Notes

 Launched for the company’s 125th celebration in 1993, the Destriero Scafusia was the most complicated IWC ever produced. Featuring a beautifully hand-engraved movement and a flying tourbillon, the Destriero Scarfusia was one of the few grande complications available on the market at the time and is sure to become a real classic in the history of IWC.
