CLASSIC MEMBERS OF THE WATCH FAMILY

With the moderate dimensions of the case, the Ingenieur Automatic in stainless steel is well suited to a slimmer wrist. Despite its relatively modest height of 10 millimetres, the watch still comes with a soft-iron inner cage for maximum protection against magnetic fields and water-resistance to 12 bar. The Ingenieur Automatic models consistently reflect the design cues of this traditional watch family. The main reason for this is the equally elegant and functional design of a watch with its three hands. The conspicuous bores in the bezel were the brainchild of watch designer Gérald Genta. In the case of the legendary Ingenieur SL unveiled in 1976, he placed the five functional holes directly on the bezel. Originally, they served to hold it in position. Since then, the bores and/or screw heads together with the stylized bolt of lightning have become the hallmarks of the Ingenieur family. Like the solid metal hands, the rugged-looking crown protection underscores the impression that you are dealing here with a genuine strongbox. The classic Ingenieur is supplied with a silver-plated or black dial. The model with a silver-plated dial has rhodium- or rose-gold-plated hands and appliqués, while the rhodium-plated hands and appliqués attractively contrast with the black dial.
