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