, they have become symbolic of refined taste and sophistication – and with IWC watches for women, the wristwatch has been elevated to another level altogether!
First launched in the late 1800s, IWC Schauffhausen is an ode to craftsmanship. Its legacy was quickly established with its statement watches for pilots and sportsmen. The same innovative approach to design infuses the watches till this date and makes its women’s watches stand out from the crowd.
IWC watches set the right tone from the get-go because they get their inspirations right. The Portofino range, for instance, is designed to bring Mediterannean pizzazz to mind. Launched in 1984, its seemingly-functional-only gold case created an impression with its simplistic yet impactful design. With its clean watch face and minimalist detailing, this became a great fit for women to wear on the go.
With several iterations in its prestigious history, IWC Portofino for women has evolved beautifully. From the use of precious diamonds to the iconic 150th Year Celebration Watch launched in 2018, the Portofino has always conveyed its message of artistic luxury for the modern woman.
Such a classic watch can only be paired with a classic ensemble! We urge you to don a timeless linen sari or a tailored dress to accentuate this range – now that’s a power move!
Along with the Portofino, the Da Vinci is another range of beautiful luxury watches for women. Inspired by the grace and flair of the Old Masters, Da Vinci is inspired by that luxe Florentian life! Its appeal lies in the merging of elegance and complex systems.
Originally launched in 1969 in a stunning gold, the Da Vinci has undergone many iterations to reach its now-iconic round watchface in 1985. Armed with a Perpetual Calendar mechanism, the watch was beauty and grace, yet highly functional and adaptive!
Designed as a “pocket watch for the wrist’, IWC’s inventive spirit comes out in the versions of their watches, none more so than the Da Vinci. Ceramic, Tourbillon, Chronograph… the options are never ending, with its signature style making its mark. Its vintage design masks high complications and sets the tone of the watch just right – beautiful yet deadly.
Style the IWC Da Vinci with minimal yet striking pieces in hues of fuschia, turquoise, vermillion… now that’s what we would call Portable Art!
