The present watch from the 1960s continues the tradition of high-quality tool watches that began when IWC introduced the “Ingenieur” in 1954. This example, however, breaks from IWC's classic round watch pattern and introduces an appealing square shape. A symbol of reliability, this timepiece features a well-preserved steel case with sharp corners and edges. The dial is extremely charming with a mesmerizing deep black color, embellished with applied baton indexes and a date window at 3 o’clock. In its simplicity, this watch is both elegant and appealing.
