$ 4,800 Sold Out
One of the descendants of the famous IWC Ingenieur designed by Gérald Genta in 1976, the reference 3227 has a sporty steel case with the typical sleek dial and rectangular indexes seen in the earliest models from this collection. Originally introduced in the 1950s, the Ingenieur collection was meant to offer watches that were not just highly precise but also robust enough to withstand the effects magnetism, thanks to a soft-iron cage. It was also the first line to use the self-winding system developed by Albert Pellaton, IWC’s technical director at the time. Pellaton’s winding system transformed the rotational movements of the rotor into an oscillating motion, allowing the bidirectional rotational movements of the rotor to be used for tensioning the mainspring.
The Ingenieur Automatic is a classic round watch with three hands, a date window at 3 o’clock and a case measuring 42.5 mm in diameter. The present example is a model from 2007 equipped with automatic calibre 80110 that has a powerful reserve of 44 hours.
