IWC Schaffhausen has dedicated two extraordinary limited edition Pilot’s Watches to Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport. The special editions feature a matte black zirconium oxide ceramic case and a carbon fibre dial – both high-tech materials, used also in the premium class models such as the Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+. The striking black design with PETRONAS Emerald Green accents was inspired by the team colours of the six-time world champion and IWC partner.

The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport” is dedicated to the most successful F1TM team of the current era. IWC has been the “Official Engineering Partner” of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Formula One TM Team since 2013.The colours of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Formula One TM team inspire the smart, black design, with details in luminous “PETRONAS Emerald Green”. The watch is limited to only ten pieces and has a matte black zirconium oxide ceramic case and a black carbon fibre dial. The printing and luminous elements in “PETRONAS Emerald Green” add a colourful accent to the dial. This Big Pilot’s Watch is fitted with a perpetual calendar whose mechanical program will not require any correction until 2100. The IWC-manufactured 52615 calibre features an automatic Pellaton winding system that builds up a power reserve of seven days in two barrels.

The recipe for Formula One™ success doesn't just require cutting-edge technology and a truly exceptional driver in the cockpit – an extraordinary sense of team spirit is also essential. Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport has combined all these factors: The team from the UK has won the FIA Formula One™ World Constructors’ Championship for the sixth year running*. IWC Schaffhausen has been the team's "Official Engineering Partner" since 2013. The manufacturer has now honoured its partner with two limited special editions in the Pilot's Watches range.

The Pilot's Watch Chronograph Edition "Mercedes- AMG Petronas Motorsport" (Ref. IW389005) is limited to 50 watches, featuring a black ceramic case and a black carbon fibre dial. The small seconds at 6 o'clock and the seams on the black calf leather strap provide accents in the team colour of PETRONAS Emerald Green. The IWCmanufactured calibre 89361 displays the timed hours and minutes together on a subdial at 12 o'clock. With the flyback function, a simple press of the reset button can instantly start timing again. This function is also used on the race track to determine the fastest lap time. The two watches are now available in IWC Boutiques or from authorised retailers.
