IWC DaVinci Chronograph 3764-15 Collectors' Forum Limited Edition Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com Every few years, IWC pens a love letter to its most devoted collectors. In 2010, that Valentine's note took the form of this IWC DaVinci Chronograph 3764-15 Collectors' Forum Limited Edition. One of only 100 manufactured, the IWC DaVinci Collector's Forum LE was offered exclusively to members of the company's official online forum. IWC demonstrated exceptional daring when they established a fan forum on their corporate website in 2001. Trolls, flame wars, and SPAM are the rule on web fora, and upscale purveyors of luxury goods could be forgiven for avoiding that webspace entirely; there's plenty of watch media on the 'net as it is. But IWC bit the bullet, and the result has become one of the premier destinations for the most sophisticated denizens of the IWC universe. The DaVinci Chronograph 3764-15 features unique tribute elements to thank the fans that make IWC's Collectors' Forum an unlikely success. This watch's special combination of silver dial, rose gold hands, applied rose gold indexes, and custom-engraved rotor celebrate the openness and fraternity that members enjoy on the forum. Few watchmakers enjoy the loyalty that IWC receives from its collectors, and even fewer reciprocate the dedication with gestures like the DaVinci 3764-15. Inside the stainless steel case, an IWC caliber 89360 keeps the beat at 28,800 VpH. With IWC's signature Albert Pellaton winding system (now upgrade to four pawls from two), a smooth vertical clutch engagement for the chronograph, a crisp column wheel function selector, and a 68-hour power reserve, this is a modern motor designed to tickle the technophile. The IWC DaVinci Chornograph 3764-15 was a members-only gift to the firm's forum die-hards. But for those who've joined the fraternity since 2010, thewatchbox.com is pleased to offer a second chance to own the IWC for those who sign their postings "Schaffhausen represent." This DaVinci Chronograph 3764-06 Collectors' Forum can be seen with on thewatchbox.com with full IWC factory boxes, manuals, and special edition paperwork. Video and content by Tim Mosso.
