Although I really love my sport Rolexes and don t have anything against their bracelets, the clasp and the solid feel of the IWC bracelet is superior. However, my replica patek philippe Slim Quartz watches bracelets and clasps never failed on me.
So perhaps the flimsy feel does not represent the quality of the bracelet.The Ingenieur is a watch for the people that enjoy the 1970s stainless steel luxury watch that Gerald Genta designed. To put it in other words: you either love it or hate it. There is nothing much in between. The out spoken design is not loved by many, so don t expect a lot of ooohs replica patek philippe Twenty 4 watches and aaahs from people that are not into watches the same level you are. As Gerard Nijenbrinks put it in an older blog posting here, these are watches which you don t like at first glance; you have to grow into them . He was talking about the Vacheron Constantin 222/Overseas, PP Nautilus and replica rolex Daytona SS watches AP Royal Oak Jumbo, but I feel that this comment also goes for the IWC Ingenieur SL and the modern versions like mine.The movement inside the Ingenieur is IWC in house caliber 80110. A common misunderstanding seems to be that this movement is based on ETA/Valjoux 7750. It not. As Vorollo; put it replica cartier Allongee Ceinture watches on the IWC forum over at TimeZone: The original target was to get a highly robust, easy to service and maintain movement which plays in the same durability-field as e.g. the Rolex 3135 and the new JLC calibers 972/975/977 etc. Following this target, IWC decided to choose the proven 7750-base as a source of inspiration.
