“We’re delighted to unveil the first official team watch we’ve developed with IWC. It underscores the spirit of unity and the sense of belonging within our team and is a testament to the relationship we have built with IWC over the last decade,” said Toto Wolff, team principal and CEO of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team.

Fashioned from grade 5 titanium, the timepiece’s 41 mm case houses a black dial, complete with contrasting accents reminiscent of the Formula 1 team’s signature Petronas green colour scheme. The watch is powered by the Swiss luxury brand’s 69385 chronograph. The movement offers a power reserve of 46 hours. 

“Both fine watchmaking and racing are all about precision, craftsmanship and performance engineering. 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,” said Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

For those interested in this F1-inspired pilot’s chronograph, it’s worth noting that the ‘Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team’ model is exclusively available on IWC’s website. For more information, visit APEX’s sister website Haute Montres at hautemontres.co.za.
