https://www.thewatchbox.com/watches/iwc IWC's Ingenieur is the luxury watch for techies, gear-heads, and engineering professionals. From its mid-1950s roots as a pure professional tool to its glory days at the hand of designer Gerald Genta in 1976, the Ingenieur has flown the flag for IWC Schaffhausen's impeccable sense of technical style. This IWC Ingenieur Automatic 3234-01 is a 44mm fusion of stainless steel and high-tech ceramic that picks up the Ingenieur's historic mantle as IWC's top technical timepiece. The scratch-resistant ceramic keeps the bezel looking new while its matte black profile offer's a techie's take on traditional high-horology two-tone watches. Inside the ceramic bezel, IWC equips this Ingenieur Automatic with an engaging and lively tricolor dial. Black, white, and accents of red are the "gold standard" for a handsome modern sports watch (or sports car) color palette, and IWC's designers blends the colors with deft style sense. A textured dial base offers a wink to the enthusiast thanks to a subtle interlocking "I" motif, and high grade applied elements add depth to the hour and minute tracks. Within the 44mm stainless steel Ingenieur case, IWC provides its in-house caliber 80111 automatic. With a shock-protected Pellaton bi-directional pawl winding system and a 44-hour power reserve, IWC's 28-jewel movement is ready for any Engineer or "Ingenieur's" daily grind.
