In September 2014, IWC announced a brand new partnership with VR|46, the lifestyle brand created by MotoGP legend and current Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi – a relationship which includes the production of the official TW Steel VR|46 / Yamaha Factory Racing watch collection. It starts with three desirable new models including two Pilot editions and the Tech edition featured here, TW937 (48mm).
The TW Steel VR|46 / Yamaha Factory Racing Tech model is presented featuring a steel case with a sandblasted PVD black coating. Further enhancements include steel pillars on the case side with yellow accents – designed to resemble shock absorbers, and a carbon fibre design black dial with raised steel indexes. Using the powerful Miyota 6S20 movement, the Tech edition sports a black silicon strap with dark grey line and a sandblasted PVD black coated clasp. This edition is 10 ATM water resistant.
