IWC Schaffhausen celebrated the 50th anniversary celebrations of Mercedes-AMG at Germany’s famous Nürburgring race track and marked the event with the launch of a limited edition Ingenieur model. The new piece is reminiscent of the first generations of the original watch launched in the 1950s.
Limited to 250 pieces, the Ingenieur Chronograph Sport Edition “50th Anniversary of Mercedes-AMG” (Ref. IW380902) houses an IWC-manufactured 89361 caliber with flyback function. The case is made of titanium and the dial with tachymeter scale is silver-plated.
As with the first Ingenieur from 1955, the timepiece has a soft-iron cage for protection against magnetic fields. The lower part of the cage is visible through the sapphire-glass back and has been made to look like an AMG brake disc with indentations arranged in a radial formation.
“This is a sporty chronograph which combines precision engineering with spectacular design…it embodies precisely the values that unite our two companies. We would like to offer Mercedes-AMG our warmest congratulations on reaching this milestone.” Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen
