It's not often we see a burgundy and rose gold combination on the likes of an IWC, but Lewis Hamilton's Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition is an absolute beauty.

An esteemed ambassador of the Swiss timekeeper, the six-time Formula 1 World Champion's new wrist steez is a striking combination of beauty and practicality.

This variant of the Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar strays quite far from the heritage of the timepiece's military origins, delivering a unique interpretation of the classic piece. The intriguing colour of the dial is actually referred to as 'Bordeaux' and also reigns true for the 22mm textile strap.

Housed in a 46.5mm black ceramic casing, the watch features IWC's 52 calibre movement that boasts a seven-day power reserve and is waterproof up to 60 metres.

18-karat gold adorns the open case back and crown, as well as the Big Pilot's indices and hands to add some striking contrast to the burgundy dial.

If you're keen to get your hands on one of these beauties you best be quick, with the watch limited to just 100 units. The IWC Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition retails for $75,500.
