IWC replica watches comprises a longstanding partnership with Mercedes Benz, for example equally the successful Formula 1 team Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and their functionality road car division AMG. This is how I discovered myself Austin, trackside to the Formula 1 Friday practice sessions employing an AMG-themed IWC on a wrist. Although this opinion is really a salute to AMG's legacy, this won't function as regular opinion of a Formula 1 experience.
Keeping up a lengthy and incredibly nerdy story on the shorter side, AMG instantly became very convenient at creating high-energy race motors. As building race engines is a very costly endeavor, by the early 70s they began generating aftermarket packages for a few Mercedes-Benz street cars. If you bought a Merc from a dealer and wanted more performance (or possibly a manual transmission) AMG was happy to help.
While perhaps gold might have been fitting for a 50th, ceramic seems a natural match for the two AMG and the IWC Ingenieur Replica ethos.
