As a marking of tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Mercedes-AMG group, IWC unveils a new edition of its new Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Model that brings for the fusion of elegance marked by the titanium casing and new styling with different 5-minute dial markings.
The silver plated dial comes surrounded with a tachymeter that pretty much makes sense for a sports model which lets you determine the speed of the car.
The watch comes in a titanium casing with 44mm diameter and is 15.9mm thick. Another thing of this chronograph that is more pleasing to the eyes is the black calfskin strap which comes with some distinct white stitches.
The interesting thing about the Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Model is its back casing where IWC makes use of sapphire inset pane which lets users see through and protects the watch’s mechanical movements from the magnetic fields. However, the movements are not quite apparent, you still can see the soft iron case representing the AMG brake discs and indentations marked in a radial direction.
While at the first glimpse of the dial, you can make out that IWC makes use of the typical color combinations of a race track. While the other distinct feature of the watch is the 5-minute marking with the subdial chronographs placed at the 12-hour and 6-hour positions. The subdial at the 6’o clock position marks the seconds with the second’s-hand designed as a speed symbol.
While talking about its insides, the watch has a calibre 89361 movement clocked at 4Hz and a power reserve of 68 hours.
The Ingenieur Chronograph Sport costs 12.600 CHF / € 13.000 EUR.
