IWC Schaffhausen and its long-standing partner Mercedes-AMG have launched the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “AMG”.
The first IWC 43mm Pilot’s Watch Chronograph in titanium it is powered by the IWC manufactured 69385 calibre movement as well as the first Pilot‘s Watch Chronograph with a case made of extremely light and scratch-resistant titanium. The Grade 5 titanium finish offers a matte grey appearance, inspired by AMG’s signature Selenite Grey Magno paint finish. The dial features precisely woven carbon fibre, a material directly derived from AMG’s aero components. The black carbon dial provides the perfect contrast to the silver chronograph sub-dials, reminiscent of motorsport instruments.
The all-around performance watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured calibre 69385, a robust and precise chronograph movement that enables stop time measurements of up to 12 hours. The chronograph function is controlled by a column wheel, an intricate component with two functional levels. The Mercedes-AMG logo is emblazoned on the tinted sapphire crystal case back. The timepiece is fitted with a black embossed calf leather strap with contrast stitching and folding clasp.
The watch marks the latest in a long partnership between the Swiss watch manufacturer and the German car brand who share many values including the pursuit of technical perfection and uncompromising quality.
