The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph is a sports watch of legendary pedigree – rugged, of distinguished design, and calling upon a rich history. The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph completely fulfills the design parameters of the basic model Ingenieur, but offers the added benefits and technical prowess of a chronograph mechanism.
Water resistant to an impressive 120 meters, the 42.5 mm case of the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph is a daunting yet elegant sculpture, which performs an important task: to protect the precise chronograph mechanism within, the IWC caliber 79350. With automatic winding, and boasting a power reserve of 44 hours, this movement is capable of measuring time intervals of up to 30 minutes in duration. A tachymeter flange around the periphery of the dial gives this chronograph another function – the ability to show average speed, production rates, etc.–with accuracy to within 1/8 of a second.
The IWC Ingenieur family of watches have long been famous for their resistance to exceptionally strong magnetic fields, and the Ingenieur Chronograph is no exception: Beneath the screwed-down steel caseback, a cage made of soft iron perfectly protects the movement against the ravages of magnetism. Available in stainless steel on a massive and secure matching bracelet which is fully integrated into the case, the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph combines the legendary durability and performance of the Ingenieur line, with the technical fascination and precision inherent in a fine chronograph.
