Driven by IWC Schaffhausen

The Swiss company presented three special watches, part of the Ingenieur family. The limited edition is dedicated to one of the most iconic events in the world of motorsports.

Driven by IWC Schaffhausen
During the 74th edition of Goodwood Members’ Meeting, the notorious competition for classic cars in the UK, IWC Schaffhausen offered its "driven" fans a wonderful surprise: the three chronographs were the event’s ultimate “cherry on top”.

Only 74 watches will be available

from the model “74th Members’ Meeting at Goodwood” – a tribute to the popular automobile event in the South of England. The other two chronographs, “Rudolf Caracciola” and “W 125”, are also released in a limited edition – only 750 items each. What’s specific about these three watches is that their debut was accompanied by the unveiling of the 69370 calibre, which consists of

more than 200 components

and has a 46-hour power reserve. Since 1955 the name Ingenieur has been a symbol of supreme engineering, immaculate presentation and technical innovation. The history of success continues today with these three watches. “The vintage tone of the new models gives them a distinct feel which echoes the golden age of the classic motor sport. We’re proud of the calibre because it’s a cutting edge innovation”, says Georges Kern, IWC Schaffhausen CEO.

The other timepiece from the limited edition is named after one of the most famous racing drivers from the past – Rudolf Caracciola. Stainless steel case, rhodium-plated hands and a slate-colored dial give this watch a technical profile while also maintaining the elegance that is so typical for IWC Schaffhausen.




IWC W 125

The Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “W 125”
This watch is inspired by Mercedes-Benz W 125 Silver Arrow – the car which in the 1930’s dominated the races. The timepieces from this model recreate the vision of the dashboard of the iconic car with titanium case, silver-coated dial and black calfskin strap.
