IWC: ngenieur Automatic/1955
50 years of the Ingenieur - the never-ending story of this legendary watch is now celebrating its successful continuation with an entire product range. Just as the professional IWC pilot's watches have the Air as their element, and the Aquatimer family is committed to serve under the Water, so the Ingenieur takes the Earth as its symbol.
Its name has been a watchword ever since it made its first appearance on the market in 1955. The hour of its birth reflects the awakening phase of an age when engineers - hungry for modernity and advancement - sought to revolutionize the world in all technical disciplines. The lightening symbol on the dial of the Ingenieur - the sign for electricity - has represented the synthesis of solidity, robustness and the pursuit of progress for 50 years.
