Return To Iwc 2013 Watch Appreciation

This new design line in the engineer’s watch family is distinctive and easy to identify: the bezel of this sporty timepiece is equipped with 5 screws, replacing the traditional drilling, The glass bezel and case are connected together. The case of the engineer’s chasing hands (IW386501, IW386503) and the engineer’s dual time zone watch (model IW326403) are made of titanium.

 As early as the early 1980s, IWC introduced titanium and other materials into the watchmaking industry. Titanium is favored mainly for its excellent performance. It weighs only half of stainless steel, but it is resistant to corrosion, magnetic, and has the characteristics of excellent skin tolerance. As a result, both watches have titanium crowns, crown guards and buttons, and are coated with a complex rubber coating.

Double Championship Qualification

记录 In F1 ™ Formula 1, it is very important to record the lap time for technical parameters and race progress. The fastest lap in qualifying even determines the starting position in the race. So, to celebrate the collaboration between Schaffhausen IWC and the Mercedes-AMG F1 ™ team (MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One ™ Team), the latest engineer series is absolutely indispensable. . The split-second time within one minute can be recorded with the second hand, and the blue and white chronograph hands continue to run at the same time. Press the button again at the ’10 o’clock’ position, and the second hand and the chronograph hand are synchronized again. This allows lap times to be recorded repeatedly. At the 12 o’clock position, the hour and minute hands jump around the 30-minute dial. Its triangular tip runs for two full weeks in one hour.

The hour hand in the ‘6 o’clock’ position accumulator continuously moves the time along the half-hour scale. The slightly sunk accumulator, which resembles a tachometer, underscores the precision of this watch. Among the many displays, in addition to the date, the day of the week is also essential. The engineer’s chronograph titanium watch is water-resistant to 12 bar, with a silver-plated dial or a black dial with a black rubber strap.

Take control of time

Melbourne, Barcelona, ​​Monza, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, São Paulo, Shanghai-the international Formula 1 ™ Formula 1 race is spread all over the world, and the F1 ™ team travels from 20 to 20 tracks every year. Therefore, it is ideal for drivers and team members to see the time in different time zones at a glance.

The new engineer’s dual time zone titanium watch is equipped with an optional second time display, which is convenient for grasping the time. The dial shows the current time at the location and can be adjusted forward or backward in hours, even if it crosses the international date change line. When the second hand with a white tip runs on the dial, the second time moves synchronously on the 24-hour outer circle with the aid of a white arrow. In this way, the hometown can be seen at any time. In order to better distinguish between day and night, the upper half, that is, from 18:00 to 6:00, is slightly darker than the lower half. An engineer’s dual time zone titanium watch with a black rubber strap.

The case of the Engineer’s Chasing Chronograph Titanium Watch and the Engineer’s Dual Time Zone Titanium Watch is inspired by F1 ™ Formula One materials. Technically, these two watches can also match this top event: the chronograph chronograph is the best choice for calculating the lap time, while the dual time zone watch facilitates the reliable control of time during frequent time zone changes during the season .
