Seven-time Formula 1 World Champion and known Louis Vuitton aficionado Sir Lewis Hamilton was also in attendance, wearing head-to-toe LV like many of the show’s high-profile guests.
Well, not all LV. On his wrist was his piece unique cheap replica IWC Schaffhausen Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar “Black Lives Matter”, a one-off take on the Swiss brand’s complex watch that they gifted him during the 2020 Formula 1 World Championship, where Lewis publically supported the Black Lives Matter movement on the grid and kickstarted a more socially conscious era for F1.
Crafted from Swiss movement fake IWC’s proprietary Ceratanium compound, this fully blacked-out piece was the first 1:1 super clone IWC Big Pilot to ever have a Ceratanium case, as well as the first with a Ceratanium bracelet (or any bracelet for that matter). Exceptionally rare, it’s both a piece of watchmaking and F1 history.
