Swiss luxury watchmaker and German high-performance sports car brand Mercedes-AMG have been collaborating for years. In honor of their long-term partnership, they released a special model.

The partners conceived to release a whole series of watches, while the very first of them debuted – IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph AMG edition. The watch case is made of a special titanium alloy, which means it is not afraid of scratches and dents.

And the color of this metal is reminiscent of the signature shade of the AMG division – it’s matte gray Selenite Gray Magno. Carbon was chosen for the dial. Modern automakers love this metal very much – it is light, but strong at the same time. The carbon dial is black. This shade is in perfect harmony with the silver chronograph dials.

Moreover, the latter are designed in the spirit of the pointers on the dashboard of a sports car. This stylish chronograph counting hours, minutes and seconds also receives a mechanical movement, a special glass that resists pressure fluctuations, a tinted sapphire glass case back with the Mercedes-AMG logo and a black embossed calfskin strap with white stitching.

Recall that Mercedes-AMG and the Swiss watch company began to cooperate back in 2004.

Their latest collaboration will mark the start of a new Pilot’s Watch series dedicated to Mercedes-AMG. The watch is already available for pre-order. They are estimated at almost 12,000 dollars (883 thousand rubles).

Previously, AutoTimesNews revealed that the new 2021 BMW M4 Coupe receives stylish wheels from Forgestar. The wheels receive the original double-spoke pattern and austere black color.
