IWC has unveiled its new collection of Ingenieur models, The watch design has been completely remodelled for 2013, with the collection turning its focus to its partnership with the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team.
The new collection is inspired by the materials used in motor sport such as carbon fibre, ceramic and titanium. The range includes the Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillon, the Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month and the Ingenieur Automatic AMG Black Series Ceramic. IWC's chief executive Georges Kern said: "The new Ingenieur collection boasts three distinct quality features: first-class IWC-manufactured movements, sophisticated functions and typical Formula One materials. Some of the in-house movements bear witness to the inventive spirit of our watchmakers [and] with complications like the tourbillon, perpetual calendar, digital big date and moon phase display, the Ingenieur watch line has finally taken its place in the upper echelons of haute horlogerie."
