IWC Watches and Lewis Hamilton

IWC Pilot Perpetual Calendar Blue Dial Steel Mens Watch IW503605

Lewis Hamilton is one of the most successful drivers of all time. The English racer began his Formula One career with McLaren in 2007, then signed for the Mercedes team six years later.

Today, he’s won more races than anyone else in history, including seven joint-record titles at the World Driver’s Championship. He also holds the record for the most number of pole positions and podium finishes, and Grand Prix victories.

Off the racing track, Lewis is a style star and even has his own clothing line, developed in collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. In 2013, he was officially welcomed as an IWC ambassador, chosen by the brand for his unique fashion sense and bold taste. Check out the choice timepieces of Lewis Hamilton:


IWC Pilot Perpetual Calendar Blue Dial Steel Mens Watch IW503605

IWC Perpetual Calendar

Lewis was recently named as the face of the IWC Perpetual Calendar, launched in 2021. His penchant for standout pieces makes him the perfect representative for this striking watch, which is the newest of the brand’s collection of Flieger watches. An elegant take on the classic Perpetual Calendar, it features a satin finish, a blue sunburst dial with contrasting white Arabic numerals and minute track, and red accents that provide a beautiful splash of color.

Prior to this, the F1 star had the opportunity to co-design a limited edition Perpetual Calendar watch, bearing his own name. Crafted in black ceramic with a matte finish, the watch brings a lot of pizzazz by having a burgundy textile strap, and a matching sunburst dial with lustrous red gold-plated hands and markers.

Lewis also has a custom-made Perpetual Calendar in his watch box, which he wore to support the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. Sporting an all-black look, this is the same Perpetual Calendar you have known for years, but what gives it away is the Ceratanium construction and matte dial that makes the silver moon phase and year indicator pop. This model is also the first Big Pilot’s watch to include a ceramic bracelet. Photo from Kym Illman on Instagram

Introduced in 2017, it comes in a stunning red gold case, which is complemented by a sunray finish tobacco dial, beefy Arabic numerals, and applied luminous hands. A matching brown calfskin strap bracelet ties the whole look together.

Aside from boasting an annual calendar feature, this watch runs on the 52850 movement with a 7-day long power reserve. Lewis has worn it to important red carpet events and interviews. Photos from IWC and IWC Watches on Twitter




IWC Big Pilot Top Gun Chronograph Mojave Desert Brown Dial Mens Watch Ref. IW389103

IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Mojave Desert

Lewis was also signed as the face of the “Mojave Desert” Big Pilot’s Top Gun watches, which come in time only, chronograph, and perpetual calendar editions. This model pays homage to the US Navy’s Fighter Weapons School, also known as TOPGUN.

The “Mojave Desert” remains faithful to the Big Pilot’s design DNA with its large dial, bold hour markers and minute tracks, and luminescent hands. It also took on an updated ceramic case design in a pleasing sand color, and has a soft-iron inner case that makes it highly resistant to magnetic fields. With its subtle color scheme, the watch perfectly complements Lewis’ unconventional style. Photo from IWC Watches on Twitter

IWC Big Pilot Top Gun Lake Tahoe

Lewis also owns the eye-catching all white edition of the Top Gun pilot’s watch: the IWC Big Pilot Top Gun Lake Tahoe. Introduced in June 2023, the watch is an homage to the winter landscape around Lake Tahoe, a destination known for its crystal-clear waters and mountains. It was the newest addition to the brand’s 2022 Colors of TOP GUN collection, which featured ceramic watches inspired by the signature hues of aviation. 

Evoking a clean yet bold look, the Big Pilot Top Gun Lake Tahoe features a 46.5mm white ceramic case and a matching rubber strap with a textile inlay. Its contrasting matte black dial spreads the perpetual calendar indications in the iconic Big Pilot’s Watch style and incorporates black hands coated with white Super-LumiNova.
