Split-seconds hand is 'eye-catching'

First published: 08-08-2011

The launch of a new watch by the International Watch Company (IWC) has highlighted its split-seconds hand as 'eye-catching'.

IWC's new release, the Ingenieur Double Chronograph Titanium, used its trusted 79230 calibre in a 45 mm case combined with its debut of the rattrapante, split-seconds hand, to create a new model for men.

Its titanium case is also finished in a silky-matt satin, while the bezel is fastened with five screw heads coated in diamond-like carbon.

For night time usage, the timepiece also comes with luminescent hands which are only apparent in the dark.

At a weight of just 130 grams and a water resistance of 12 bar, the watch is suitable for adventurous types.

The double chronograph allows measurement of two short periods of time by using two central stopwatch hands that start by the push of one button.

It also features an anti-reflective sapphire glass and a 44-hour power reserve.

Perfect for energy-fuelled sports fans.
