IWC Unveil Three New Timepieces at Goodwood

By Paul Joseph

Watchmakers IWC Schaffhausen unveiled three special edition timepieces at the 74th Goodwood Members’ Meeting last weekend.

Available in a limited edition of just 74 watches, the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood” is a tribute to the legendary motorsport event in the south of England.

Its most striking feature is its solid red gold case measuring 42mm, while other notable elements include the black dial with its two totalizers, small seconds and tachymeter scale running round the outer edge. A brown calfskin strap recalls the luxurious interior of classic motor cars.

The second and third watches released were the Ingenieur Chronograph Editions “Rudolf Caracciola” and “W 125”, which also bring the fascination of classic motorsport to the wearer’s wrist.

Dedicated to the racing driver who took three European Drivers’ Champion¬ship crowns in the 1930s, the eponymous “Rudolf Caracciola” watch features a stainless-steel case, rhodium-plated hands and slate-coloured dial. This sporty, yet elegant, timepiece also features a luxurious brown calfskin strap, and is limited to 750 pieces.

Finally the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “W 125” takes up the theme of the Mercedes-Benz W 125 Silver Arrow and features a titanium case, silver-plated dial and striking black hands.

The new IWC-manufactured 69370 calibre makes its debut appearance in all three models.

Founded in 1868, IWC have grown to become one of the world’s most famous luxury watch brands.
