IWC AAA Ingenieur Automatic IW357001 Big Discount Replica Watches
The Ingenieur Automatic is a simple three-hand watch with a date window at “3 o’clock” and a diameter of 40 millimetres. With its simple dial, characteristic luminescent dots and polished bezel, it most closely resembles the Ingenieur models of the 1950s. This model has a silver-plated dial and a black alligator leather strap.
However, the Ingenieur Automatic is indeed anti-magnetic, and that’s a terrific thing. The opinion wears very, very well, on the incorporated IWC bracelet. Inside this opinion is a ETA 2892, which we’re convinced will turn off a couple of people, but it is really not a huge deal. The reason we say that is that: IWC does not make an in-house movement that can fit into a 40mm case. Think about it. The tiniest watch IWC makes with an in-house movement is the 42.3millimeter Portuguese Automatic and that retails for over $12,000. Additionally, a number of the very best IWC watches ever made housed ETA and Valjoux movements (believe the Pilot’s chronograph 3705). Because IWC chose to use an ETA movement here, the price is about half of what it would be if they’d used one of their own calibers – $6600. Additionally, the anti-magnetic cage, case and bracelet work on this watch do the price justice.
The integrated steel bracelet is similarly an homage to the original, featuring brushed H-shaped links with rectangular centers. Unlike a lot of sports watches on the market today, IWC’s designers controlled themselves on the situation back, which can be solid steel rather than the seemingly ubiquitous display back. Anyone who has read my previous reviews knows that I’m not fond of screen backs on anything but the most outstanding of fabrication moves, so I was happy not to have any reason to complain here!
