Haute wrist candy for car racers

It’s a limited edition of just 1000 pieces! In case you want it in your wardrobe, here’s what makes it one of the must-haves.

The IWC Schaffhausen Ingenieur Automatic Carbon Performance Ceramic is a magnificent addition to its Ingenieur family as it will be to your own collection of watches. In its role as Official Engineering Partner of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM Team, the Swiss watch manufacturer  created  this new works of haute horlogerie. Thus it has features and materials typically found in motor racing.

The watch uses carbon fibre which is ideally suited for use in motor racing. IWC Schaffhausen has used this material for its watch cases as it is twice as strong as steel but only a fifth of the weight. The middle section of the case, which is held together by five screws, is manufactured according to the same principle as the core features of a racing car. For other parts of the case too, IWC designers have sought inspiration from the materials used in motor racing- Ceramic for the bezel, screw heads, crown and crown protection, titanium for the screws and case-back ring, and rubber for the underside of the strap with its calf skin inlay.

  

The strap is sewn with green thread as an allusion to the stripes on the outer walls of the tyres fitted to the cars for racing in wet conditions. The IWC-manufactured 80110-calibre movement is one of the company’s most rugged and thoroughly tested movements and, thanks to its integrated shock-absorption system, is unaffected by extreme acceleration or sharp braking manoeuvres and vibrations, making it the ideal watch for racing drivers. Perfectly in keeping with the design is the rotor, which is shaped like the pistons found in a FORMULA ONE racing car.

Price: INR 14,55,000
