The IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Replica Watches features a rose gold case, the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “Rudolf Caracciola” is in a stainless steel case, and the IWC Ingeniuer Chronograph Edition “W 125” is a titanium version. These last two will each have a 750-watch run.
The new 42mm-wide and 15mm-high case features two totalizers, small seconds dial, and tachymeter on the outer edge. US IWC Replica says this design is inspired by the dashboard of a vintage sports car – but whatever its design roots are, it is a distinctly new design when compared to the Gerald Genta-designed case of previous IWC Ingenieurs. Angular lines, integrated lugs, and crown protectors are gone. No bezel screws, rubber, plastic, or anything of the sort.
Aesthetic reboot aside, there’s a new movement here too, with the in-house IWC Replica caliber. This is an automatic chronograph movement that has date, stopwatch, and small hacking seconds. The movement is made up of 200 parts and measures 30mm wide by 7.9mm high. It operates at a frequency of 28,800vph and has a 46-hour power reserve.
The black dial with rose gold and red gold has pretty classic, old-school good looks, and I think 42mm Cheap IWC Replica is the ideal case size, not something like 46mm. Personally, I don’t love the red used on the subdials – I understand the racing and automotive inspiration, but it looks a little confused to me.
On a brown calfskin strap, the IWC Fake Watches 42mm case is done in stainless steel with a slate-colored dial. The hands and appliqués are in rhodium and, as I mentioned before, the red on the sub dials looks pretty good in these press photos.
The first of the two new ladies’ watches is the US IWC Replica Watches Da Vinci Automatic 36 Ref.IW458312, in stainless steel with an intense blue dial that is a nod to a vintage ladies’ IWC. The company has been making ladies’ wristwatches since the 1930s; in fact, its first wristwatches were for ladies, since pocket watches were still the preferred timepieces for men. The bezel of the steel model, shown above, is set with 54 diamonds totaling just under a carat. There are five references in the collection, including gold pieces with and without diamonds, and various colored straps, including raspberry and bronze. It contains the automatic Best IWC Da Vinci Replica Watches Caliber 35111, with a 42-hour power reserve.
The second piece is the IWC Da Vinci Automatic 36 Moonphase Ref. IW459308. The moon phase indication is also signature to the Top Swiss IWC Replica Da Vinci line. In 1958, IWC introduced a remarkable ladies’ wristwatch with chronograph and moon phase functions. The time function was powered by a quartz movement – a very new invention at the time – and the moon phase and chronograph functions were powered by a mechanical movement. The new Moon Phase model is 36mm wide, with a rose gold case and a brown alligator strap. It contains the automatic Caliber 35800, with a 42-hour power reserve.
The cases and crowns of the new models have been refined, without losing the original proportions or the double bezel with its peripheral grooves. And while the originals had indexes on the dial, the new models have applied Arabic numerals. There is also a new butterfly clasp. The round case shape of both new models is important because it is a link to the collection’s muse, Leonardo Da Vinci, the Renaissance inventor, artist and all-round genius. Cheap IWC Replica was obsessed with the aesthetic harmony of the perfect circle and the “golden ratio,” a formula for the most pleasing proportions of design.
The new ladies’ IWC Fake Watches are ideal daily wear pieces. As Knoop pointed out, “IWC is not a romantic, playful brand. The watches are very clean cut. We are a brand with roots in pocket watches.” At this particular moment, when luxury is struggling, people are shying away from anything too decorative, and this fits the bill perfectly. It also fits the more conservative trend in ladies’ watches at the moment.
