Although the new IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Replica Review collection is presented as three, we expect that IWC will shortly follow-up with a regular collection of Ingenieur watches in the same new ‘Reference 666’ style. The fact that IWC introduces this new model in limited quantities, doesn’t match with the thought that this new model will be the Ingenieur from now on. This probably means that IWC will continue to create new watches with similar design features in the near future.
These three watches have their own specific characteristics, but what they have in common are the new in-house developed caliber 69370 movement, a diameter of Best IWC Replica 42mm and a leather strap with ‘AMG’ stitching. Not sure whether this is the official name for it, but it reminded me of the leather AMG interior. The rectangular pushers are nicely done and luckily, no crown guards. The water resistance of the watch is 6 bar.
The movement is part of the new caliber 69000 family, which is IWC’s answer to Breitling’s caliber B01, Omega’s caliber 9300 and Rolex’ caliber 4130. A 30mm column-wheel chronograph movement with 46 hours of power reserve. This family of movements will be mainly used in Fake IWC Watches below the magical 10.000 Swiss Francs/Euro price category.
This model comes with a beautiful slate colored dial and a stainless steel case. The case shows resemblance with the original Ingenieur 666 from 1955. It comes on a brown leather strap with the ‘AMG stitching’.
The fact that the IWC Ingenieur is moving away from the Genta design is something we pity a bit, but the new Ingenieur ‘Vintage’ Chronograph looks actually stunning in the flesh. The diameter of 42mm is refreshing, as most new IWC Replica Watches chronographs are often over 42mm. We were a bit surprised that IWC doesn’t charge more for the titanium model over the stainless steel Ingenieur Chronograph.
