IWC Best Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood” IW380703 Swiss Made Replica

The Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood” is a tribute to the 74th edition of the legendary historic motorsport event held near the south coast of England. The most eye-catching feature of this timepiece, which is limited to 74 watches, is the solid red gold case with a diameter of 42 millimetres. With its elegant simplicity, it marks a departure from Gérald Genta’s technical case design previously used for the Ingenieur family and lends the new models a more classic look. The black dial with two totalizers, the small seconds subdial and the tachymeter scale that runs along its edge are based on the dashboard of a high-performance sports car. The attractive brown calfskin strap is reminiscent of the exclusive leather interiors of classic cars.

That said, I still feel the IWC Ingenieur has its own group of dedicated fans and followers, who aren’t bothered by these concerns. It is a timepiece with character, both due its design but also because of its (Genta) history. It’s very tricky to keep a iconic timepiece and keep it fresh every now and then without sacrificing its core (design) values. IWC succeeded in that with this IWC Ingenieur benchmark 3239. In SIHH last January, IWC released their new Ingenieur collection, featuring over a dozen new timepieces in the revamped line. While most press attention from the collection concentrated on the in-house calibers, casing materials and array of complications from the new 46mm models, I was personally won over by the smallest and simplest of the group — the newest 40mm steel automatic “base model”, mention 3239.

This season, the business is expanding its offering with four new models, including three new variants of this chronograph. The new models are a aggressive stainless steel automatic three-hander that looks even more like a vintage ref. 666A, to some luxury perpetual calendar. The new but vintage-inspired Ingenieur Automatic, a 40mm three-hander with a little window at three o’clock.
