IWC HONOURS WORLD CHAMPION FORMULA ONE DRIVER NICO ROSBERG WITH SPECIAL EDITION
Schaffhausen, 24 November 2017 – IWC Schaffhausen has released the Ingenieur Chronograph “Tribute to Nico Rosberg” to honour the world champion 2016 FORMULA ONE driver Nico Rosberg. The IWC-manufactured chronograph with an 18-carat red gold case was designed by Rosberg in collaboration with Christian Knoop, Creative Director at IWC Schaffhausen. A special feature of this watch is its see-through sapphire-glass back, which is printed with the “NICO” lettering from Rosberg’s helmet.
Limited to 23 watches, the Ingenieur Chronograph “Tribute to Nico Rosberg” (Ref. IW380805) recalls Rosberg’s 23 Grand Prix wins. The case is made of 18-carat red gold, the dial is slate-coloured and the hands are gold-plated. The watch is driven by an IWC-manufactured 69375 calibre, a robust chronograph movement with a column-wheel control device. The bidirectional pawl-winding system generates a power reserve of 46 hours. An elegant sports watch, the Ingenieur is fitted with a grey calfskin strap. As a real highlight, the see-through sapphire-glass back is printed with the emblematic “NICO” lettering.
The Ingenieur Chronograph “Tribute to Nico Rosberg” will be available in IWC boutiques and from authorized IWC retailers from December 2017.
