Look at this dial 😍 IWC Ingenieur ref. 1832 …

…. from 1979. The calibre 8541 ES is the most accurate of all my vintage watches. 

Due to this ref. turning out to be (back then) a total commercial failure, production stopped after 543 pieces ….

Cheers, HSTE

That dial texture completely disappeared in the last photo! And I like the date disc's font and color! Hope to see this one in the flesh someday!

LOL! Don't get your hopes up too much.

Although the remake of the Da Vinci line nearly made me cough blood. Besides... (and I say this jokingly) their new CEO, Christoph Grainger-Herr, is so good looking (I mistook him for a movie star, after that I thought he was a famous politician) that hop... 

Now that is what I call a discovery!

It would be interesting to see if they do a reissue this or consign this to history (at least for the time being).
