My pick for this list is the 2005 luxury fake IWC Ingenieur ref. 3227. As some of you might know, I have a great love for Gerald Genta’s version of the IWC Ingenieur from the 1970s. Not too long ago, I wrote an article about Genta’s Ingenieur. It is part of our “Dear (Brand)” series about replica watches online we would like to see make a comeback in a modern version.
In the article, I explained how the ’70s Ingenieur reminded me of my father’s job as an engineer in the oil and gas industry when I was a young boy. I was fascinated by the huge rolls of graph paper that my father brought home whenever he had to check and adjust drawings for projects he was working on. It is the main reason that I will always have a special place in my heart for the Swiss made replica IWC Ingenieur that Genta created.
In the same article, I also explained that buying an original Ingenieur SL1832 “Jumbo” is a costly venture. So that will probably never happen for me. The best modern alternative to that watch has been the Ingenieur IW3227 that perfect fake IWC introduced in 2005. The watch was in production for only four short years before being replaced by the Ingenieur ref. 3229. That watch was the last of the Genta-inspired Ingenieurs (for now). The AAA replica IWC Ingenieur ref. 3227 from 2005 can be characterized as a chunky and heavy watch. It features a 42mm stainless steel case that is 14.5mm thick. On top of that, it features a heavy and sturdy bracelet. Ask anyone that owned this Ingenieur, and they will tell you it’s a serious chunk of steel.
It’s still on my wishlist
Inside the case, Swiss made replica IWC equipped the watch with its in-house-produced caliber 80110. The automatic movement operates at 28,800vph and has 28 jewels with a 44-hour power reserve. The watch shows hours, minutes, and seconds and has a date window at 3 o’clock. I love the relatively simple dial layout with its large numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock. Furthermore, there is not much text to clutter the dial design. The simple design creates the opportunity for the dial structure to stand out. I love how IWC fake for sale uk gave the dial a lot of texture, reminding me of the graph paper pattern on the original Genta Ingenieur that I love so much.
IWC replica Paypal produced some incredible variations in very small numbers in the short production period. The first is the same watch with a salmon dial with ref. 3227-11 in 100 pieces. A second is ref. 3227-05 with a gray dial, created especially for members of the IWC forum in a limited run of 100 pieces. The last one is the ref. 3227-12, also known as the Ken Noguchi Edition, created to contribute to the Sherpa Fund. The high quality fake IWC produced 200 pieces of that model with a great brown dial and orange markers. If you have patience, you might be able to find one of these three beauties. And if you are in the market for the regular black-dial version, you will also need to have some patience. As the Ingenieur was never a commercial success, they don’t show up in large numbers. If they do, expect to pay roughly between €4K and €6K.
