When Hans Ernest Homberger took over IWC in 1955, one of the first offerings was the Ingenieur automatic, made with a special soft-iron inner body for protection against magnetic fields. It was equipped with the first bidirectional automatic movement, developed by Technical Director Albert Pellaton. The IWC Ingenieur Automatic Vintage Collection IW323301 is an homage to the first time/date Ingenieur of 1955.
