Two New Highly Com­pli­cated IWC In­ge­nieur Watches In Red Gold For 2015

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - Watches -

Two new and in­deed highly com­pli­cated ad­di­tions to the IWC In­ge­nieur fam­ily for 2015 are the IWC In­ge­nieur Con­stant-Force Tour­bil­lon and the IWC In­ge­nieur Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar Dig­i­tal Date-Month, both now avail­able in a new col­or­way dom­i­nated by red gold. This grants us the op­por­tu­nity to take a closer look at th­ese sim­i­lar and yet oh-so-dif­fer­ent watches from IWC. Start­ing off with the big (well, big­ger) gun, the IWC In­ge­nieur Con­stant Force Tour­bil­lon is what it says on the cover – and, in fact, quite a bit more. The tour­bil­lon, as you may have seen in the video of the $750,000 Por­tuguese Sidérale Sca­fu­sia, has a ”dead-beat” tick­ing mo­tion to it, ad­vanc­ing once ev­ery sec­ond – like a nor­mal sec­onds hand on most quartz watches. What’s re­spon­si­ble for that is the patented con­stant-force mech­a­nism that en­sures that the am­pli­tude of the bal­ance, and hence, time­keep­ing ac­cu­racy re­main con­sis­tent.
