Another Friday! In this series, we take one classic Replica Watches and choose our favorite references ever produced.Though there may be some overlap, it’s not a question of which references are the most collectible or of the highest value on the market.
IWC’s main attraction for 2023 is the return of the Ingenieur
That watch was introduced in 1976 and is part of Genta’s famous Royal Oak, Nautilus, and Ingenieur trilogy. For many fans, this year marks the long-awaited revival of a classic, a watch that should have always been part of the Cheap IWC Replica collection. But the history of the Ingenieur goes back a lot further than Genta’s version of IWC’s engineer watch. The legacy started back in 1954 when the Schaffhausen brand introduced the first Ingenieur.
The concept of an engineer’s watch
The main features necessary were precision timekeeping, antimagnetic properties, and substantial water resistance. While such a watch was perfect for scientists, engineers, and explorers, essentially, it could be a great daily IWC Replica Watches Shop that anyone could wear without having to worry that it would break.

The watch featured a 36.5mm case that was 13.2mm thick. It was based on the case that Buy Nice IWC Replica Watches used for its famous Mark XI. The substantial thickness was mainly caused by the Faraday cage inside the case. This soft iron cage protected the movement against magnetic fields up to 80,000 amperes per meter. On top of that, the watch was water resistant to 100 meters.
Both these movements operated at 19,800vph, had a 42-hour power reserve, and featured the Pellaton winding system. The Copy Watch came with either a black or white silvered dial and a set of luminescent dauphine hands. Several dials from the first series featured numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock. But there were versions without the numerals too, as well as ones with numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. The steel models came with either a leather strap or a steel bracelet. The 18K gold version on a leather strap looks super classy.

This new model had a slightly bigger 37mm case with increased water resistance to 120 meters. It featured new hands and came with new indices as well. Once again, IWC replica watches come from China offered the stainless steel model on a leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
The gold model came on a leather strap only. IWC offered the ref. 866 with a wider variety of dial colors. The silver and black dial remained on offer, and IWC added a blue and gilt dial. In another slight change compared to their predecessors, all of the new models featured sunray dials for some extra style.
IWC Ingenieur SL “Jumbo” ref. 1832
As we all know, alongside the Royal Oak and the Nautilus, it is part of his famous trilogy of modern sports watches with integrated bracelets. I have explained before that what I adore about Genta’s trilogy is the exploration of shapes, from octagonal with the Royal Oak to square with the Nautilus and round with the Ingenieur swiss replica watches. Because of its most traditional shape, the Ingenieur is also the least exciting of the three.
