IWC’s Ingenieur collection was first launched in the year 1955. IWC specializes in making watches that are not easily damaged by the surrounding magnetic field. The Ingenieur watch family was revamped and made a comeback with new improved designs and modern technological elements in the watches.

The IWC Ingenieur Automatic IW 323401 features a case in black colour and is made of stainless steel. Its case window has been made of scratch resistant sapphire crystal with a transparent caseback made of the same material. The dial of the watch is black, with Arabic numerals and indexes used as hour markers. The hands used in the dial are of luminous silver tone and along with the markers they have been made of luminescent materials. A black leather strap has been used for the watch, making it comfortable to wear without compromising on the looks. The design of this watch have been developed keeping in mind the longevity of the timepiece. This timepiece features a case with a winding screw attached to the side. It helps in manual winding.

The IWC Ingenieur Automatic IW 323401 is equipped with IW80111 calibre, an automatic movement with a frequency of 28800 A/h and 28 jewels. This watch comprises of a date display at the 3 o’clock position of the dial along with the regular time-keeping functions. Its power reserve is of 44 hours. Adding to these functions, this watch is also water resistant to a depth of 100 metres. Thus you can indulge in a refreshing swim or try out adventurous water sports while you are sporting this timepiece.

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.

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.

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.

Of American and Swiss ancestry, IWC time pieces are a rare breed of luxury watches boasting the best of two worlds, American technology and Swiss custom. The 3234 from the Ingenieur series is one of the simpler ones, if not one of the most rugged. Its antimagnetic IWC movement is encased in a tough stainless steel case with a ceramic black bezel screwed on top, in typical IWC fashion, with the screw heads showing. Its face includes luminous hands, applied Index hour markers, a Date window displayed at the 3 o’clock position and a black dial. The black dial is textured brilliantly to mimic the extremely durable black Kevlar strap, which fits seamlessly into the case.
A luxury watch for the simple at heart.
