The reference IW378405 features a silver-plated dial with luminescence and black alligator leather strap. The IWC Big Ingenieur Chronograph IW378406 model has a black dial and matching color alligator leather strap.
The massive stainless steel case of Big Ingenieur Chronograph measures a diameter of 45.7 mm and thickness of 14.7 mm.
Equipped with in-house IWC 89361 Calibre, the watch displays hours, minutes, seconds and the date. This 40 jewel automatic movement also offers chronograph function with flyback mechanism. Moreover, it offers a power reserve of approximately 68 hours.
