IWC Ref. 3506 Ingenieur SL Automatic - 1980s


When you think of watches by IWC, you'll probably conjure images of their Aquatimer divers or Big Pilot aviators. But their Ingenieur is without a question an icon of wristwatch design. With its characteristic integrated bracelet and sharp, angular case design, the Ingenieur is indisputably a sought after timepiece. This black dial Ref. 3506 is one example of the IWC Ingenieur, which has it all. Case and bracelet are made out of stainless steel and appeare to be unpolished. To keep it simple: The watch is in amazing condition. The dial has no signs of use featuring a stunning black textured finish with a date set. The crown is original with the appropriate IWC-logo. The movement is an automatic movement, running strong and keeping time well. The IWC 3506 was produced from 1985 to 89. Quickly it became one of the most desirable und successful watches by IWC. This IWC Ingenieur deserves the designation as a WRISTCLASSIC like no other. It convinces with perfect proportions, timeless styling and great reference to the yacht-sport.

The International Watch Company has been founded by Ariosto Jones, an American watchmaker and engineer in 1868. In 1901 IWC had already 190 employees. From day one IWC built high quality watches. The most iconic watch by IWC is the Grande Complication. It contains 659 mechanic pieces, among them 71 rubies. It has 17 functions and 12 patents, a perpetual calendar for the next 500 years and the perpetual moon-phase display. Other collectable watches are the IWC Portuguese, IWC Da Vinci, IWC Pilot's Watches, IWC Portofino, IWC Aquatimer and IWC Ingenieur. After two bankruptcies, IWC came back on the road of success.
