AAA replica IWC launched a team watch at the Miami Grand Prix this past May. Everyone from mechanics to executives was issued the watch, and you can spot them on their wrists at the races. Every single person on the team wears one – except automotive tycoon Toto Wolff. He’s been spotted wearing something different, but for a while, no one knew what it was.
And now we know. It’s the cheap fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Toto Wolff x Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team.” For those who don’t follow Formula 1, Toto Wolff is the team principal and CEO of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. He also has a 33 percent stake in the team.
It’s a striking super clone watch, featuring a smoked glass dial showcasing the caliber 52615 inside, a ceratanium case and crown, and blacked-out hands filled with Petronas green-colored lume. 100 examples of the Swiss made replica IWC have been made (and 99 have already been sold). Toto wears number 50, but not for long.
He’s putting his personal high quality fake IWC up for auction with Bonhams to benefit At Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team driver Lewis Hamilton’s non-profit Ignite, which focuses on supporting diversity within the motorsports world. The proceeds go directly to the foundation, and the winning bid gets a personal phone call with Toto, as well as a tour of the team’s HQ and operations center.
Additionally, perfect replica IWC has pledged an annual contribution of EUR 50,000 to Ignite on top of the proceeds from the sale of this watch.
