The first IWC Ingenieur was launched in the mid-1950s and was designed for scientists and technicians. However, in recent years, this genius has undergone major changes not only in design but also in purpose. Today’s elites are more sports watches for oil heads and racing enthusiasts, but these three models use a more classic case design of the pre-Genta model. To further consolidate the position of the “genius” as a “oil head” watch, Cheap IWC Replica Watches launched three new “Genius” time special edition watches last year to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the week-long Goodwood Annual General Assembly.
When these three watches were released last year, they also heralded the new design of IWC Replica Watches. The integrated strap, crown protector and angular lines inspired by the early “elite watch” designed by legendary Gerald Genda no longer exist. Instead, the new generation of Ingenieur timers have a more classic, more restrained case design that has more in common with the first generation Ingenieur watches of the 1950s.
In the past, Ingnio was known for its automatic winding movement, which features a Pillerton winding system and a soft iron cage capable of withstanding magnetic fields of up to 80,000 A/m. It is said to be designed for scientists, researchers and technicians who must work in a highly magnetic environment.
These watches. The box has a diameter of 42mm, which is not too big compared to modern watches. Today, most sports chronographs are over 44 mm in size, so the latest Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition is a little smaller and will definitely delight readers who like medium-sized watches. . Unfortunately, at a little over 15mm, the case is still very serious, and the disease plagues many modern sports notes. On the bright side, this watch, along with the clunky crown and timer, ensures that these special versions of the “genius” chronograph watch have a considerable wrist.
Internally, these new Ingenieur special edition watches will be powered by IWC’s internal caliber 69370. This sport is designed to replace the Valjoux 7750 used in entry-level Fake IWC Watches chronograph watches. Therefore, the diameter 69370 has the same dimensions as the Valjoux 7750, but with two significant improvements. It features a column wheel instead of a basic cam and a more efficient winding system. The power reserve is 46 hours and the dial configuration is similar to the Valjoux 7750 with sub-scales at 12, 9 and 6 o’clock. However, the key difference is that the run time of the aperture 69370 is 6 points instead of 9. This action is done very well and can be enjoyed through a sapphire display box.
The most exclusive of these is the “74th Session of the Members” held in Goodwood. It has a red gold box and a black dial with a red gold accent. The tachometer scale on the ring and the markings on the sub-dial have traces of rose gold. Time stamps are also unusual because they consist of a lume point and an application stick marker. Both materials are red gold and are used with luminescent materials. Time is easily read from the heavy baton style, which also applies to lume.
To distinguish between a stopwatch and a stopwatch, the second hand is a solid red arrow pointer. The hands of the seconds hand and the 12 hours and 30 minutes are all red red tips. Speaking of 12-hour and 30-minute registers, the last 2 hours and 5 minutes of each register are marked in red. This makes these registers look like a fuel gauge for a car, turning red when the tank is nearly empty. At 3 o’clock there is an inconspicuous date window with a black date wheel so that it doesn’t stand out from the dial and the rosy gold font. very cool.
The black calfskin strap is very soft and the vintage look complements the watch. As I said before, black and gold are a win-win combination. So in this trio, the “74th Goodwood Member Conference” is my favorite, it is only 74 pieces, the most unique of all works.
In other words, “Wa 125” will be the second place. This model is designed to pay tribute to the Mercedes-Benz W-125 Silver Arrow, a racing car designed for the 1937 Grand Prix. Driven by Rudolf Caracciola, it won the 1937 European Grand Prix. A year later, Caracciola used a modified version of the W 125 to create a new public road speed record at an astonishing 268.7 miles.
The IWC Ingenieur chronograph version “W 125” is made of a titanium case with a silver-plated dial that can easily be mistaken for white. In order to replace the rose gold accent, the black accent of the Ingenieur timer “W 125” is in stark contrast to the silver-white dial. The marks on the tachometer scale and the marks on the scales are all black. The bat-like hand is also black and is characterized by a large number of luminescent materials. The style of the time stamp is also very similar, marked with a lume dot and a black smudge stick marker. The white lume is used for timing markers to create a harmonious black and white color scheme. The 3-point date has a white date wheel and a black date font. The perfect look is a retro-style calf leather black belt. Among the three models, the most recognizable is the Ingenieur timer “W 125”. This model is limited to 750 pieces.
Last but not least, we have “Rudolf Caracciola”. This watch is to pay tribute to Rudolf Karachola, one of the best racing drivers of his time. He won the Mercedes-Benz three times in the European Drivers’ Championship, the equivalent of today’s f1 World Championship; three times the European Mountaineering Championship; and created countless speed records in his time. . Incredibly, 144 of the 204 games he participated in won the first place.
“Rudolf Caracciola” is a stainless steel case and slate dial. The tachometer’s scale and sub-scale marks are all white. The application indexes for timing and minute hands and timing marks are all rhodium-plated. Similarly, the timing and timing indicators and the application indicators for the timing marks are characterized by a fake retro color. The 3-point date is a slate-colored date wheel and a white font that helps make it look less awkward. The overall packaging is a black calf leather belt stitched in an old-fashioned sports car in the same style leather seat.
I found this model to be a bit mismatched, mainly because of the artificial retro lume. I’m not sure if IWC Replica is trying to pursue retro inspiration here, but the overall style of the piece seems to be a bit mismatched. In other words, I believe this model will have its fans. I know that many collectors prefer the luma of the artificial year because it makes the watch look warmer, less cold and barren. “Rudolf Calasila” is also limited to 750 pieces.
Even if you are not interested in old-fashioned cars or regular cars, the three special editions of the Ingenieur chronograph are still beautiful watches. From the IWC’s focus on these new products, IWC has spent a lot of effort to update its Ingenieur watches. I especially like IWC to match the date wheel to the color of the dial. I also like the unique design of the time stamp and the excellent strap.
Overall, I particularly like the black and rose combination of the Ingenieur timer “74th Goodwood Member Conference”, and I think that the Ingenieur timer “W 125” will appeal to anyone looking for a non-nonsense Modern timer man. Finally, if you like the new retro-style watch, Rudolf Caracciola is the most worth seeing.
Interest in pricing these new products. Unsurprisingly, the “74 people at Goodwood’s conference” was the most expensive, priced at $17,200, which is not too bad for a limited-edition precious metal timer with internal motion. On the other hand, the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “w125” and the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “Rudolf Caracciola” are priced at $7,150, which is unusual because titanium watches are usually slightly more expensive.
