1991 IWC Ingenieur Chrono Alarm - FULL SET - NEW OLD STOCK - Ref. 3805
A very elegant and sporty iconic wristwatch
WHY IS THIS WATCH SPECIAL
The present IWC is in my opinion the most elegant and virile sport watch ever made. This particular example is new, with its original box and blank guarantee. The «Ingenieur Chrono Alarm» another variation of the Genta theme was launched in 1991, this time adding chronograph as well as alarm complications to the Ingenieur line. Thanks to its diameter of 34 mm and its military looking main dial, the «Chrono Alarm» gave a more adult impression than the prior 'Chronograph' (Ref. 3734) .Like its sibling, «Ingenieur Chronograph», the «Chrono Alarm» is equipped with a meca-quartz movement belonging to the calibre 630, the smallest movement of its category ever manufactured. These hybrid calibres were produced by Jaeger-Le Coultre for IWC and combined quarz-controlled stepping motors with a mechanically driven chronograph (more than 250 moving parts). In the case of the Chrono Alarm's calibre 633, it was furthermore enhanced with an alarm function. This horology marvel is among others water resistant to 3 atm and amagnetic to 4,800 A/m (specificity of the 'Ingenieur' line).
These days, the «Ingenieur Chrono Alarm» belongs to the most popular models of the Ingenieur line and regarded as a collector's item. The main reason is of course its calibre 633 which belongs the technical marvels among the quartz movements used by IWC.
With a clear focus on technology and development, the Swiss watch manufacturer "International Watch Company" (IWC Schaffhausen) has been producing timepieces of lasting value since 1868. The company has gained international reputation based on a passion for innovative solutions and technical ingenuity.
