IWC Schaffhausen pays tribute to six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, with the new “Lewis Hamilton” Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition. The British racing driver created the amazing timepiece together with IWC’s designers. Housed in a black ceramic case measuring 46.5mm x 15.9mm with an 18kt rose gold caseback, it has a Bordeaux-red dial with a crown, a sapphire display back, and it is water resistant to 60 meters.
“This partnership with IWC was incredibly exciting for me, and it’s been an honor to collaborate so closely with the watchmakers in Schaffhausen,” said Hamilton. “Together, we’ve designed a beautiful timepiece which combines two things I am really passionate about craftsmanship and design and I am so pleased with the result.”
Inside is the Swiss automatic movement IWC in-house caliber 52615 with 54 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 7 days (168 hours.) The novelty comes completed by a Bordeaux-red textile strap with a titanium buckle.
Priced at $52,000 the “Lewis Hamilton” Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition (ref. IW503002) is limited to only 100 watches.
