Description

Although IWC made both the Il Destriero Scafusia and the Grand Complication, let me clarify from the outset that this is the more complicated and much rarer and more collectable watch. This Il Destriero Scafusia has Minute Repeater, Tourbillon, Perpetual Calendar and split-seconds chronograph, all in one watch! Those are all of the high complications, in one watch, for a true horological bargain. (The Grand Complication does not have the tourbillon or rattrapante complication). Owning a Destriero Scafusia is the horological equivalent of summiting Mount Everest - you can't go higher. Such is the case with this massive rose gold Grand Complication wristwatch from the International Watch Company. The calendar even offers a four digit year display for millennium, century, decade and year. I'll warn you in advance about the dilemma you will face with this watch: to wear it dial side up or movement side up... the movement in this watch is unbelievably complex and absolutely seductive. The name of the watch translates to the “Warhorse from Schaffhausen”. The Il Destriero Scafusia was introduced in 1993 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of IWC, and is limited in production to 125 pieces and this is watch number 6X. The watch is still in new condition and is absolutely complete with huge impressive collector’s box and all books, booklets and certificate. Case is 18k rose gold with dimensions of 43mm diameter by 17.2mm thick. The case is massive with a very broad bezel, large repeater slide, crown with sapphire cabochon and chronograph pushers. Domed sapphire crystal in front and flat sapphire display back crystal. The case back is hand decorated and engraved and secured by 6 screws. Dial is silver with roman numerals and blued hands for time and calendar indicators and red hands for the chronograph displays. The 12 o'clock subdial is for moonphase and the 30 minute chronograph totalizer; 3 o'clock subdial is the date; 6 o'clock subdial is month and 12 hour chronograph totalizer; 9 o'clock subdial is day and constant seconds. The four digit year display is adjacent to 7 o'clock. Movement is the manual winding IWC Caliber 18680 with 76 jewels, 44 hour power reserve and beating at 28,800 beats per hour. Again, this movement provides: perpetual calendar with moonphase and 4 digit year display, split seconds rattrapante chronograph with 30 minute and 12 hour chronograph totalizers, one minute flying tourbillon, and hour, quarter hour and minute repeater... amazing! The tourbillon cage is titanium. Pictures are worth 1000 words, so feast your eyes below. This movement is completely hand finished and hand decorated. It's a gorgeous machine. Strap is thickly padded IWC black crocodile with 18k rose gold IWC tang buckle. Watch is new with box and papers.
