With a clear focus on technology and development, the Swiss watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen has been producing timepieces of lasting value since 1868. The company has gained an international reputation based on a passion for innovative solutions and technical ingenuity. One of the world’s leading brands in the luxury watch segment, IWC crafts masterpieces of haute horlogerie at their finest, combining supreme precision with exclusive design. This passion for performance and design and a commitment to engineering excellence down to the smallest detail has been shared with the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz, AMG, thus gave life in 2004 to a partnership that is nowadays one of the most long-standing between two brands from the watch and automotive industries. When this partnership was signed, their collaboration was based on a shared commitment to be able to push the boundaries of engineering and the most sophisticated technology. Since then they have consolidated their position at the top of their respective industrial sectors. One of the coolest creations that came alive was the reference IW372503, such as the lot here offered. Completely made in titanium, with a case of 42.5 mm, the watch is extremely light despite the generous dimensions. With a logic chronograph complication, the black dial has vertical counters for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration, big Arabic and baton numerals, inner seconds scale and outer tachymeter scale, all embellished with red details. On the case back is engraved the new version of the Mercedes AMG logo, with an apple tree and a stream, which they embody the Affalterbach and car engine components (cam, valves and springs). All is surrounded by another engraving that testify this special creation: By IWC exclusively for Mercedes-AMG.
