IWC Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar "Lewis Hamilton" Limited Edition

IWC BIG AVIATOR WATCH PERPETUAL CALENDAR "LEWIS HAMILTON" EDITION

Limited to 100 copies, the Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar "Lewis Hamilton" Edition Reference IW503002 combines a black zirconium oxide ceramic case and a burgundy dial. The golden notes are found on hands, the caseback, the rotor and the characteristic conical crown in 18K red gold. The imposing 46.5 mm diameter timepiece is mounted on a burgundy textile strap.

"When Lewis contacted us, he already had in mind the idea of ​​a burgundy and gold timepiece. Our starting point was the Big Pilot Watch perpetual calendar, one of the favorite models of the pilot - who is also a fine connoisseur of Haute Horlogerie. We opted for a black ceramic case embellished with golden details, as well as a dial and a burgundy textile bracelet. This association creates a style both luxurious and sober."

Christian Knoop, Creative Director of IWC Schaffhausen.

Precision of operation is guaranteed by the IWC 52615 Manufacture Caliber. Thanks to a Pellaton winding device with zirconium oxide ceramic components, the caliber stores a seven-day power reserve in its two barrels. The perpetual calendar - consisting of only 80 pieces - shows the date, the day of the week, the month, the year in four digits and the moon phase. The mechanical system automatically distinguishes the different durations of the months and adds an intercalary day every four years at the end of February. The double display of moon phases, valid for the next 577.5 years, simultaneously informs about the different lunar cycles in the northern and southern hemispheres.

Sextuple world champion of Formula 1 ™, Lewis Hamilton does not just be a reference in the flagship discipline of motorsport. He also handles with elegance in the world of fashion and lifestyle. Lewis Hamilton is also talking about him as a trend setter: the British has just added a new string to his bow by designing an exceptional timepiece in collaboration with IWC. "This partnership with IWC was really exciting for me, and it was an honor to work so closely with the watchmakers in Schaffhausen," says the pilot. "Together, we've designed a beautiful piece that combines two of the things that excite me the most - craftsmanship and design - and I'm really proud of the result."
