IWC Il Destriero Scafusia Grand Complication

Posted by wristwatch on October 22, 2007

Owning a Grand Complication is the horological equivalent of summiting Mount Everest – you can’t go higher. Such is the case with this massive platinum Grand Complication wristwatch from the International Watch Company. The Il Destriero Scafusia offers minutes repitition, tourbillon, perpetual calendar with moonphase and split seconds rattrapante chronograph. The calendar even offers a four digit year display for millinium, 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 Il Destriero Scafusia is limited in production to 125 pieces.

Case is solid platinum/18k pink 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 cabachon 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.

      I think it is a fake. I have a ILDESHIERO SCAFUSIA with teh same No. 65/ 125. This one is a fake, too. On the back aof my watch is 1968 to 1998 printed. But the 125th anniversary was in 1993. What fools they are …
