1955年に誕生した「インヂュニア」はパイロットウォッチ マークXI(11)を民生用へと改良したものでした。

自動巻きムーブメントを搭載し、軟鉄製のインナーケースを備えたことで非常に高い耐磁性と耐衝撃、防水性が大きな特徴でした。

この時計は1993年に登場し、2000年まで生産されたモデルでラグジュアリースポーツ感のあるデザインが際立ちます。

その理由はこの時計がジェラルド・ジェンタによってデザインされたものだからです。

ジェラルド・ジェンタはパテック フィリップのノーチラスやオーデマ・ピゲのロイヤルオーク、同じIWCのヨットクラブをデザインしたデザイナーでその後の時計デザインに非常に大きな影響を与えました。

現在、ヴィンテージのノーチラスやロイヤルオークは非常に高価で簡単には手が出ない代物となっていますが、このインヂュニアはまだそれほど注目されていないと感じます。

リューズガードのないシンプルなデザインながら、ケース、ラグ、ブレスレットのラインが流れるようで非常に洗練された印象を受けます。

光沢のあるブラックのダイアルとゴールドのインデックス、ペンシルハンドも高級感のある組み合わせです。

34mmというケースサイズはやや小振りですが、腕に付けた時にはもう少し大きく見えるかなと思います。

こういったデザインの時計でこのサイズ感のものは非常に少ないので、そういう意味では貴重なモデルですね。

ムーブメントはジャガールクルトのCal.889/2をベースとした機械が搭載されています。

このCal.889/2はジャガールクルトのマスターコントロール、オーデマ・ピゲのロイヤルオーク、ヴァシュロン・コンスタンタンのパトリモニーにも採用された評価の高いムーブメントです。

軟鉄製のインナーケースで守られているため磁気帯びの心配は無く、また日常使いでの衝撃も気にすること無くお使い頂けるかと思います。

IWCにてコンプリートサービス、ポリッシュ済みのため機械の調子、外装も素晴らしく綺麗な状態です。

【Description】

The Ingenieur was the civilian version of the Mark XI (11) pilot’s watch, created in 1955.
Equipped with a self-winding movement and a soft-iron inner case, the Ingenieur was characterized by high levels of protection against magnetic fields, shock and water resistance.
This watch was introduced in 1993 and was produced until 2000. The design of this watch stands out for its luxury sports to feel.
The reason for this is that the watch was designed by Gerald Genta.
Gerald Genta designed the Nautilus for Patek Philippe, the Royal Oak for Audemars Piguet and the Yacht Club for IWC, and was a major influence on watch design in the years to come.
Today, vintage Nautilus and Royal Oak watches are very expensive and hard to come by, but I feel the Ingenieur has not yet received the attention it deserves.
The lines of the case, lugs and bracelet are fluid and very refined, despite the simple design without a crown guard.
The glossy black dial, gold markers and pencil hands are also a luxurious combination.
At 34mm, the case size is a bit small, but I think it looks a bit larger on the wrist.
Because one of these size feelings is very few in the watch of such a design, it is a valuable model in that sense.
The movement is equipped with the machine based on Cal.889/2 of Jaeger-Le Coultre .
This movement is used for Master Control for Jaeger-LeCoultre and Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak and Vacheron Constantin for their Patrimony. A highly appreciated movement.
Protected by a soft-iron inner case, it can be used without worrying about the shocks of daily use.
It comes with an international warranty (with domestic purchase markings) and a chronometer certificate.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
