An icon is reinvigorated
Icons are not born overnight. They impress with their skills, charisma and appeal, inspiring people across generations. This is also true for watches – and one such icon in the world of timepieces is undoubtedly the legendary Ingenieur from IWC Schaffhausen.
Back to the roots
The watch’s legendary journey continues to this day. IWC Schaffhausen presented the completely redesigned Ingenieur line at this year’s 75th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, a historic motorsport event held in the south of England and thus the perfect stage for the new collection inspired by the design of earlier generations.
Stopping time in its tracks
The Ingenieur Chronograph also brings the spirit of the 1950s and the era’s enthusiasm for technology to the present day. It is powered by the new IWC-manufactured 69375-calibre movement with a bidirectional pawl-winding system and a 46 hour power reserve. The character of the chronograph is emphasised by the tachymeter scale and stainless-steel case with a polished bezel. Two versions are available with a stainless-steel case and bracelet: one with a silver-plated dial and gold-plated hands, the other with a blue dial and rhodium-plated hands. A third version has a case made from 18-carat red gold, a slate-coloured dial, gold-plated hands and a black alligator leather strap. The glass back cover of all three versions also provides a view of the latest IWC-manufactured calibre, decorated with Geneva stripes and circular graining. And for all of those wanting to stop time in its tracks, the timepiece has a stopwatch function with hours, minutes and seconds.
