A masterpiece watch: the definite highlight of the day was the launch of the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “Cancellara” (Ref. IW380704), which is limited to 77 watches - number 7 is reserved for Fabian himself, of course. As a sports watch, it combines a robust, satin-finished titanium case (42 mm in diameter), offering impeccable visibility in terms of the timing functions on both hands and dials. The silver-plated dial carries a tachymeter scale, and the subdials are finished in contrasting galvanized black. The hands and timing functions also have red-coloured flashes, which add a true sporty touch. The chronograph is driven by the IWC-manufactured 69370-calibre movement, comprising the high-performance bi-directional pawl-winding system. Finally, the watch’s cycling theme is accentuated through the unique feature of a wheel-spoke design on the sapphire-glass case back.
Now, where will my bike take me next? I hope to be able to share more details on my next cycling adventure with you soon.
