The IWC Great Pilot’s Watch AMG G 63 is available in two versions: both with a diameter of 46.2 mm, one with a case and crown made of 18-carat Armor Gold, significantly more resistant than conventional red gold, with a black dial and black rubber strap with microfiber insert. The second version inspired by the G-Class It is the first IWC watch with a ceramic matrix composite case, developed in close collaboration with the German Aerospace Center, with integrated black finish. This light and surprisingly durable material requires a complex manufacturing process.
When it comes to pilot watches, the two AMG G 63 editions offer a lot Details inspired by the Mercedes G such as the two opposing subdials with external white rings that imitate the typical G-Class headlights. The black dials of both models feature a technical structure that appears like a relief and is inspired by the air intakes of Mercedes-AMG high-performance cars. Unlike the classic Grand Pilot’s Watch, which features printed numerals and indices, these special editions feature black PVD-coated applications filled with luminous material.
A precision engine
The two versions of the large AMG pilot’s watch G 63 are powered by IWC’s own machine, an automatic movement of great solidity and precision. The parts of the rope system that are subject to greater stress are made of zirconium oxide ceramic, a material that is almost wear-resistant. The ingenious automatic winding mechanism, developed in the 1940s, has a power reserve of seven days.
Everyone’s movements The machine is visible through the back of the watch thanks to a tinted sapphire crystal, contains a Mercedes-Benz star and is reminiscent of the spare tire cover at the rear of the G-Class. The AMG G 63 Large Pilot’s Watch is now available in IWC boutiques and IWC online for the price of 37,200 euros for the gold finish and 49,700 euros for the ceramic composite case.
