HIGH TECHNOLOGY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

The Ingenieur Automatic AMG Black Series Ceramic boasts the same outstanding features as an AMG Mercedes: exclusiveness and high performance, combined with everyday practicality, reliability and quality. As a tribute to its namesake, the designers of the Ingenieur Automatic AMG Black Series Ceramic, Reference 3225, have used the colour black to its best and most elegant advantage. Some of the surfaces have a high-gloss, piano lacquer-like finish, while some are silky matt. This intriguing interplay makes the timepiece, which is also available with a brown dial, a conspicuous eye-catcher. The case, which is water-resistant to 12 bar, the bezel, the case-back ring, the crown and its solid protective shoulders are all made of black zirconium oxide inspired by the high-performance ceramic disc brakes found in premium AMG vehicles. The striking screws in the bezel firmly secure the front glass, case and sapphire-glass back and are an unmistakable reference to the technical design cues of Gérald Genta’s legendary Ingenieur SL. The watch is equipped with the in-house 80110 calibre, which has an integrated shock-absorption system and is one of the most rugged movements made by IWC. A glance through the transparent sapphire-glass back reveals a precision, high-performance mechanism with a blackened rotor.

The 80000-Calibre Family

The Pellaton winding system is the cornerstone not only of the 50000-calibre family but also of the 80000-calibre family. In addition, it constitutes a point of departure for innovations in watchmaking technology. Continuous improvements, occasioned by the use of new materials, for instance, have led to a significant increase in its service life. The 85 calibre became part of the legend of ultra robust watches. One of the most rugged movements ever manufactured by IWC was the 80110 calibre, unveiled in 2005. It offers maximum protection against abrasion and other defects, is easily accessed for servicing and has been continuously improved in terms of reliability and shock-absorption. Tough and attractive by equal measure, the IWC-manufactured 80111 calibre is featured in References 3231, 3233 and 5461 of the IWC Vintage Collection, where it can be viewed through a transparent sapphire-glass back.
