Bringing back a classic Ingenieur - This caught my attention
aBlogtoWatch : The other day my friend and colleague Zach Piña
posted one heck of an all-gold Ingenieur SL on his personal account and
we started chatting about it. He wanted me to ask you what, if any,
plans you have for the IWC Ingenieur’s foreseeable future.
Christian Knoop : Yeah, that’s a great-looking piece. The thing is that
this look is so popular and so visible at the moment. For sure, we have
thought about bringing the Ingenieur back, but this maybe is not the
ideal point in time. This will appear like a kind of AP-copy to most of
the people who are not that familiar with the history, and that even
includes some of our customers who have been fans and connoisseurs of
our other designs. We are watching this and we think about a historic
Ingenieur a lot, but I don’t think it’s the right time to come up with
something like this.
He says the look is popular now and yet it's not the right time to come up with something like this? What gives?
