IWC - Ingenieur Collection

| 1 Comment
Launched on occasion of the 75th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, a historic motorsport event in the south of England, IWC’s new Ingenieur Collection is inspired to the first three-hand Ingenieur models introduced in 1955.

Characterised by simple round cases framing dials with striking hands and indices with luminescent elements, the new Ingenieur line includes three automatic models, four IWC-manufactured chronographs and a limited-edition reference with perpetual calendar and flyback chronograph.

The Ingenieur Automatic is a classic round watch with three hands, a date window at 3 o’clock and a case measuring 40 mm in diameter.

Three versions are available. Two of the models feature a stainless-steel case and rhodium-plated hands and indices. The first (Ref. IW357001) has a silver-plated dial and a black alligator leather strap, and the second (Ref. IW357002) has a black dial and a stainless-steel bracelet.

The third version is the Reference IW357003, which has an 18-carat red gold case, a silver-plated dial, gold plated hands and a black alligator leather strap.

Prices are Euro 5,150, Euro 6,250 and Euro 15,300, respectively.

The Ingenieur Chronograph is driven by the new IWC-manufactured 69375 calibre with a bidirectional pawl-winding system and a power reserve of 46 hours.

Two of the versions are available with a stainless-steel case and strap: one features a silver-plated dial and gold-plated hands (Ref. IW380801), while the other has a blue dial and rhodium-plated hands (Ref. IW380802). Both models have the same price of Euro 8,950.

The stainless-steel bracelet, which features a fine-adjustment clasp integrated into the buckle, has been developed especially for the Ingenieur for enhanced comfort.

The third version comes in 18-carat red gold with a slate-coloured dial, gold-plated hands and a black alligator leather strap (Ref. IW380803). Price: Euro 20,600.

All the watches feature a see-through sapphire-glass back that provides a view of the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) 69375 calibre.

The Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is driven by the IWC-manufactured 89361-calibre movement and is limited to just 500 watches. The 44 mm titanium case frames a black dial where the small seconds hand in the shape of a lightning bolt at 6 o’clock reminds the wearer that a soft-iron cage protects the movement against the negative influence of magnetic fields.

Matched to a black calfskin strap, the Ingenieur Chronograph Sport (Ref. IW380901) has a price of Euro 12,600.

The top-of-the-range model is the Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month, whose 45-mm red gold case frames a silver-plated dial with black hands and large double-digit displays for date and month.

The perpetual calendar automatically recognizes the different lengths of the months, including the leap day occurring every four years. It can be easily adjusted using the crown.

The self-winding IWC-manufactured 89800 calibre beats at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph) with an autonomy of 68 hours and features a flyback chronograph function.

Completed by a black alligator leather strap, the IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month (Ref. IW381701) is a limited edition of just 100 watches with a unit price of Euro 52,300.
