IWC Schaffhausen’s Ingenieur model was born in the ’50s, but it wasn’t until more recently that the watch moved closer to the centerstage in IWC’s lineup with the Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date Month, and now the watchmaker has released a limited grade 5 titanium edition — a material commonly used in aerospace applications or internal combustion engines.

Housed in a 45mm grade 5 titanium case is an IWC in-house caliber 89801, capable of recognizing the lengths of different months and can even register a leap year every four years, with a 68-hour power reserve. On top of this tech-packed caliber sits a flush grey dial with black and white hands and hour markers, all of which are luminescent in the dark. The watch is water resistant up to 120 meters, and comes with a black calfskin leather strap that compliments the darker tones of the watch. Turned over, the caseback features a display-glass for the caliber 89801 to be admired in all its glory.

The IWC Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date Month is now available over at IWC’s site for $37,400 USD. Those interested can contact the brand for more information on how to get your hands on one of them, but definitely act fast, as there are only 100 examples made.

And for more watches, TAG Heuer is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Monaco Grand Prix with a commemorative watch series.
