Since 1955, the name Ingenieur has stood for uncompromising engineering, ultimate performance and technical innovation. Now, IWC Schaffhausen continues the success story, which has run for over 60 years, with three special editions. “The eye-catching vintage character of the new models adds some unexpected highlights to the design and takes the Ingenieur into the golden age of classical motorsport. Inside the case, the elegant, sporty timepieces feature the new in-house 69370 calibre, a significant watchmaking innovation in its own right,” says Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen, in summary.

The Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood” (Ref. IW380703) alludes to this year’s legendary historic motorsport event near the south coast of England. The most conspicuous feature of the timepiece, which is limited to 74 watches, is the solid red gold case measuring 42 millimetres in diameter. With its elegant simplicity, it is distinctly different from Gérald Genta’s technically inspired case design, as previously used for the Ingenieur, and gives the watch its classic appeal. The black dial with its two totalizers, small seconds and tachymeter scale running round the outer edge clearly takes its cue from the dashboard of a gutsy sports car. The beautifully worked brown calfskin strap likewise recalls the luxurious interior of classic motor cars.
