IWC-CEO Georges Kern showing me the Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillon

Some of might have recognized that yesterday I did not show you all the new IWCs. Two were missing: the IWC Ingenieur Constant-Force Tourbillon and the red edition of the IWC Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance. They were simply not available, because been shown to the retail at that time.

This morning I met IWC-CEO Georges Kern and in his office  for a chat and I finally could take pictures of the constant-force tourbillon and the red edition of the carbon watch with red indexes and red stitching

    It’s very sad for me to see a brand like IWC making watches such as the ones that are posted here. In my opinion the new collection is a mixed between Hublot, Bell & Ross in the pilot line, Concord and Audemars. Piguet.
    I am quite disappointed about what Richemont is doing here, they put a CEO who used to sell food and doesn’t have a clue about watches to run a a company with a lot of history, which makes me think that the only thing they care is the numbers.
    Why buy a $7000 US watch with a slightly modified $150 US movement? People always reply that ETA and Sellita are very reliable movements but so is a toyota engine!
    Would you buy a $60K mercedes with a toyota engine?
    I hope IWC reconsider and they continue to make nice watches!

    1. Rodrigo, the new IWC watches presented at SIHH are in line with the Ingenieur collection of the brand located in Schaffhausen. The watches still all have the DNA of the Ingeniuer, but their actual design is modern, it is reflecting the year 2013. I would not be so negative about IWC and its CEO. Since Georges Kern took over he developed the brand to an international player and he invested a lot of money in the in-house movement and case production. Today IWC offers already more than 65 percent of in-house movements and the quota is rapidly growing. It is more then clear where IWC is heading to and you slowly will have to accept that this is opposite direction of the “good old times” when IWC only was a local player with niche products in its portfolio …
