Originally launched in the 1950s, and then redesigned by the late Gérald Génta in 1976, the Ingenieur is one of the most classic IWC timepieces. At SIHH 2013 — which begins January 21st — IWC Schaffhausen will launch a redesigned Ingenieur collection. The Ingenieur Automatic (shown) is the only model that has been previewed so far, but expect multiple new models to launch at the start of SIHH, including a chronograph.
The Ingenieur Automatic is presented in a sleek 40 mm by 10 mm stainless steel case. It is available with a black dial, a silver-plated dial or a silver-plated dial with rose gold plated hands and markers. A soft-iron inner case protects against magnetic fields up to 40,000 A/m. The Ingenieur is powered by caliber 30110 which runs 28,800 (4hz), with 21 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. The bracelet is stainless-steel with a folding clasp. The sapphire crystal is flat and features an antireflective coating on both sides. Solid case back, water-resistance 120 meters.(Ref.
