IWC is auctioning off the last of a sold-out Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar limited edition run for Lewis Hamilton’s Ignite charity.

As well as donating the proceeds from the week-long online auction at Bonhams, IWC has committed to an annual donation of 50,000 Euros (approximately $52,400 USD).

Funds Will Go Towards Ignite Charity Founded By Sir Lewis Hamilton To Support Diversity In Motorsport

The watch in question is No. 50 of 100 Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition Toto Wolff x Mercedes- AMG Petronas Formula One Team, which “recognises the extraordinary career and achievements thus far of Toto Wolff, Team Principle & CEO” of the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, a longstanding partner of IWC.

Auction house Bonhams is managing the month-long sale, which is now live, waiting for a £40,000 GBP starting bid (approximately $48,700 USD).

Ignite is a joint charitable initiative run by Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 team and Sir Lewis Hamilton, which supports “diversity and inclusion” in motorsport.

The watch features a Ceratanium case and crown with a tinted glass dial, while printing and luminous elements in PETRONAS green. Bidding on No. 50 closes at Bonhams on July 7th.

Elsewhere in watches, Girard-Perregaux reveals pink gold Laureato with onyx dial.
