SIHH 2013 Preview: IWC Ingenieur Automatic Watch
In time for the SIHH, IWC has introduced the 2013 Ingenieur Automatic Watch (Ref 3239). This watch is one of their more conservative watches of their 2013 collection and pays homage to the original Gerald Genta design. The new Ingenieur Automatic features design aesthetics created by the legendary watch designer such as the bores in the bezel, which originally was implemented to hold the bezel firmly in position.
The Ingenieur collection first launched in 1955 and since then houses its automatic movement in a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields. It was also one of the first Swiss manufacturers to create the bidirectional automatic movement. These features such as the bores and the logo with stylized lightning bolt eventually became the hallmark of the Ingenieur collection.
This new 2013 Ingenieur Automatic is powered by the automatic mechanical IWC 30110 caliber and is beautifully encased in a 40mm steel case. This watch is also great for slimmer wrists with only a watch case width of 10mm. Much like all its predecessors the 2013 Ingenieur also encases a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields up to 40,000 amperes per meter which is more than 8 times the Swiss standard. This watch is available in three different options. All of them stainless steel with black or white dial and rhodium-plated markers or rose-gold-plated markers. This watch also is available with a black rubber strap option.
