Together with the cacophony of Baselworld 2016 releases reaching something of a nadir, we see the launch of three new IWC Ingenieur Chronograph replicac watches which choose for a vintage-inspired case within the preceding Gerald Genta design, and feature a fresh in-house IWC 69370 motion. These three special models are limited editions commemorating the 74th Goodwood Member’s Meeting, which will be a weekend-long racing event. The IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition”74th Member’s Assembly at Goodwood” is limited to 74 bits and includes a rose gold case, the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition”Rudolf Caracciola” is at a stainless steel case, and also the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition”W 125″ is a titanium model. These last two will each possess a 750-watch run.
The new 42mm-wide and 15mm-high case comprises two totalizers, small seconds dial, and tachymeter on the outer border. IWC states this design is inspired from the dash of a classic sports car — but whatever its design origins are, it’s a distinctly new design when compared to the Gerald Genta-designed case of preceding IWC Ingenieurs chronograph preis replica watch. Angular lines, integrated lugs, and crown protectors are gone. No more bezel screws, plastic, rubber, or anything of the sort. Subtle touches like both circles in 12 o’clock are reminiscent of their very first IWC Ingeniuer (below), years earlier Genta was commissioned to recreate the Ingeniuer.
Aesthetic reboot aside, there’s a new move here too, together with all the in-house IWC ingenieur chronograph lewis hamilton imitation watch 69370 caliber. This can be an automatic chronograph movement which has date, stopwatch, and small hacking moments. The motion consists of 200 parts and measures 30mm wide by 7.9mm top. It operates at a frequency of 28,800vph and has a 46-hour power reserve.
The rose gold IWC Ingenieur Chronograph”74th Member’s Assembly at Goodwood” which is limited to 74 pieces also has red gold hands and appliqués, and comes on a brown calfskin strap. The black dial with rose gold and red gold has pretty timeless, old-school great looks, and that I think 42mm is the perfect case size, not something like 46mm. Personally, I really don’t adore the red used on the subdials — I understand the racing and automotive inspiration, but it looks a little confused to me. Luckily, I feel far less strongly about the red on the steel and ceramic versions.
The IWC ingenieur chrono alarm quartz replica watch Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition”W 125″ is motivated by the Mercedes-Benz W 125 Silver Arrow from the late 1930s. The titanium case cradles a dial with black hands and appliqués, which can be naturally complemented by the black calfskin strap as well as the red in the sub dials.
This new design won’t be replacing the Genta made Ingeniuer according to IWC ingenieur chronograph edition w125 imitation watch, thus we could be visiting more non-limited models in the future alongside the present line. Cost for the increased gold IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition”74th Member’s Meeting at Goodwood” is $17,200 and also the Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition”Rudolf Caracciola” and”W 125″ are equally $7,150 each. iwc.com
