With the launch of the Ingenieur Automatic Edition “AMG GT” in solid boron carbide, IWC Schaffhausen has set up another milestone in watchmaking history. It alludes to the partnership with Mercedes-AMG with a case made of several parts in pure boron carbide: the first time this material has been used in the watch industry. This high-performance ceramic, which is manufactured in five time-consuming stages, is one of the hardest and most scratch-proof materials available. IWC’s traditional prowess in precision technology is embodied by the in-house 80110 calibre, which is one of the most rugged movements from IWC and features an integrated shock-absorber. The stylish yellow elements reference the exclusive “Solarbeam” tone used by AMG. The eye-catching screws in the bezel and crown are made of black zirconium oxide. A glance through the transparent sapphire glass back cover reveals a precision movement with a blackened rotor. The new watch is secured to the wrist with a very rugged, skin-friendly rubber strap. With the black Dinamica® inlay, which is set off with yellow quilted stitching, the watch takes up the theme of the innovative microfibre used by Mercedes-AMG in its new Mercedes AMG GT. The Ingenieur Automatic Edition “AMG GT” is limited to 25 watches and available only from selected IWC authorized retailers.
