The IWC Ingenieur brand made its debut back in 1954. In 1976, the Ingenieur brand underwent a significant transformation when it introduced a completely new design, crafted by the renowned watch designer, Gérald Genta.

This new design featured a distinctive cushion case, reminiscent of his highly acclaimed Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, which had gained widespread acclaim only a few years earlier.It also bore a resemblance to contemporaneous timepieces like the Vacheron Constantin 222 and the Omega Constellation, both of which were competitors in the market.

Specht And Sohne pay homage to Gérald Genta's genius with the Architekt. Available in 5 different dial colors the Architekt is the most accurate IWC Ingeniur homage on the market today.
