IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur: A symbol of technical progress
The IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur line is perhaps the best embodiment of the philosophy of the Schaffhausen brand, which has been characterized by its willingness to innovate and invent new watches since its foundation. In the 1950s, as more and more electrical devices with magnetic fields began to become popular, the brand started to create watches with highly effective magnetic field protection in the form of a soft iron cage that shielded the movement.
The debut of the legendary Pellaton automatic movement
The IWC Schaffhausen engineers have always placed themselves entirely at the service of functionality, even when it comes to the outer appearance of the watches. The inner workings of IWC Schaffhausen watches have always been groundbreaking – along with magnetic field protection, the IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur was equipped with the company's first automatic movement winding on both sides, which was developed by the then Technical Director Albert Pellaton. The simple three-hand watch with the reference of 666, set standards in the field of technical watches.
State of the art technology
The more than 60-year success story of IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur continues today. The simple design, which has been carefully reworked over time, appeals to lovers of functional watches. Some models are driven by the legendary IWC manufacture caliber 69375, a representative of the 69000 caliber family. The chronograph movement in its classic column-wheel construction consists of over 200 individual parts. The balance is clocked at a frequency of four hertz and ensures a very high degree of accuracy and reliability, as befits an IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur.
