DISTANCE RACER. As part of its new partnership with the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team, IWC Schaffhausen designed a timepiece that draws its inspiration from the world of F1 engineering.
The sporty Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month is made from titanium aluminide, an alloy widely used in motorsport thatis lighter and more robust than pure titanium. And just as modern racing cars have a boost button designed to provide maximum thrust when needed, the perpetual calendar has a digital date and leap year display that is boosted by a revolutionary quick-action switch. It helps to maintain the watch’s long term precision, allowing it to stay completely accurate all the way until the year 2100.
