IWC Schaffhausen’s Ingenieur Is Ready For The Track

Watches | 9 March 2015

In its role as the Official Engineering Partner of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team, IWC has created new works of haute horlogerie in the form of the limited edition Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic.

IWC INGENIEUR AUTOMATIC CARBON PERFORMANCE CERAMIC

The Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic by IWC Schaffhausen is a thoroughbred sports watch with a case inspired by the materials used in Formula 1. As is well-known, carbon fibre is ideally suited for use in motor racing. IWC Schaffhausen has utilized the unique properties of this material, which is twice as strong as steel but only a fifth of the weight, and integrated it into the construction of its watch cases.

 

The Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic is a piece of high-tech engineering with a carbon-fibre case and, as a new feature in this model, also has a mirror-finished ceramic bezel. The middle section of the case, which is held together by five screws, is manufactured according to the same principle as the core features of a racing car. The watch’s dial is also made of carbon fibre. It fits perfectly with the authentic motorsport look and gives the watch a visual sense of depth. For other parts of the case, IWC designers likewise took their inspiration from the materials used in motor racing. Ceramic for the bezel, screw heads, crown and crown protection, titanium for the screws and case-back ring, and rubber for the underside of the strap with its calf- skin inlay. The strap is sewn with green thread as an allusion to the stripes on the outer walls of the tyres fitted to the cars for racing in wet conditions.
