IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer

by

IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer

IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer was created in 2013 when the IWC Schaffhausen partnered with Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team. Both companies brought their own designers and engineers to create something that would break the standards for precision and performance at the time. This is how IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer was created with a stainless steel case and with the Formula One engraving. The timepiece was a great success and it was considered to be one of the best watches of the year. Its design, a very rough and masculine one, was paired with the most efficient type of movement the 8936` caliber which helps create a unique watch. The watch features a tachymeter scale where you can calculate the average speed for up to 1 km. Other features include the interesting flyback function that allows the wearer to reset the stopwatch to zero and then restart timing. This was created to suggest that the watch is a great tool for racers as it can record pit stop time extremely easy.

Design wise the watch is combined with a black rubber strap that has a black alligator leather inlay for a very comfortable feel. It features a mechanical chronograph movement with 38 jewels and an incredible 68 hour power reserve when it is fully wound.

The watch is available with a slate colored dial and black totalizers or on a silver dial with silver totalizers and blue hands. Whatever model you prefer, you will certainly love the color scheme that has been chosen for its design as both of them are very masculine and quite contemporary chic. Both types of dials also have elements that suggest the combined efforts of the companies, for example the red 60 was inspired by the digital display of the Mercedes Petronas steering wheel on the team racing car.

Both models feature a date display with a crown activated rapid advance along with stopwatch functions with hours, minutes and small hacking seconds. The sapphire glass is flat and has been coated with anti-reflective substances on both sides. When it comes to its diameter, the watch case has a measure that will perfectly adjust to smaller and bigger wrists, with a 45 mm case it is a great addition to your watch collection. The water resistance of the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer is about 12 bar which allows you to go for a swim while wearing it in safety but definitely avoid diving with it.
