IWC Mens Replica released a collection called "Vintage" which was a bit of a misnomer. It was the beginning of the serious retro replica watch craze and IWC released a collection of stunning vintage themed versions of their contemporary collection. The kick was that each of the pieces actually did have a real history. So it was new replica watches based on original vintage replica watches, but not 1:1 design reproductions of those replica watches. These were cool and an IWC Vintage Ingenieur was part of the collection.
