This year marks the 20th anniversary of IWC’s longtime partnership with Mercedes-AMG. To commemorate this milestone, the luxury Swiss watchmaker has crafted two new special editions of the Big Pilot’s Watch, both borrowing design cues from the iconic G-Class model.
The Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63 arrives in two different builds, one starring an 18-carat Armor Gold® case and crown, while the other is cased in ceramic matrix composite (CMC) that’s closely engineered with the help of the German Aerospace Center. Both versions are fitted with embossed dials in black, which feature a technical and relief-like structure that nods to the air intakes of Mercedes-AMG performance cars.
Housed inside each watch runs IWC’s very own 52010 caliber, a high-end, precise, and technically robust movement that offers a seven-day power reserve. The movement can be observed via the watch’s tinted sapphire crystal caseback, emblazoned with Mercedes-Benz’s hallmarked star logo at the center.
Measuring 46.2mm in case width, and 14.5mm in thickness, the duo of Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63 timekeepers are both accompanied by black rubber straps, fitted with microfiber inlays. To find out more about the watches’ availability and price points, head over to IWC’s official website.
