IWC Pilot’s Chronograph in Mint Green and Titanium

The official watch of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team.

Remodeled for 2021, the IWC Pilot chronograph with a reduced case from 43mm to 41mm is an enduring bestseller and is now easier to wear. The watchmaker has now created an online-only version of its F1 Partner Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 “Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team Edition”.

Designed to celebrate the inaugural Miami Grand Prix, this new chronograph is the first official team watch, meaning it will be worn by all team members, from mechanics to strategists. It naturally wears the team’s signature colour, the green of title sponsor Petronas.

The overall design of the new chronograph is almost the same as the standard model, only the colors are different. But there are also some new additions to show up close, including a sandblasted titanium case that sets it apart from IWC’s current offering.

The case material is eye-catching—no other pilot chronograph has a sandblasted titanium case—and it’s a smart choice for a “meter” watch. It makes the F1 Team Edition lighter than its counterparts in the Pilot’s Watch collection, with a matte, grained finish that complements the watch’s functional spirit. The metal also makes sense given the Formula 1 situation, as titanium is widely used in automotive engineering due to its corrosion resistance and high strength-to-density ratio.

But it is the mint green that makes this watch truly unique. The green livery will appeal to fans of the racing team, and more broadly, its resemblance to the currently trendy Tiffany blue is certainly a plus.

Conceptually, the collaboration isn’t surprising given that the two brands have been partners for years. In fact, IWC fake and Mercedes-AMG (the automaker and not the F1 team) started working together in 2004. A chronograph is also the most appropriate complication for racing teams. That said, there’s a disconnect between the idea of ​​a pilot’s watch and the official timepiece for the Formula 1 team.

At $7,850, this F1 team watch is less than 10 percent more than a regular production Pilot’s 41 stainless steel chronograph—a modest premium, especially given the case material, and well worth it. This new release nicely implements the historic partnership.

Racing livery
The same green color was chosen for the hour markers, hour markers and lettering, creating a captivating and unique aesthetic while still retaining the classic look of IWC’s iconic pilot’s chronograph.

The watch is basically a classic pilot chronograph, so the case remains the same size. It’s fairly thick, though it’s nearly a millimeter thinner than its 43mm predecessor. While the 41mm size is still huge, it’s more wear-resistant than the 43mm version. What’s more, the titanium case makes it more wear-resistant because it’s lighter than a steel case. price luxury watch

The movement inside is cal. 69385, the same movement as the standard pilot’s chronograph. cal launches in 2021. The 69385 is part of the 69000 series of movements. Like most IWC movements, the 69000 is designed to be robust and functional, with an industrial aesthetic at the same time.

Ulysse Nardin watch and shark conservation
In keeping with the Swiss watch manufacturer’s dedication to the protection and diversity of sharks around the world, Ulysse Nardin has launched Diver Lemon Shark, a modern functional watch designed specifically for the deep sea. The 42mm black DLC model is the latest member of the Diver series. It is equipped with a black sandblasted dial with a yellow lemon shark “signature”, three lemon sharks printed on the back and a black R-STRAP fishing net made entirely of recycled materials. The yellow accents on the bezel, dial, crown and strap pay tribute to the lemon shark, reminiscent of its skin color and its connection to the seabed. The concave bezel with domed sapphire glass creates a stylish look and is designed for those exploring the depths of the ocean.

The Diver Lemon Shark watch uses revolutionary silicon technology and was created by Ulysse Nardin at its headquarters in Le Locle, Switzerland. The dial is decorated with “shark gray” Superluminova fluorescent hour markers, and the 12 o’clock position on the bezel is marked with a yellow 0. The lemon yellow second hand, second hand and discreet stitching on the R-STRAP distinguish this model from all other models, making it a unique and coveted timepiece that pays homage to the lemon shark.

To celebrate the launch of Diver Lemon Shark on World Ocean Day, the Swiss manufacturer has collaborated with world-renowned shark experts dedicated to the study of marine life and marine conservation, bringing together two outstanding organizations: OCEARCH and FIU Medina Aquarius Program in FIU Environmental Research So.

Photographer Fred Buyle-a friend of Ulysse Nardin and a fearless deep-sea diver in the Azores-uses his craft to mark the biomarkers of sharks in order to better understand these gentle members of the Carcharhinid family. “Lemon sharks are not aggressive to humans, but they are almost a threatened species. Biomarkers are essential for understanding their lifestyle from a larger perspective,” Buyle said.

Fred used his knowledge and experience to dive with scientists, taking them to the nursery where they gave birth and documenting their brave marking process as they approached the top predators of the ocean.

Gentle giant lemon shark
The lemon shark lives mainly in Florida and is a carnivore that feeds on fish and crustaceans. They sneak close to their prey because their yellow color is easy to camouflage, which matches the sandy seabed where they live. They gave birth to young lives and obviously have the ability to form social bonds and learn from each other. The largest recorded lemon shark is 3.4 meters (11.3 feet) long. replica watches china
