What is the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG is IWC’s first 43mm Pilot’s Watch Chronograph and is built around an IWC-manufactured 69385 automatic movement with a 46 hour power-reserve that powers an intricate mechanism with two functional levels and a column wheel through a dial made of light yet durable woven carbon fibre acquired from AMG’s aero components.
In keeping with its prestigious pedigree, the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG features a case hewn from durable titanium with 6ATM of water resistance and the distinctive Mercedes-AMG logo emblazoned on the tinted sapphire crystal case back. Wrapping off this stylish example of engineering is a black embossed calf leather strap with contrast stitching and a folding clasp.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition AMG will be available for pre-orders from 21st May at IWC’s official online site, through their chain of IWC boutiques and authorised retail partners across the globe with a stated pre-order price of CHF 9,900 which is about RM45,618.
