One factor that this watch might produce a nasty smell in a few months of use is because of its alligator strap especially when your sweat does not collect under the band as it would immerse through the band in its place.

 

The Opinion of Our Watch Expert at Luxurious Watch Review

The IWC Da Vinci Automatic IW458312 is a luxurious entry-level watch. Did you know that the Renaissance artist, inventor and genius Da Vinci was obsessed with the aesthetic harmony of the perfect circle and the golden ratio? It is a formula for the most pleasing proportions of design. Also, he was interested in the “Flower of Life,” a geometrical symbol within a circle, composed of numerous evenly-spaced, overlapping circles organized to form a flower-like form with a six-fold symmetry such as the hexagon. The pattern of the Flower of Life is engraved on the case backs of this model. If you are looking for an entry level watch of IWC, then this watch is ideal for you. If you are looking into a dressier type of watch, you might be interested in Pilot’s Automatic.
