IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Collection
At this year’s 74th Goodwood Members’ Meeting on the 19-20 March, IWC took the opportunity to honour the brand’s official timekeeping relationship with the motorsport event by releasing a trio of limited edition Ingenieur Chronographs. All of the timepieces feature the in-house calibre 69370, and are designed to capture the look of classic motoring.
The IW380703, dubbed the ‘74th Members' Meeting at Goodwood’, is a tribute to this year’s event and is numbered to only 74 pieces. Encased in a timeless red gold case of 42mm, the elegant black dial features three subdials and a tachymeter scale that are inspired by the dashboards of classic cars.
Dedicated to famed German racing driver Rudolf Caracciola, who won three European Drivers’ Championships in the 1930s, the IW380702—which is named after the man himself—is a sporty stainless steel beauty. There are 750 of these watches available, and the slate-coloured dial similarly has a vintage appeal.
Last but by no means least, the IW380701, or ‘W 125’, is a subtle nod to the Mercedes-Benz W125 Silver Arrow. Also limited to 750 pieces, this model has a silver-plated dial with black hands and appliqués that make it reminiscent of the iconic car from the 1930s.
