The Ingenieur Family To Collections
The Ingenieur watch family’s success story, incidentally, began back in the 1950s. An increasing number of technical appliances generated magnetic fields that adversely affected the accuracy of wristwatches. Engineers, in particular, often worked in areas subject to magnetic fields. By this time, IWC had perfected protection against magnetic fields to the point that creating a new watch class especially for this profession seemed like a good idea. And so, the Ingenieur was born.
