History
Launched way back in the year 1955, the watches in the Ingenieur family were developed to withstand the effects of a magnetic field, since magnetism distorts the accuracy of any watch. Having drawn inspiration from the engineers who had to be in constant contact with magnetic fields, the collection was named ‘Ingenieur’. The watches comprised a bidirectional automatic movement system, which came to be known as the Pellaton System after its creator, Albert Pellaton. The Ingenieur watch family was reinvented in the year 2005 with the Pellaton winding system being combined with a few modern watchmaking innovations.

Design
The IWC Ingenieur IW322701 has a completely stainless steel body. The case of the watch has a 42.5 mm diameter. Scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating on both sides has been used to make the case window. The caseback of the watch has been kept solid and is made of stainless steel. A black dial with silvered Arabic numerals and indexes used as markers match the silver hands of the watch. The strap of the watch is made of stainless steel for a harmonious finish.

Features
The IWC Ingenieur IW322701 is an IWC 80110 calibre watch with an automatic Pellaton movement and 28 jewel bearings. Up to 44 hours of power reserve has been provided in the watch. Along with standard functions of a watch, the watch also has a date display at the 3 o’clock position of the dial. The IWC Ingenieur IW322701 is also water resistant up to 10 bar pressure or 100 metres.

 

History
The IWC Ingenieur collection was born and perfected as an answer to cumbersome drawbacks from using too many technical appliances in wristwatches. These watches were designed to reduce ill-effects caused by magnetic fields encountered by engineers. Extensive modifications to stem this problem and a unique bidirectional automatic movement by Albert Pellaton paved the way for the Ingenieur collection’s launch in 1955. The ingenious winding system perfected by Pellaton winds movement when the rotor moves either way, infinitely more efficient than the common restrictive unidirectional movement. The most distinctive Ingenieur watch of that period however, was crafted by the watch-making maestro Gerald Genta, who infused brilliant engineering in the making of the Ingenieur SL or Jumbo Ingenieur as it is often called.


Features
The Ingenieur novelty lies in capturing succinctly the essence of that which it emulates. IWC famously partnered with Mercedes AMG in year 2005 and brought forth two titanium cased models creatively emulating race-car styles. The 2013 Ingenieur watch collection showers more affection on the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 collaboration. The watch exudes performance efficiency, energy conservation and sporty appeal. Materials such as ceramic, titanium and carbon commonly used in Formula One have been incorporated in this collection to showcase their strong bond. An ideal example of this is the Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic which has been styled primarily from material typically used in motor racing.


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. IWC also celebrated the unveiling of two brand new models in the year 2014 in Schaffhausen, the Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic as well as Ingenieur Dual Time.

This piece is characteristic of the Ingenieur collection with its boisterous raw form. Having slightly larger dimensions than its predecessors, this Ingenieur at 43 mm features a fixed round steel bezel with five screws arranged pentagonaly around the dial, its integrated bracelet design, a hallmark of this collection. Its bracelet, an homage to the original with H-shaped links with rectangular centers. Its defining character being its beautifully textured dial, forming an ideal foil to the silver-toned hands and index markers. Unlike some watches in this collection, this one lacks crown protectors which helps focus on its unique dial. A conservative watch for the subtly stylish.
