Product Description

The legendary "Ingenieur" was designed by IWC’s technical director Albert Pellaton, who was the brains behind the company’s first automatic movements – the calibres 81 and 85. The functional Ingenieur model was produced for the civil market and available from 1954 on in steel or gold and a variety of styles.
The famous signature of the "lightning bolt" passing through the name "Ingenieur" was chosen to emphasise the antimagnetic properties of the watch, as the soft iron shield safeguards the movement from magnetic fields.
One of the earliest functional watches to boast a characteristic, timeless design, the Ingenieur models have become a style icon among the collectors.
With its stunning pink gold case and the distinctive, gently shimmering silvered dial the Ingenieur is certainly not "just" a timekeeper. The watch is a magnificent combination of beauty and function and is not only highly coveted by the collectors of classic IWC timepieces, but appeals to a much wider spectrum of watch enthusiasts.
