Usually brands like IWC
offer a single piece in celebration of a partnership with a new celebrity, athlete, or likewise. Yet here is the second timepiece by IWC made with French soccer (ahem, football) player Zinedine Zidane in mind. Again, using the Ingenieur watch as the palette - this time it is the Big Ingenieur watch and case that is the base. This watch is the Ingenieur version of the brand's very popular Big Pilot watch. They have similar dimensions being 45.5mm wide - here in steel. They also have the same wonderful in-house made Calibre 51113 automatic movements with an eight-day power reserve (complete with indicator on the dial). The unique black and red color schemes for the watch contain some hidden meanings that are important to fans of Zidane.
The limited edition piece is perfect for fans of the sport of the man. For the football fanatic father, this just might be the perfect father's day gift (assuming your budget and love of dad are robust enough). There will only be 500 of these new IWC Zinedine watches in the Big Ingenieur watch case. They are matched to a black alligator strap, and come with all the standard rugged durability that the Ingenieur watch case and design is famous for. Prices at $13,000.
