IWC – Ingenieur Dual Time Ref. IW324402 and IW324404
2013 was the time of the Ingenieur for IWC and truth be told the Schauffhausen-based watchmaker presented many new Ingenieur models last year. Yet, more oddities in this assortment are in transit.
The new IWC Ingenieur Dual Time displays a second time zone, indicated by a hand with a sharpened stone tip on the external 24-hour ring.
To make it simpler to separate among day and night, the top portion of the ring, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., is hazier than the lower half. The time can be progressed or turned around in one-hour steps through the crown, in any event, when crossing the International Date Line.
Energetic and dynamic, the 43 mm hardened steel case features the signature bezel with five striking bores. Uniquely in contrast to the new Ingenieur models, where the bores have a simple stylish capacity, the first Ingenieur SL (ref. 1832) model, designed by Gerald Genta in 1976, had five useful openings put straightforwardly on the edge itself, where they initially served to stand firm on it solidly in situation.
The case, water impervious to 120 meters, secures oneself winding Caliber 35720 beating at 28,800 vibrations each hour and offering 42 hours of force save.
The new Ingenieur Dual Time is accessible with a dark (ref. IW324402) or a silver-plated (ref. IW324404) dial.
