IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur Midsize Rose Gold Ref. IW451505 (2006)

Since 2006, the Ingenieur Midsize, the compact version of the large IWC classic in a case pared down to a diameter of just 34 mm, is  also available in rose gold.

The global launch of the new generation Ingenieur in the spring of 2005 was akin to the arrival of a new starship in the galaxy of precision timepieces. Coasting in its shadow came the IWC Ingenieur Midsize, with a 34 mm case to appeal to those enthusiasts of perfected micro-mechanics of both sexes who wish to impose a rather smaller burden on their wrist.

This is a watch of the highest utility value, which, with its automatic winding mechanism, date, centre seconds, sapphire glass coated on both sides and proven water resistance to a depth of 120 m, is the ideal companion in everyday life and for all sporting challenges.

IWC Ingenieur Midsize 34mm Rose Gold Reference IW451505

IWC Schaffhausen is known for its fine, invariably exceptional and particularly reliable watches. The Ingenieur Midsize has not only asserted its position in the IWC Ingenieur family from the outset, but has massively extended it: it has since established itself as one of the most attractive and desirable timepieces in this segment. That is why it is now also available in the seductive precious metal rose gold, which compliments its forms and proportions extremely well.

It also has a matching dark brown soft strap, made from the most resistant technical fibres that can be manufactured today. The colour contrast between the rose gold-plated hands and indices on the silvered dial ensures optimal readability – and combines elegance with the highest functionality.
