This Ingenieur Automatic AMG watch is the first luscious fruit of the partnership between IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes- AMG, the high-end automobile specialist. The two companies share a joy in precision and perfection, for watches as well as for automobiles.
The Ingenieur Automatic AMG houses the new 80110 calibre automatic movement and the Pellaton winding system. The precision high-performance motor, designed for the continual strain of everyday use as well as for the extraordinary extreme situation, perfected by the construction engineers and finished and mounted with a high level of craftsmanship. And it’s protected by a soft-iron inner case against magnetic fields of up to 80,000 A/m (amperes per metre).
The Ingenieur Automatic Edition AMG features a robust case made of titanium, which IWC introduced in the 1980s. They were the first Swiss company to use titanium in the construction of watch cases. It is lighter than steel, comfortable to wear, durable, fully anti-magnetic and absolutely allergy-free.
The dial design, which underlines its relationship to sporty automobiles with a strong instrument panel look and the exciting but discreet use of signal red elements, all stunningly implemented in the beautiful ensemble of a precision timepiece. The partnership between IWC in Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland and Mercedes-AMG in Affalterbach in southern Germany, is communicated by an engraving on the case back.
