Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillon holds a special place in the IWC Ingenieur family. The watch features a patented constant-force mechanism integrated in a tourbillon. The double moon phases for the northern and southern hemispheres display depicts the surface of the earth’s natural satellite so realistically that even tiny craters can be recognized.
The 94800-calibre basic movement features two barrels. It provides the energy for the higher torque required to drive the constant-force tourbillon and also provides the moon phase module with the necessary power. The double barrel movement has 96 hour power reserve when fully wound. The moon phase module shows the number of days until the next full moon.
The inspiration for the design on the movement side came from a sports car’s engine block. Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillon adorns platinum and ceramic case with a black alligator leather strap. The watch has water resistant to 12 bar. The price of this beautiful watch is $290,000.
Since 1868, the IWC has been creating unique high quality watches that are different from others in many ways. Each product family represents a different theme. First watch for the Ingenieur family was launched in 1976. It was legendary Ingenieur SL, Reference 1832, designed by Gérald Genta. In the early 1970s, a diver’s helmet was the main inspiration for this remarkable designer.
