IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes-AMG have launched the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “AMG”. The first IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph in titanium is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69385 calibre movement and features a carbon fibre dial. The timepiece was revealed during a webcast conversation with IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr, Mercedes-AMG CEO Philipp Schiemer and shared brand ambassador and racing driver Maro Engel.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “AMG” (Ref. IW377903) is IWC‘s first 43mm Pilot‘s Watch Chronograph that features the IWC-manufactured 69385 calibre, 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 gives the watch its matte grey appearance, inspired by AMG‘s signature Selenite Grey Magno paint finish. The dial has precisely woven carbon fibre, a material directly derived from AMG‘s aero components. The black carbon dial is juxtaposed with the silver chronograph sub-dials.
The watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured calibre 69385, a precise chronograph movement that allows to stop time measurements of up to 12 hours. The chronograph function is regulated by a column wheel, an intricate component with two functional levels. The Mercedes-AMG logo graces the tinted sapphire crystal case back. The timepiece comes on a black embossed calf leather strap with contrast stitching and folding clasp.
The new edition will be available for pre-order from 21st May online, through IWC boutiques and authorized retail partners. The timepiece is eligible for registration under the My IWC care program and thus benefits from a 6-year extension to the standard 2-year International Limited Warranty.
