The IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Replica from Kurt Klaus edition is undoubtedly a beautiful watch with a lovely special design to it. The watch features the name of one of the most important people at IWC, Kurt Klaus, who was actually a designer for 50 years, making the brand what it is today. Because of its great design combined with the lovely Da Vinci Shape, the watch has been extremely popular. It also features a perpetual calendar which makes it even more desirable for those looking for a fancy watch.
Here we have two watches from this edition; but one of the watches is a replica and the other is an original watch.
The first difference that we notice when comparing these two watches is on the upper part of the bezel; it seems that on the replica watch there is something written there saying Da Vinci, but on the original watch that space is blank. Another difference between these two watches is on the upper chronograph where the numbers are different; on the replica watch we have the numbers 04, 08, 12, 16, 20 and 24 but on the original watch we have numbers 05, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30. Another difference between the watches is on the bottom of the dial, where on the replica watch we have again a writing that cannot be found on the original; this time it says Perpetual Calendar. Also the design of the year date seems to be smaller on the replica watch than on the original watch making the year not as noticeable. Another difference between the two watches is for each date, as it seems that the design of the rounded calendars is a bit smaller for the replica watch than for the original watch. This creates a gap between the calendars and the hour markings on each of the sides, left, right and down. Also, they seem to be more in depth on the original watch than on the IWC mens replica, but other than that there are no major differences when it comes to the markings or the numbers written on them.
