With Lewis Hamilton sporting their range, IWC timepieces like the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Edition ‘Lewis Hamilton', the IWC Schaffhausen Pilot World Timer and the limited edition Big Pilot have had a huge number of eyeballs on them. Most recently, Hamilton was spotted wearing
the latest IWC Da Vinci Perpetual Calendar Chronograph too. With a fan following as much

Tag Heuer Max Verstappen Special
Price: `1.24 lakh* From: helioswatchstore.com
The young Formula One hero deserves to have a special edition named after him, doesn't he? With a lively orange colour calf leather strap it complements the young Dutchman very well. The 43mm stainless steel watch has a blue aluminium bezel and a lot of orange accents. The first 18 second markers are in Orange and that is not purely for aesthetics. It signifies the fact that Max won his first Grand Prix when he was 18 and became the youngest Grand Prix winner of all
time in the process.
Hublot Big Bang Unico
Price: `29.12 lakh From: ethoswatches.com
Sebastian Vettel is particularly fond of the Hublot Big Bang Unico collection. He has previously worn a White Ceramic and King Gold watch from the collection. The watch is painstakingly assembled by hand. The dial of the Ferrari Unico has Arabic numerals with a chronograph counter at three o'clock and Ferrari's prancing horse logo is at nine o'clock. Maybe the watch will bring him the luck this year.
Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Ceramic
Price: `19.36 lakh* From: jomashop.com
The ‘Iceman' as he is popularly known wears a Hublot as the watchmaker is Scuderia Ferrari's title watch sponsor. His personal favourite is a Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Ceramic Carbon; a limited edition chronograph. The watch is completely made of carbonfibre and its dial is framed by six black platinum PVD screws and it stands out due to bold yellow bits in an otherwise grey background. The watch comes with a massive 72-hour power reserve and is the perfect fit for
someone as cool as Raikkonen.
