IWC IW322404 Ingenieur Automatic Black Dial Carbon Performance Ceramic
To mark its cooperation with the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, IWC presented a high-tech model with a carbon-fiber case and – this year for the first time ever – a mirror-polished ceramic bezel: the Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic. The middle section of the case which is firmly secured by five screws is manufactured using the same principle as the monocoque of a racing car: the fiber matting is soaked in epoxy resin and shaped to the desired form before being baked at a high temperature and pressure. The resin is then cured. The dial too is made of carbon fiber. It goes perfectly with the authentic FORMULA ONE look and gives the watch a profiled three-dimensional surface. Carbon is only one-fifth the weight of steel but does not have its resistance to impacts or scratching. For other parts of the case IWC designers also took inspiration from the materials used in motorsport’s leading discipline. Ceramic for the bezel screw heads crown and crown protection titanium for the screws and case-back ring and rubber for the strap with calfskin inlay. The strap is stitched with green nylon thread reminiscent of the stripes on the outer walls of tires used on wet circuits. Thanks to its integrated shock-absorption system the IWC-manufactured 80110-calibre movement is unaffected by extreme acceleration as well as sharp braking maneuvers and vibrations making it the perfect watch for racing drivers. Perfectly in keeping with the design of the rotor which is shaped like pistons.
