The Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “Cancellara” Story
His career may now be over, but Swiss cyclist and two-time Olympic gold medallist Fabian Cancellara is still one of the most famous sports personalities in Switzerland. With the Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “Cancellara” IWC pays tribute to the exceptional achievements of the Bernese cyclist. This model is limited to just 77 watches – 7 is Fabian Cancellara’s favourite number – and is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69370-calibre movement with a bidirectional pawl-winding system and a 46-hour power reserve. The case is made from titanium, a particularly light and robust material. On the silver-plated dial with black painted subdials, red elements on the hands provide an additional colourful highlight. The black embossed strap is made from a type of rubber that is highly resistant to heat and the elements. A particularly special feature is the sapphire-glass back printed with a spoke design that is reminiscent of a racing bike.
