The long-standing and strong partnership between the IWC and Mercedes-AMG brands was launched in 2004, making it one of the longest in the watch industry…
To celebrate the seventeenth anniversary of their alliance, based on a shared interest in performance engineering, the two brands collaborated on the new Pilot’s Chronograph 43mm with a titanium body, which is the first in the famous Pilot’s Watch collection of the IWC brand.
“IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes-AMG share a passion for high performance and design, as well as a commitment to exceptional engineering, even when it comes to the smallest details. Over the past 17 years of our partnership, IWC and AMG have shared exceptional moments in the world of motorsport and beyond, and together we have created lasting memories for our many clients. Today, we are proud to present Mercedes-AMG as a permanent part of our Pilot’s Watch collection, starting with the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG edition,”explains Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.
The watch is created from materials from the world of automotive engineering, which are often used to construct high-performance Mercedes-AMG cars. The lightweight Grade 5 scratch-resistant titanium was used for the case, and it got a sleek matte gray look that was inspired by AMG Selenite Gray Mango paint.
On the other hand, the dial is created from carbon, which is obtained directly from AMG aero components. The silver sub-dials of the chronograph have a contrasting texture in relation to the carbon dial, and their combination reminds us of motosport instruments.
The watch is powered by IWC Caliber 69385, which offers a chronograph for hours, minutes, seconds, date and day display, as well as precise time adjustment. The Mercedes-AMG logo can be seen on the painted back of the sapphire crystal case, while the watch is also equipped with a leather strap with contrasting seams and a buckle, which fully follows the theme of the watch.
Finally, we can say that this special edition is available for purchase at a price of 9,100 dollars.
