IWC today is launching essentially the same watch with a few basic aesthetic tweaks along with three completely new models – a time-only, two chronograph models, and a chronograph perpetual calendar – in what is now a new IWC Ingenieur Replica Replica Watches.
All this was to say that things are going back to basics in the same way as we discovered with the old-new Da Vinci: the Best IWC Ingenieur Automatic 40mm Watches, closest to the original among the four new models, offers a good conservative size with an “IWC caliber 35111” beating inside. The 35111 is a base Sellita SW300 which in turn is an ETA 2892 clone.
The US IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Replica Watches are a modest 42mm wide, clad in stainless steel or 18k red gold and sport what is an ample 120m depth rating. Inside is what we’re told to be an all-new movement called the IWC Caliber 69375.The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is a titanium-clad, 44mm-wide alternative to the aforementioned triple-register sporting a more complex IWC Caliber 89361. It offers a more impressive 68 hours of power reserve, a more advanced automatic winding system and the more sophisticated display of chronograph hours and minutes on one sub-dial at 12 o’clock.
The heavy-hitter in the new-for-2017 collection is the IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month, a 45mm-wide and 17.5mm-thick piece in 18k red gold, based on what is a truly impressive movement, the IWC Replica Swiss Made Caliber 89800. Built on the same 89000 foundations as the Chronograph Sport, this piece further adds a perpetual calendar to the mix, spiced up with digital indications for the month and date at 2 and 10 o’clock, respectively. A neat design tweak is how the apertures are framed by what appear to be sub-dials – although the functionless tracks on their periphery might come across as a design no-no in the eyes of watch design purists.
This latest extension of the round-again Cheap IWC Replica is a sensible move unless you are one of those last year thinking that was a rare opportunity. From the 40mm-wide automatics through the chronographs, these make for a solid core collection while the perpetual calendar continues to impress with that special movement. The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Sport very explicitly lacks colors rendering it more safe than exciting of a design.
