If you're going to build a watch to commemorate a partnership with AMG, you've got to build something pretty special and since we're talking about IWC here you know this is going to be one hell of a timepiece. The watchmaker took their sport-focused Ingenieur model and crafted a case made from the hardest ceramic of them all, Boron Carbide. 

Built in five stages, this is the first watch in the world to use the high-tech material and is almost as hard as a diamond and is as light as aluminum. The watch also features IWC's in-house 80110-calibre which has an integrated shock-absorption system. The dial is also decorated with hits of yellow, a color inspired by the AMG-GT's "solarbeam" colorway and the screws in the bezel are made of black zirconium oxide. The watch will be limited to 25 pieces and is now available from select IWC retailers.
