IWC Schaffhausen: Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood”

IWC INGENIEUR CHRONOGRAPH EDITION 74TH MEMBERS MEETING GOODWOOD

At the 74th Goodwood Members’ Meeting, IWC Schaffhausen unveiled three special editions from the Ingenieur watch family. Available in a limited edition of just 74 watches, the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood” is a tribute to this legendary motorsport event in the south of England. But the Ingenieur Chronograph Editions “Rudolf Caracciola” and “W 125”, both available in a limited edition of 750, likewise bring the fascination of classic motorsport to the wearer’s wrist. And the new IWC manufactured 69370 calibre makes its debut appearance in all three models.

Since 1955, the name Ingenieur has stood for uncompromising engineering, ultimate performance and technical innovation. Now, IWC Schaffhausen continues the success story, which has run for over 60 years, with three special editions.

The Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood”(Ref. IW380703) alludes to this year’s legendary historic motorsport event near the south coast of England. The most conspicuous feature of the timepiece, which is limited to 74 watches, is the solid red gold case measuring 42 millimetres in diameter.

With its elegant simplicity, it is distinctly different from Gérald  Genta’s technically inspired case design, as previously used for the Ingenieur, and gives the watch its classic appeal. The black dial with its two totalizers, small seconds and tachymeter scale running round the outer edge clearly takes its cue from the dashboard of a gutsy sports car. The beautifully worked brown calfskin strap likewise recalls the luxurious interior of classic motor cars.

All the special editions are powered by the new IWC-manufactured 69370 calibre. The column-wheel chronograph movement comprises more than 200 components. It is 30 millimetres in diameter and 7.9 millimetres high. After 1,123 revolutions of the rotor, the bidirectional pawl-winding system has built up a power reserve of 46 hours. The balance oscillates at a rate of 4 Hz and guarantees a high level of precision. The movement has 33 jewels, and decorations consisting of Geneva stripes and circular graining.
