Clearly energised by the Miami scene, Lewis Hamilton had his best weekend of the new season so far, and he wasted no time in getting the ball rolling. After a game of golf with Tom Brady earlier in the week, on the Friday Hamilton showed he meant business in Miami when he rocked up to a press conference wearing not one but three luxury replica IWC watches UK.
Paired with as many necklaces, rings and bracelets that he could get through customs, the stunt was part of a protest about the FIA’s proposed ban on jewellery while racing. The three watches in question on Hamilton’s wrists were perfect fake IWC’s brand new Mercedes AMG F1 collab (the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 Edition “Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team watch), the recently launched top fake IWC Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun Mojave Desert as well as his trusty Big Pilot’s Watch.
The stunt quickly became the talk of the weekend, which will no doubt have thrilled Swiss made replica IWC CEO Chris Grainger, who said this of the latest collab with Mercedes: “Fine watchmaking and racing are all about precision, craftsmanship and performance engineering. But it’s the human factor – the passion, the love and the dedication that make all the difference between good and great. This notion perfectly describes our long-standing partnership with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One™ team and we are celebrating this partnership with the launch of the new team super clone watch in Miami.”
Hamilton certainly played his part in celebrating the partnership, and perhaps was the catalyst for some many big names to turn up to the Miami Grand Prix to bring their A-Game in the watch stakes. Because pretty much every celebrity spotted over the course of the weekend had some epic wrist candy to show off. Here’s a rundown of the best copy watch spots from Miami’s debut grand prix.
Tom Brady has long been a big UK 1:1 replica IWC fan – make no mistake, he knows about his watches. So, after his golfing exploits with Hamilton earlier in the week, it was no surprise to see the un-retired American Football GOAT rising to the occasion and wearing a statement watch. His choice was the white ceramic AAA fake IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN “Lake Tahoe” Edition. Not everyone can pull off a white watch but when you’re Tom Brady, you can.
Michael Jordan also knows a thing or two about watches. His long love affair with classic high quality fake A Lange & Söhne pieces is pretty well documented but more recently Jordan has become obsessed with an altogether different type of horological vibe. Urwerk timepieces have only been around since 1997 and Jordan is the latest big name to be a big fan. In Miami, he wore the recently launched Urwerk UR-100V ‘Time and Culture’ Aztec watch, which has a kind of sci-fi meets 16th century Mexico feel to it – very Jumpman indeed.
