IWC Schaffhausen will be bringing the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Simulator to the Great Room of The Galleria in Abu Dhabi between 31 October and 7 November 2013. Coinciding with the 2013 FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX race, the exhilarating Simulator will give visitors the exclusive opportunity to experience as closely as possible the real-life feeling of driving on a FORMULA ONE track. The driver recording the fastest lap on each day will have the chance to win a prize.

This is truly an alliance of greats as both entities reinforce each other’s values of precision, performance and technology.

A PARTNERSHIP OF GREATS

IWC Schaffhausen became the Official Engineering Partner of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ Team in 2013. This is truly an alliance of greats as both entities reinforce each other’s values of precision, performance and technology. Inspired by the intriguing and diverse world of its partner, MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS, IWC’s timepieces are crafted with materials characteristically used in the sport, such as titanium, carbon fibre and ceramic. Lending a deeper touch to the partnership, IWC Schaffhausen welcomed team drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg as Friends of the Brand earlier this year.
