IWC and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team Present the Official Team Watch

On the weekend of the Miami Grand Prix, the IWC and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team present the first official team watch, which is intended to be worn by the entire team.

Although this watch is intended for members of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, it has the particularity that it can also be purchased by the public exclusively online on iwc.com.

The watch based on the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41, is presented in a 41mm Grade 5 titanium case with a sandblasted finish, inside the black dial with the traditional layout of a 12 hours counter at 9 o’clock, a 30 minute counter at 12 o’clock, a day-date aperture at 3 o’clock and a small seconds at 6 o’clock. Green Arabic hour markers and hands are all filled with a generous layer of luminescent material.

Inside it operates the self-winding movement Caliber 69385 with a column wheel that can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back operating at 28,800 Vph and offering up to 46 hours of power reserve.

The chronograph is offered with two straps: one black embossed calfskin strap and one green rubber strap, both come with the EasX-CHANGE system that allows you to change straps quickly and without the need for any tools.

 

Our Opinion

The watch that features the team colours of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team is a real treat for the eyes of fans, but also a great choice for anyone looking for a sporty, non-boring chronograph.

The choice of date also proves to be quite timely, as the team has a record of eight consecutive constructor titles between 2104 and 2021.
