IWC presents new Ingenieur timepieces
Luxury Swiss watchmaker IWC has added to its long-standing Ingenieur collection with three new exclusive timepieces. Each one drawing inspiration from classic motorsports, the new chronograph watches – Ingenieur Chronograph Editions 'Rudolf Caracciola', W 125 and 74th Members' Meeting at Goodwood – all feature a mix of vintage charm with modern sophistication.
"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," said Georges Kern, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen. "Inside the case, the elegant, sporty timepieces feature the new in-house 69370 calibre, a significant watchmaking innovation in its own right."
The Ingenieur Chronograph Editions 'Rudolf Caracciola', limited to only 750 pieces, pays homage to three-time European Drivers' Championship winner Rudolf Caracciola and is made with a stainless steel case. Also limited to 750 pieces is the titanium-cased W 125, a nod to the dominant Mercedes-Benz W 125 Silver Arrow racing car of the '30s. Finally, the 74th Members' Meeting at Goodwood, with its solid red gold case, celebrates the historic motorsport event, which happened in England this March. The exclusive timepiece pays tribute to the event with a production of only 74 pieces.
The new timepieces from the Ingenieur collection will be available in the Middle East in October.
