IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes-AMG have launched the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition ‘AMG’. This timepiece is the latest product to celebrate the partnership that has linked the Swiss luxury watchmaker and the German car manufacturer since 2004.
Crafted from automotive engineering materials, the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition ‘AMG’ is IWC’s first 43mm Pilot’s Watch Chronograph featuring the IWC-manufactured 69385 calibre. It is a robust and precise chronograph movement that enables stop time measurements of up to 12 hours.
The Grade 5 titanium finish gives the watch its 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.
To top it off, the black carbon dial provides the perfect contrast to the silver chronograph sub-dials, reminiscent of motorsport instruments.
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 Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition ‘AMG’ was unveiled at a webcast hosted by both companies’ CEOs. They were joined by Maro Engel, brand ambassador of both brands, who brought in the perspective of a professional racing driver.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition ‘AMG’ will be available for pre-order from 21 May online at IWC.com, through IWC boutiques and authorised retail partners. The timepiece is eligible for registration under the My IWC care program and thus benefits from a six-year extension to the standard two-year International Limited Warranty.
The webcast can be viewed on IWC’s official website.
