IWC Ingenieur Brothers – 3227 vs 3239
Both of these IWC Ingenieurs are from the ‘newer’ generation Ingenieurs. The 3227 is the one with the in house Pellaton movement from IWC, the cal. 80110. The 3239 came after the 3227 and lost the in house movement by IWC and came with a Sellita movement instead. Both feature the famous Gerald Genta design and a 40mm diameter case. The biggest differences bespite the movement are the thickness of the case (20mm for the 3227 and 10mm for the 3239) and the crownguards. Because of the thickness of the case the 3239 looks smaller on the wrist and is easier to wear.
The 3239 Ingenieur with the blue dial like this one is also the limited Laureus version of the 3239. The watch came in a limited amount of 1500 pieces and features the blue dial and an engraved drawing on the caseback of the watch.
