Whether you’re a Tiger fanatic, watch collector or bender king, IWC’s one-of-a-kind timepiece celebrating the life of Richmond champion Dustin Martin will get your horological juices flowing. In partnership with luxury retailer Kennedy, the custom Big Pilot is set to be auctioned off to raise money for a worthy organisation, the Australian Childhood Foundation.
The colourway will please both the Tiger faithful and luxury watch enthusiasts, with a new dial and hands in a beautiful, striking yellow to reflect the Richmond colours. Staying true to the big pilot expression, it features a 48mm black ceramic case that sits prominently on the wrist. The unique piece also comes equipped with a titanium caseback with a personal engraving, paying tribute to Kennedy and the Brownlow Medalist.
Not only a pretty face, the timepiece includes notable movement specifications. Possessing a 7-day power reserve, the 5111 Calibre features IWC’s proprietary Pellaton automatic winding mechanism and a soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields.
“The Kennedy + Martin collaboration will help us to reach children in need of vital support”, Australian Childhood Foundation’s CEO Dr Joe Tucci said.” Thanks to the generous contributions like that of the Kennedy + Martin campaign, we are able to ensure that children who need us can access the very special supports they require in order to begin healing”.
If you’re a mad footy fan, this unique timepiece from IWC could be the perfect addition to your collection. For those interesting, online bidding will be available until December 8 8.30 pm AEST, with a minimum reserve set for AU$20,000. Jump on the Kennedy website right now to register for budding.
