Like I already announced last Saturday, when I wrote about the new Ingenieur Automatic, IWC is seriously redesigning their Ingenieur Collection. Today we can show you the Ingenieur Chronograph Racer, that, like the Ingenieur AMG Black Series, results from the cooperation with Mercedes AMG Petronas.
The Ingenieur Chronograph Racer is powered by the IWC in-house automatic flyback chronograph calibre 89361, that we already know from the Portuguese Yacht Club. The totalizers of this movement’s chronograph are placed in one subdial at the 12 o’clock position and the central seconds hand sweeps along the bezel with an engraved tachymeter scale, true to its name ‘Racer’.
The 4 reference numbers of the Ingenieur Chronograph Racer:
- Ref. IW378507: stainless-steel case, slate-coloured dial, black rubber strap with textile inlay, pin buckle in stainless steel
- Ref. IW378508: stainless-steel case, slate-coloured dial, stainless-steel bracelet with fine-adjustment clasp
- Ref. IW378510: stainless-steel case, silver-plated dial, stainless-steel bracelet with fine-adjustment clasp
- Ref. IW378509: stainless-steel case, silver-plated dial, black rubber strap with textile inlay, pin buckle in stainless steel
For more information… you should wait until January, when the pieces will be presented at the SIHH 2013. If there’s news between now and then, I’ll keep you posted.
