The name says it all. No other mechanical watch epitomizes function, clientele and zeitgeist as well as the IWC Ingenieur. Developed in the 1950s for professionals who were increasingly exposed to magnetic fields – doctors, technicians, pilots, chemists, physicists, and, of course, engineers – the Ingenieur was IWC’s first fully anti-magnetic watch for civilian use. Several design icons and collectors’ favorites emerged from this technical milestone, such as the Ingenieur Ref. 666 from 1955, or Gérald Genta’s masterpiece, the Ingenieur SL Ref. 1832 from 1976. Find out more about one of IWC’s most iconic watch families in this series of #IWCEXPLAINED.


Gérald Genta was known for his innovative and forward-thinking design. However, behind every successful man is a woman, and in this case, it was Evelyne Genta. As his wife and business partner, she played an instrumental role in the success of their brand synonymous with high-end luxury timepieces.


In this episode, gain exclusive insight into the creation process behind the legendary Ingenieur SL, as Evelyne Genta shares her perspective and reflects on what made Genta a legend in the world of watchmaking.
