IWC Drops Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team Chronograph

Ahead of the inaugural Miami Grand Prix this weekend, IWC has dropped its first official team watch for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team.

The sandblasted grade 5 titanium IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Edition “Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team” adopts the team’s signature Petronas green for its luminous Arabic numeral hour markers, indices, hands and date window against its black dial.

IWC Schaffhausen has been official engineering partner of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team since 2013. 

“Both fine watchmaking and racing are all about precision, craftsmanship and performance engineering,” says Christoph Grainger-Herr, IWC CEO. “But it’s the human factor – the passion the love and the dedication that make all the difference between good and great. This notion perfectly describes our long-standing partnership with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team and we are celebrating this partnership with the launch of the new team watch in Miami.”

Powered by an IWC 69385 calibre column wheel chronograph movement, the watch is supplied with both a calfskin and a Petronas green rubber quick change straps and is available exclusively online via IWC.
