The racetrack has more to offer: Engineers carbon fiber high-performance automatic watch ceramic version
 As the official engineering partner of the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Formula One ™ Team, IWC continues to draw inspiration from motorsport to create new watches. The Engineer Carbon Fiber High-Performance Automatic Ceramic Edition (Model: IW322404) is a sports watch with excellent performance. The case is made of innovative materials, which is inspired by the material library of Formula One racing.
 As we all know, carbon fiber is the ideal material for motorsport. It is twice as strong as steel and weighs only one-fifth that of steel. IWC makes full use of the advantages of this special material and applies it to the production of watches. The engineer’s carbon fiber high-performance automatic watch ceramic version is such a high-tech weapon with a carbon fiber case. At the same time, the high-gloss ceramic bezel is another new feature of this model. Its case is fixed by 5 screws, and the manufacturing principle of the middle part is exactly the same as the core parts of the car. In addition to the case, the dial is also made of carbon fiber, showing the sporty temperament of an orthodox racing car, and adding an extremely rich three-dimensional sense to the surface of the watch. IWC designers also take inspiration from other materials used in this top-tier motorsport, such as ceramic bezels, screw caps, crowns and crown protectors, titanium screws and case washers , And a rubber strap made of calfskin with rubber. The straps are embellished with green stitching, reminiscent of the green edging of special tires on a racing track in the rain. IWC’s 80110 self-made movement is one of the brand’s most rugged movements and has successfully passed layers of tests. The movement is equipped with an integrated shock absorption system, which can resist the shock and severe vibration caused by extreme acceleration or emergency braking, and is the favorite choice of racers.

Home from Four Seas: Engineer’s Dual Time Zone Watch
 The engineer’s dual time zone watch (models: IW324402 / IW324404) marches into the world of motorsport with its classic shape and unrivalled ruggedness. The 43 mm case diameter is slightly understated compared to other larger models in the Engineers series. The stainless steel case shows its strength. The biggest highlight of the engineer’s dual time zone watch is that it can display the time in any second time zone according to the wearer’s choice, which is convenient for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team and all global travelers to grasp the time in frequent time zone shuttles. The hour and minute hands display the current local time on the dial, with a silver-plated dial or a black dial to choose from. The crown can be used to adjust the time forward and backward in hours, even if it crosses the international date change line. When the red-pointed second hand is running at full speed on the dial, the second time of the synchronized time, such as home time, is displayed on the 24-hour outer circle by means of another arrow-shaped pointer. In order to facilitate the distinction between day and night, the color of the upper half of the ring from 18:00 to 6 a.m. is slightly darker than that of the lower half. The eye-catching holes in the bezel are inspired by the design ideas of watch designer GÉRALD GENTA. In 1976, he designed the legendary engineer SL watch (model: 1832) for IWC to create 5 functional drill holes directly on the bezel. Initially these holes were only used to fix the bezel, and soon they and the overall case design quickly became the signature image of the engineer’s watch family.
