IWC Schaffhausen launches titanium and Ceratanium chronographs for Mercedes-AMG and its F1 team.
IWC Schaffhausen, in anticipation of the upcoming 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix, has unveiled two high-performance chronographs dedicated to its motorsport partners, Mercedes-AMG and the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team. The Pilot’s Watch Performance Chronograph 41, crafted from Ceratanium, reflects IWC’s watchmaking mastery in combining sophisticated chronograph engineering with advanced materials. Famous for its ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale, this fuel-driven timepiece allows drivers to measure average speeds efficiently, blending functionality with luxury design. Decorated with black dials featuring a glossy finish, recessed totalisers, and indices infused with Super-LumiNova, the watches are a statement of style but also visibility in low-light conditions. Housing the in-house 69385 calibre, these chronographs promise strength and precision, ready to withstand the pressures of 10 bar water resistance.
The titanium variant (Ref. IW388305/04) pioneers the use of this robust metal in watchmaking, echoing IWC’s innovative spirit since 1980. The Ceratanium model (Ref. IW388306/07) showcases IWC’s proprietary material that blends titanium’s durability with ceramic’s scratch resistance, culminating in a matte black finish. Both models offer strap options in black rubber or a matching metal bracelet. These chronographs extend the lineage of the official team watch, the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Edition “Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One™ Team”, worn by the team’s diverse talents. The new Pilot’s Watch Performance Chronograph 41 series elevates IWC’s motorsport connection, delivering a fusion of high-tech horology and racing spirit for enthusiasts and professionals alike.
