My Collection
IWC 8531 “Mixte” Ingenieur--a very unusual Ingenieur from the period where IWC was trying novel approaches to selling watches. This watch is 18kt yellow gold shell over a stainless steel back, thus cutting back on the price of a gold watch. Besides the original black dial, the coolest thing is the date wheel has the date in gold! Ref. 866AD
IWC “Jumbo” Ingenieur--Designed by great watch designer, Gerald Genta in the mid 1970s, this is IWC’s attempt to capture the “sport” market of high-end steel sports watch. Unfortunately for IWC, this was the boom of the smaller, thinner quartz watch and only 534 of these watches were ever produced in steel. This watch features the fine antimagnetic 8541 ES movement. Ref:1832
IWC Ingenieur Pocket Watch--Only IWC would create the world’s only antimagnetic waterproof pocketwatch. Made in 1987 and based on the 19-jewel 9520 movement, this watch weighs more than 250 grams.
IWC Portugueser 2000 in Rose Gold--Only 750 pieces were made in rose gold and this watch features the incredible 5000 movement which can run for 8 days without winding. Simply a gorgeous and large dress watch. Ref. 5000
IWC DoppelChronograph with white dial--I changed this dial from a printed black and white pilot’s dial to a “dressier” white with applied gold markers and gold hands. The two chronograph hands are red and blue. The subdial hands are “blued” also. A stunning watch. IWC should consider making their pilot’s watches with white dials. Ref. 3713
