Marking a successful ten years in the industry for the e-commerce giant, Mr. Porter, IWC watchmakers are offering a special collaborative piece with the launch of the MR PORTER x IWC Pilot Automatic Chronograph Limited Edition. The fashion icon, which made a click-to-buy option available for a website fashion magazine, is happy to partner with the storied IWC brand to launch what is sure to become an iconic piece. Chris Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC elaborates further on the collaboration between these two giants within their industries, “As well as demonstrating their excellent taste with carefully chosen wardrobe, discerning men punctuate their innate sense of style with a serious mechanical wristwatch. The partnership between MR PORTER and IWC Schaffhausen is so successful because we can offer both in one place.”
The Pilot’s Watch is one of IWC’s most beloved models, and this limited edition 41.1mm model pays homage to its design, which is a favorite of aviators while adding a unique twist in the bronze casing. The aesthetic continues with the subtle bronze numbers, hands, and markers. SuperLuminova is also employed to contrast with the deep, black dial to create a truly unique version of the Pilot’s Watch. Finally, to finish off this distinctive collaborative piece, the MR PORTER x IWC Pilot Automatic Chronograph Limited Edition will be the first-ever IWC watch to come with an Alcantara suede strap.
