IWC IW380702 3807 INGENIEUR CHRONOGRAPH Cal 69000 RUDOLF CARCACCIOLA 42MM SLATEIWC
For auction is an IWC IW380702 one of 750 limited LNIB Rudolf Caracciola Ingenieur Chronograph with brand new caliber 69000. There is a lot to unpack with this piece. At a very top level I see this watch as EXACTLY the kind of watch that needs to be made to continue to stoke the flame of modern watches and generate interest. While it definitely makes some nods to the past it has a lot of amazing new things. Firstly the caliber 69000 is beautiful and built like a tank. The case though is a jaw dropper: the feeling of fit finish and refinement is A+++ and the size is exactly perfect, 42mm feels just right and not too big. Then there is the slate dial which is just achingly beautiful.
