IWC Ingenieur Mission Earth Plastiki Edition

When it comes to maintaining status, luxury watches are the inseparable thing that add to your opulence. We have talked about many luxury watches, some are world’s most expensive watches and some super luxurious like Tachoscope chronograph and many more. But, the watch we are talking about today is surely luxurious, but has a different story.Schaffhausen, an official partner of the “Plastiki” expedition, has created a limited special edition watch: Ingenieur Automatic Mission Earth Edition “Plastiki”. This watch was produced to commemorating the victorious mission called “Plastiki” voyage that made environmental history.

The IWC Schaffhausen, amazing Swiss watchmakers, supported the mission that brought attention to the waste plastic choking the ocean. Hence, the company has created a limited edition 1,000 brilliant timepieces to pay honor to the feat of the British adventurer David de Rothschild and his crew.

The extremely strong watch is protected in a stainless steel case that is water resistant at the same time. The IWC watch is fitted with a soft-iron inner case to guard against magnetic fields up to 80,000 A/m. The time piece is exquisitely crafted for adventurous people and looks very masculine as made in blue rubber strap.

The company that is producing since 1868, has designed this watch with the back engraving, commemorates the “Plastiki” expedition, and depicts its sea route from San Francisco to Sydney. This partnership is renowned with the Ingenieur Automatic Mission Earth Edition “Plastiki”, Reference 3236, and is a true homage to an expedition of its kind.
