Deftly blending its long-time pilot’s watch experience with Mercedes-AMG’s precision performance in the world of sports cars, the pair continues its affiliation that began 17 years ago in 2004 with the launch of the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG. Just as AMG was born on the racetrack and is committed to driving performance, IWC is equally as committed to precision, performance and the engine inside its stealth watches.

Crafted in light-weight but incredible durable Grade 5 titanium, the new watch was unveiled today in a webcast by IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr, Mercedes-AMG CEO Philipp Schiemer and brand ambassador for both companies, race car driver Maro Engel.

The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG is the brand’s first 43mm watch. It features a carbon-fiber dial and titanium case.

The matte gray of the titanium was inspired by AMG’s Selenite Grey Magno paint finish. The dial is made of carbon fiber that is derived from AMG’s aero components. The fibers are converted into textile-like threads and then woven in the heat and pressure process – making them very light weight.

Part of IWC’s Pilot watch collection, the new AMG piece is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69385 caliber mechanical column-wheel chronograph movement with two function levels that enables stop time measurements of up to 12 hours. It is the brand’s first 43mm Pilot’s Watch Chronograph. This new size makes the watch very wearable and versatile.

The IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG watch was inspired by the car’s signature color and the carbon fiber elements .

In addition to chronograph functions, the automatic watch offers date and day display, a small hacking seconds hand and a screw-in crown for 6 bars of water resistance. The blend of pilot’s chronograph and racing stealth make this watch a sure-fire winner.

The sapphire case back of the watch sports the Mercedes-AMG logo and the timepiece is finished with a leather strap with contrast stitching and folding clasp. The watch, which comes with a six-year extension to the brand’s standard two-year warranty, is available for pre-order as of today at IWC.com and via IWC boutiques and authorized retail partners. It retails for $9,100.
