Joining forces for the first time, IWC and The Faction Collection announces their limited-edition “Faction Studio 1 IWC Collab Ltd.” comprising 55 pairs of skis, and the option to purchase the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Edition in a white ceramic “Lake Tahoe” version.

For this collaboration, both companies unite their expertise in advanced performance materials, engineering as well as mutual values in sustainability and responsible production. The resulting skis, which are handmade in Austria at a renewable energy factory, are fitted with wooden cores made of sustainably sourced ash and poplar. Boasting the same specs used by Olympic gold-medalist Eileen Gu, the skis are engineered to withstand extreme forces, while its carbon-rubber binding provides stability during heavy landings. In terms of aesthetics, the skis come in a tone-on-tone white top sheet and are imprinted with glow-in-the-dark co-branding and “LAKE TAHOE” letterings.

For every pair of “Faction Studio 1 IWC Collab Ltd.” skis purchased,  an option for the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Top Gun Edition “Lake Tahoe” will be offered. As a highlighted model of IWC’s Top Gun collection, this special edition timepiece echoes the design of the skis with a white ceramic case, black dial, and hands doused in luminescent green, complete with the Top Gun logo engraved on its titanium caseback.

For more information on the collaboration, head to The Faction Collective’s official website for details.
