3227-01 and 3227-12....3228-01

Jan 28, 2021,17:47 PM

There seems no love for 3227....many have owned and sold off.
It’s as heavy as a Rolex PT but cost lesser....
It has a lot of size on the wrist....it’s the weight that puts collector off?
Or the boring edges?

In-house movements
3227-12 (1 of 200.)

I love the 3228 for it’s size and white dial...rare too. Also Milgauss like gloss.

It's a nice watch...but I thought there was a controversy about in house movement.

there movement is somewhat similar to the 7750 although IWC did do a lot of changes. IWC claimed it was entirely in house but issue remains and I believe that may have contributed to the lack of popularity. At the same time the other big watches were popu... 

The 3227 was on my radar when it launched. But way too big and heavy for my puny wrist

The 3228 wears better but it has display caseback, sacrifices anti magnetic cover, so it is not really an Ingenieur. IMO the best ingenieur is still the original SL 1832 aka Jumbo, then Ingenieur SL of 80's and 90's, followed by the 3239 (40 mm). They fea... 

Did a search on chrono24

And it seems like the 1832 prices are hopping on the Genta design bandwagon in terms of prices

I red your sad story about the IWC Inginieur

Why do we not love this watch? Some replied it is bulky and heavy. The model name: Everybody want to be an ingenieur or secret agent.... That is not why the watch selling bad. For me, an ingenieur is an unknown watch. It is not ugly. So what are more reas... 

In my opinion all those

are attractive. Nothing wrong with them.

I owned a 3227 for years and loved it but...

It was head heavy and I could never get the proper fit with the bracelet (even with a half link), so the watch tended to flop around when I wore it and it was not that comfortable. I bought the IWC Kevlar strap to try and fix the issue but I much preferre...
