About the IWC Ingenieur Collection

History

The post-war era was the era of engineers. Designed and crafted for these skilled professionals, IWC launched the IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur collection in 1955. The first Ingenieur was equipped with a thick anti-magnetic case. Known for its military applications, the anti-magnetic case was needed for the professionals who worked under strong electromagnetic effects. To curb this problem, extensive modifications were made and were fitted with a unique bidirectional automatic movement by Albert Pellaton. The most distinctive Ingenieur watch of that period, however, was crafted by the watch-making maestro Gerald Genta, who infused brilliant engineering in crafting the Ingenieur SL or Jumbo Ingenieur.

Features

Crafted differently from the first iteration, the modern-day Ingenieur features a calm and complacent design. Inside the Ingenieur Automatic series, the date window at the 3 o’clock marker is a reminder of the original timepiece. With a touch of modernism, the Ingenieur Chronograph series features three sub-dials and a tachymeter on the outer flange of the dial. These sub-dials and the tachymeter are useful for measuring the speed of an object. These dials display hours, minutes and seconds at the 9, 12, and 6 o’clock markers.

Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month

Adding a mix of modernity, the Ingenieur collection equipped itself with a rather unique interpretation of a perpetual calendar. The Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month features a totaliser sub-dial at the 12 o’clock marker with a flyback function making it a chronograph. Making it a perpetual calendar, the timepiece features a leap year marker inside the small seconds sub-dial and the date and month are digitally represented at 9 and 3 o’clock, respectively.

Events

IWC Schaffhausen grandly celebrated its partnership with the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team by putting up an exclusive pop-up exhibition in The Watch Gallery at Selfridges Wonder Room, London in May 2013. The exhibition proudly displayed the suave new look of the remodelled 2013 Ingenieur collection that is still carried today.

    IWC has many watches within its ranks that are part of partnerships with other global brands. One such partnership is with Mercedes, a brand devoted to perfection, aptly dovetailing with IWC. This Ingenieur is dedicated to the Mercedes Silver Arrow W25 race car which won the European championship in 1935. The racing heritage is clear to see with its flyback chronograph function and tachymeter feature enabling accurate time keeping. The laser sharp Silver arrow W25 engraved on the caseback furthers that racing notion. The black chronometric dials simulating speedometers, and the steel circular grained dial resembles the Silver Arrow W25’s dashboard giving it that final touch. The smart integrated strap characteristic of an Ingenieur, made of leather compliments the entire face.
