The Volvo Round the World Yacht Race is almost upon us again (barring an overland section to avoid those dastardly Somalian pirates).
IWC – official timekeepers for the race – are giving the winners one of these beauties.
There’ll also be an IWC cup presented to the team who travel the farthest in a 24 hour period.
Back to the watch though: it’s a 45mm titanium piece (this will be the first Yacht Club Chronograph model to be available in titanium).
It has a carbon fiber dial, and houses the IWC Caliber 89361 movement.
This has a 68 hour power reserve, fly-back chronograph and hour and minute counters combined in a single dial.
The strap is a rubber affair.
Very nice (even better from the rear I’d say!).
