Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen unveils its Ingenieur Automatic Edition “AMG GT”(Ref. IW324602), the first watch worldwide to feature a case made of boron carbide, currently the hardest ceramic of them all.
Anthony Davidson, winner of last year’s FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and former FORMULA ONE driver, was in no hurry with his FORMULA ONE racing car at the start, but soon moved into top gear and put in a fantastic performance to cross the finishing line at the same time as the other two vehicles. Apart from this spectacle, visitors to the Goodwood Members’ Meeting witnessed a series of keenly contested races and high-speed demonstrations featuring cars from the pre-war era to 1990s Group C proto types. Among others, FORMULA ONE cars from the 1970s and a group of wild 250 mph Group C Le Mans cars demonstrated their prowess.
At the end of the race weekend, IWC Schaffhausen honoured the driver who had recorded the fastest lap time with a special timepiece from the Ingenieur line: the Ingenieur Chronograph Silberpfeil (Ref. IW378505) is a tribute to the historic Mercedes-Benz racing cars, which won countless Grand Prix races and championships between 1934 and 1939, and were successful once again in 1954/55.
The Ingenieur Automatic Edition “AMG GT” is limited to 25 pieces and available from selected IWC retailers.
