If you like IWC’s Ingenieur collection then you will want this one on your wrist. The Ingenieur has always been unpretentious, technical, usable. The latest piece which is constructed from titanium means that the chunky 45mm case is even comfortable, not an essential requirement when a watch looks this good.
Instantly recognisable as an Ingenieur, the changes are subtle but effective. Those five screw heads on the bezel are DLC coated and the crown and pushers are coated with grippy black rubber. The blue-on-black touches on the dial give the design a slight revamp but the refinements are harmonious, this is an IWC after all.
Bringing added kudos to the Ingenieur for the first time is the addition of a rattrapante or split-seconds timer, notoriously difficult to construct and integrate into a movement but one which is extremely useful and highly addictive. You will search for and find two entities to time at least once per day – children around the world often get fitter while running laps around the garden so Daddy can fiddle with his new rattrapante timepiece.
Inside the Ingenieur Double Chronograph Titanium is the Calibre 79230 with a power reserve of 44 hours and the piece comes presented on an integrated black rubber strap.
