  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch from 1962 follows in the long line of high quality tool watches that began when IWC introduced the “Ingenieur” in 1954. Their first automatic timepiece, IWC sought to produce high quality watches that today have a cult following for their timeless design and quality movement. The present watch, sold original to the important Japanese wholesale Walter Shiro, is in wonderfully preserved condition, with unpolished case and originally clean dial. While small in dimension, the watch has a bold classic feel, and is a watch that all collectors should consider.
