While collaborations between Copy Watch brands and car manufacturers are not a new phenomenon, it’s a much rarer phenomenon to meet a person who owns both the watch and its corresponding car.
With the IWC Ingenieur Replica, I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of it because I’ve always been a Merc guy. I want to own more AMGs down the track, so it’ll always have a reason to be there. I wouldn’t get an IWC that isn’t an AMG version, even though there are other ones that look better. They aren’t anything special to me.
The engraving on the back is unbelievable. It’s so crisp. The people in the AMG Edition IWC Copy Watch forums think it’s cool, even if no one else does. Another surprise was that it doesn’t have micro-adjusters in the clasp, which made it super annoying to make it fit perfectly. Now I wear it a little loose.
