All this was to say that things are going back to basics in the same way as we discovered with the old-new Da Vinci: the Fake IWC Ingenieur Automatic 40mm, closest to the original among the four new models, offers a good conservative size with an “IWC caliber 35111” beating inside.It runs at 4Hz and offers 42 hours of power reserve, ensuring that it won’t be a top pick for those looking for a more modern movement in this price segment.
The IWC Replica Watches UK Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is a titanium-clad, 44mm-wide alternative to the aforementioned triple-register sporting a more complex IWC Caliber 89361. It offers a more impressive 68 hours of power reserve, a more advanced automatic winding system and the more sophisticated display of chronograph hours and minutes on one sub-dial at 12 o’clock.
The heavy-hitter in the new-for-2017 collection is the IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month, a 45mm-wide and 17.5mm-thick piece in 18k red gold, based on what is a truly impressive movement, the IWC Fake Watches Caliber 89800. Built on the same 89000 foundations as the Chronograph Sport, this piece further adds a perpetual calendar to the mix, spiced up with digital indications for the month and date at 2 and 10 o’clock, respectively. A neat design tweak is how the apertures are framed by what appear to be sub-dials – although the functionless tracks on their periphery might come across as a design no-no in the eyes of watch design purists.
