IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur Automatic AMG Titanium (2005)

Introduced in 2005, the Ingenieur Automatic AMG watch in titanium is the first luscious fruit of the partnership between IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes- AMG, the high-end automobile specialist.

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 self-winding IWC Calibre 80110 offers a power reserve of 44 hours. 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 watch comes with a black dial with large indexes and numerals. Its design underlines its relationship to sporty automobiles with a strong instrument panel look and the exciting but discreet use of signal red elements. It has two silver-toned, luminescent hands for indicating the hours and minutes, a large central hand in red color for seconds and a window at 3H for displaying the date.

Secured with sapphire crystal glass, screw-down crown, and a solid screw-down case-back, the  42mm diameter case is water resistant up to 120 meters. 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.

The IWC Ingenieur Automatic AMG titanium watch is available in two versions: reference IW322702 with a titanium bracelet and reference IW322703 with a soft black fabric strap.
