A few days ago, IWC Schaffhausen released the Ingenieur Chronograph “Tribute to Nico Rosberg” to honour the world champion 2016 Formula One driver. There are only 23 pieces in the collection, to celebrate the 23 wins that Rosberg has under his belt so far.
A Tribute To Racing Excellence
Nico Rosberg designed the special edition of the watch himself, and nowhere is his mark clearer than on the sapphire glass back. Quite literally, as the back is printed with the emblematic “NICO” lettering.
The watch case is made of 18-carat red gold. The warm colour gives the whole thing a distinguished, burnished air. Inside the case, the slate-coloured dial perfectly contrasts the warm red gold. Finally, the gold-plated hands round off the classic, yet sporty look.
An IWC manufactured 69375 calibre, a robust chronograph movement with a column-wheel control device, drives the watch. The bidirectional pawl-winding system generates a power reserve of 46 hours. Finally, the strap is of grey calfskin, a subtle shade that elevates the face of the watch.
The Watch And The Man Himself
If pictures aren’t enough for you, you can always check out Nico’s vlog of him attending the watch’s debut at an IWC event, set right here in Singapore!
