As usual, we’ll start our list with the very first reference, the perfect replica IWC Ingenieur 666. The famous Albert Pellaton, who developed the Pellaton Winding System, started working on the first Ingenieur in the early 1950s to create an everyday watch for engineers. As such, it needed to be a perfect daily wearer with a set of specs that could handle the challenges that engineers faced. It resulted in the first UK cheap copy IWC Ingenieur ref. 666, which debuted in 1955. The watch featured a 36.5mm case that was 13.2mm thick. It was based on the case that Swiss made fake IWC used for its famous Mark XI. The substantial thickness was mainly caused by the Faraday cage inside the case. This soft iron cage protected the movement against magnetic fields up to 80,000 amperes per meter. On top of that, the watch was water resistant to 100 meters.
The first model had two different references. The first was the no-date ref. 666A, and the other was the luxury fake IWC ref. 666AD with a date. The dateless version came with IWC caliber 852, and the version with a date was powered by caliber 8521. Both these movements operated at 19,800vph, had a 42-hour power reserve, and featured the Pellaton winding system. The high quality replica watches came with either a black or white silvered dial and a set of luminescent dauphine hands. Several dials from the first series (1955–1959) featured numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock. But there were versions without the numerals too, as well as ones with numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. The steel super clone watches online came with either a leather strap or a steel bracelet. The 18K gold version on a leather strap looks super classy.
An improved version of the ref. 666
The next iteration of the ref. 666 was introduced in 1959 and used an updated movement. The new versions had the same case as the first version, but inside, Swiss made replica IWC equipped them with the updated caliber 853 for the no-date version and caliber 8531 for the version with a date. This version of the Ingenieur stayed in production until 1967 when it was replaced by the new IWC Ingenieur ref. 866.
In those eight years, AAA quality fake IWC UK produced different variations of the ref. 666 with a black or silver dial. As was usual in that era, there were quite a few different executions of the dials, so you’ll see versions with pie-pan dials as well as ones with different markers. What is always present, however, is the great style of this classic 1:1 copy IWC Ingenieur.
