    IWC Ingenieur IW323902: that lust satiated

    There's just something about integrated bracelets I can't shake.
    Been lusting after a VC overseas 3 hander for a while now..but I just don't like arabic numerals nor that odd shaped date window
    this version of the ingenieur ticked many boxes when it got released..except for the price
    lo and behold a 2013 model with B&P came up at a steal


    beautiful balanced face check



    stick applied indices check



    black date disc to match a black dial check



    chapter ring, layered dial for texture contrast and depth check



    stepped case check...gotta say thats some good AR



    love the manly lugs, winds super smooth as a 2892 is supposed to






    kickass bracelet and clasp a must of course, comes with an interesting bracelet resizing system






    fits like a glove



    lume shot naturally



    damnit..do i still need that seals watch?
    ----------------------------------------------------
    few more pics of the bracelet












    case back



    pardon the smudge..the AR is real good












    enjoy

    Brilliant, isn't it ? Same as my AT: press the button - push the pin out. Slick

    I love this reference....especially the white dial with gold markers (ref: 323906) but can't stomach the 6k+ price.

    That's a sharp looking watch! Well done, Mikey. Another great addition to your already-spectacular collection!

    Looks great. What size is it?

    Were any of your other great watches sacrificed?

    Hey Mikey, can you tell more about the interesting bracelet resizing system? Love me a good bracelet and clasp, still, few I have encountered rival the IWC Mark XVII bracelet's exterior resize button or the Tudor Pelegos' spring loaded system. As a bracelet guy, I sometimes buy a watch for the bracelet as much as the watch itself -- got anymore photos of the clasp?

    added more pics for u dan
    i suppose i should have phrased it better...resizing of the bracelet..as opposed to micro-adjustments throughout the day
    see that little hole in the back of the bracelet..u press it in with the IWC tool (or any pointy thing really) and the pins slide out

    that being said..i understand the bracelet love
    this is one well machined clasp and buckle
    foldover clasp a bit long but well put together
    solid..no weird angling at the joints
    super comfy,not too light
    slightly sharp edges at the case integration part however
    i dig it
