The Ingenieur Chronograph Sport is limited to 500 watches and is powered by the IWC-manufactured 89361-calibre movement. The 44-millimetre titanium case, black dial and black calfskin strap combine to create a sporty and elegant look. The small seconds hand at “6 o’clock”, shaped like a bolt of lightning, serves as a reminder that a soft-iron inner case protects the movement from the negative influence of magnetic fields. The upper totalizer makes it possible to read off stopped hours and minutes as simply as the time on a subdial. Stopped times up to 1 minute are measured by the central chronograph seconds hand. Used in combination with the tachymeter scale, it also shows the average speed achieved over a measured distance of 1,000 metres.

In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralized production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.
Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specializes in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titaniumaluminide and Ceratanium®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimize its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well as offering an excellent working environment ...
