But let’s drift from the specs for a moment. The real highlight? IWC’s star designer, Maria Luisa Mamusa. Having sat down with Hamilton, she’s been left in awe, not by his driving or his fashion sense, but by his infectious zest for the creative process. “I have had the privilege of meeting Lewis Hamilton for a design session with him and I will never forget his curiosity, collaboration, and sheer enjoyment at taking part in the creative process. I have been surprised by his kindness and laid-back peacefulness, truly incredible for someone living such a competitive and accelerated life,” Maria says.
