IWC’s Ingenieur range of watches are high-spec, highly engineered (as you’d expect from the name) pieces that are perhaps the ultimate tool watch: rugged, tough, adventurous, modern. Here’s one, though, that’s invested with a more old-fashioned sensibility. It’s called the IWC Vintage Ingenieur 2012, and there are just 36 available in the UK, of a limited run of 500 in total. It’s priced at £5,950.
Vintage-in-style it may be, but it’s thoroughly modern too, with a first-rate, durable in-house movement and sizeable 42.5mm case. It’s exclusive to the Watch Gallery, which has outlets in Fulham, Westfield and the Selfridges Wonder Room.
