"For the man who expects the impossible from his watch" – this was the way the ads described the first IWC Ingenieur. This IWC is indeed a serious contender among the first proper anti-magnetic watches, the obvious competitors being the Rolex Milgauss and the Omega Railmaster. The IWC Ingenieur reference 666-AD could actually be considered technically superior to those three since it is the only one to have a date display, an additional opening increasing the complexity of fighting magnetism. In the end, the Ingenieur achieves to remain amagnetic until 80,000 A/m or roughly 1,000 gauss, like the Rolex. The Ingenieur is clearly functional, but it boasts a fairly dressy case, with a great 36.5 mm diameter.
