In the past, the Ingenieur was notable for its self-winding movement, which featured the Pellaton winding system as well as its soft iron cage, which could withstand magnetic fields of up to 80,000 A/m. Said to be designed especially for scientists, researchers, and technicians who had to work in highly magnetic environments, it was to IWC Replica Watches what the Milgauss was to Rolex.
Case diameter is a relatively modest 42mm, which isn’t too large as far as modern watches go. Most sport chronographs tend to be around 44mm and above these days, so the slightly smaller size of these new Ingenieur Chronograph Special Cheap IWC Replica is bound to delight readers who love more moderately sized watches. Unfortunately, at slightly over 15mm, the case is still quite thick, a malady that afflicts many modern sport chronographs. On the bright side, this, along with the chunky crown and chronograph pushers, ensures that these special edition Ingenieur Chronograph watches have considerable wrist presence.

To distinguish the running seconds hand from the chronograph registers, the running seconds hand is a solid red arrow hand. The hands for the chronograph seconds hand as well as the 12-hour and 30-minute registers are red gold with red tips.

Very cool.
