 The Ingenieur brand first appeared in [[1954]] and has been applied to watches designed for scientific, technical, and exploration usage. Most Ingenieur watches feature [[water resistance]], [[anti-magnetic]] capabilities, and precise timing. In this way, the Ingenieur is similar to the [[Rolex Milgauss]] and [[Rolex Explorer]]. From the beginning, IWC Ingenieur watches have features a logo with "INGENIEUR" in capital letters above a lightning bolt from top left to bottom right. The Ingenieur brand first appeared in [[1954]] and has been applied to watches designed for scientific, technical, and exploration usage.

-The first watch to bear the Ingenieur label was the [[IWC Ingenieur 666|Ref. 666A and 666AD]]. Designed by [[Albert Pellaton]], they featured [[IWC 852|Cal. 852 and 8521]], respectively, contained inside a soft iron cage to protect from magnetic fields up to 80,000 Amperes per meter. This was launched at the same year as its historic rival, [[Rolex Milgauss]]. IWC repurposed the case of the [[IWC Mark XI|Mark XI]] pilots watch but were equipped with [[dauphine hands]] and an elegant dial with numerals at 12 and 6 and pointed bar markers for the other hours. Ref. 666AD added a [[date window]] at 3 00. The original Ingenieur was also water resistant to a depth of 100 Meters. A similar [[IWC Ingenieur 766|Ref. 766A and 766AD]] was also produced.+The first watch to bear the Ingenieur label was the [[IWC Ingenieur 666|Ref. 666A and 666AD]].

 A new movement, [[IWC 853|Cal. 853/8531]], was used starting in [[1959]]. The reference numbers, 666 and 766, remained the same, with a few new references added in later years. This line had many variations over the years, all with a similar 36.6 mm case, but they would be phased out in [[1967]]. During this period, IWC also changed reference numbering system, adding a prefix and suffix to denote case material and movement. A new movement, [[IWC 853|Cal. 853/8531]], was used starting in [[1959]].
