Back to these IWC Ingenieur Fake watches. Case diameter is a relatively modest 42mm, which isn’t too large as far as modern watches go. Most sport chronographs tend to be around 44mm and above these days, so the slightly smaller size of these new Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition watches is bound to delight readers who love more moderately sized watches. Unfortunately, at slightly over 15mm, the case is still quite thick, a malady that afflicts many modern sport chronographs. On the bright side, this, along with the chunky crown and chronograph pushers, ensures that these special edition Luxury Ingenieur Chronograph Replica watches have considerable wrist presence.
On the inside, these new Ingenieur Chronograph Special Edition watches will be powered by IWC’s in-house Caliber 69370. This movement was specifically developed to replace the Valjoux 7750 used in entry-level IWC chronograph Copy watches. As a result, the Caliber 69370 shares the same dimensions as the Valjoux 7750, but with two notable improvements. It features a column wheel instead of a basic cam, and has a more efficient winding system. Power reserve is 46 hours and the dial configuration is similar to the Valjoux 7750, with sub-dials at 12, 9, and 6 o’clock as well. The key difference, however, is that the running seconds of the Caliber 69370 is at 6 o’clock rather than 9 o’clock. The movement is nicely finished and can be admired through a sapphire display case back.
To distinguish the running seconds hand from the chronograph registers, the running seconds hand is a solid red arrow hand. The hands for the IWC Replica Watches US chronograph seconds hand as well as the 12-hour and 30-minute registers are red gold with red tips. Speaking of the 12-hour and 30-minute registers, the last 2 hours and 5 minutes of each respective register is marked in red. This makes the registers look like the fuel gauges of race cars, which turn red as the tank nears empty. There’s an unobtrusive date window at 3 o’clock, which features a black date wheel so that it stands out less from the dial and rose gold fonts for the date. Very cool.
