New Watch Arrival: IWC Ingenieur Double Chronograph Titanium Watch

Apr 10, 2012

King Jewelers is excited to announce the arrival of what we feel to be one of the hottest and best new watches in the entire watch industry especially when considering the amazing price tag for this extraordinary timepiece. The Ingenieur Double Chronograph Titanium features the 79230 calibre and represents a double premiere from IWC. For the first time ever, the watch family can now claim to have a rattrapante – better known as a split-seconds hand. This hand is used to measure intermediate times, while the stopwatch hand continues to run: simply pushing the button at “10 o’clock” causes the two hands to start running synchronously again, meaning the user can alternate between intermediate and aggregate times as often as desired. The second new feature is the case of the double chronograph, which is made of titanium, a material already successfully used in Ingenieur watches. Titanium is light, pleasant to wear, extremely hard-wearing and cannot cause skin allergies. Ingenieur family connoisseurs will immediately spot the screw heads in the bezel’s five bores. Coated in diamond-like carbon (DLC), they are a fine aesthetic match for the push-buttons, painstakingly coated black rubber, and the crown protection.

The IWC Ingenieur Double Chronograph Titanium is the first member of the Ingenieur family to feature a split-seconds hand in which the user can record as many intermediate and lap times as he chooses
while the chronograph seconds hand continues to run. The titanium case is light, unusually tough and extremely skin-friendly, not to mention extremely cool looking and a perfect timepiece fit for only a true watch aficionado.
