The mens fake Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “Lewis Hamilton” features a carbon dial, zirconium oxide screw heads, and titanium bracelet. Both Nico and Lewis contributed to the design and materials used in their watches, which will be limited to 250 pieces each. It is a reflection of the technology at use in his F1 W05 Hybrid car as much as it is of the man himself. Lewis is a former world champion (2008) and is currently in the points lead for the 2015 championship. Aesthetically, the two watches differ considerably.
The 2014 Formula 1 season has been dominated by two drivers, and one team. Between them, they’ve claimed victory in 11 of the 14 races run this season; 7 times the two drivers have finished 1 and 2. Going in to the Singapore race this weekend, each of the drivers are presenting their own, limited edition, Ingenieur Chronograph watches. That team is Mercedes AMG Petronas, and the drivers are Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.
Each of the limited edition Ingenieur Chronograph watches feature a 45mm case and the IWC manufactured caliber 89361. It’s a robust movement with a 68 hour power reserve and a track-worthy flyback chronograph complication. It’s a perfect track day companion with an easily legible dial, and useful timing functionality. You can read an in-depth review of the Ingenieur Chronograph Racer containing the same movement over at farLeftwatch.org.
A final touch is the custom caseback design found on each watch bearing the insignia of the drivers themselves. The casebacks provide the only markings of the watch’s origins, keeping the dial clean and useful throughout. Learn more about each of these special watches right here, and don’t forget to tune in this Sunday to catch both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg race head to head in Singapore.
A stitched leather and calf-skin strap adds a touch of refinement to the overall look. For Nico, it was important to impart “passion and emotion” in his design. Nico Rosberg is currently in second place for the championship, just 3 points behind his teammate, Lewis. The Swiss fake IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Edition “Nico Rosberg” sets a formal tone. It features a titanium case and a silver plated dial with yellow and white accents.
