Description

The IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Edition, Rudolf Caracciola limited to 750 pieces. The Ingenieur line was introduced in 1955 to help technicians and researchers offering protection against magnetic fields up to 80,000 amperes per meters whilst maintaining a high level of precision. It is a line that has continued to offer value to professionals throughout their timeline.

Even though I am not a big fan of the Inegnieur range I was pleasantly surprised the first time I saw the Rudolf Caracciola edition, it is timelessly elegant, with an angled flange for the tachymeter scale, a broad bezel, and a slate gray sunray-pattern dial.

The Ingenieur’s engineering look comes into play with indexes drawn between the two- and three-digit numbers and a zero added to the left of the single-digit numbers on the sub-dials. Even the date has a leading zero. The use of red on some of the scales and on the pointer tips of the chronograph and seconds hands adds a touch of sportiness.

The saddle-stitched leather strap, which calls to mind the upholstery on a car seat, convey a retro look and works really well to compliment the case and dial. This model is named after race car driver Rudolf Caracciola. Born in 1901, he was driving his parents’ Mercedes-Knight even before he got his driver’s license at age 15. Beginning in 1926, he won numerous Grand Prix and sports car races behind the wheel of a Mercedes and was one of his era’s most successful race car drivers.

Condition of watch is perfect with no visible signs of wear, box is impressive and comes with all additional booklets and card. If you have any additional questions please get in touch will be glad to help.
