Lewis Hamilton Reveals Unique IWC Watch for Black Lives Matter

Published

Formula One star Lewis Hamilton has just debuted a ‘one of a kind’ IWC watch. But he isn’t showing the watch for endorsement or to brag; he’s doing it to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Lewis Hamilton is the only black world champion in F1 history, not to mention the all-time record holder for most pole positions, most points in a single season, most career points, most grand slams, and more.

He has a stellar career that most Formula One drivers can only dream of, let alone regular folk.

Despite all these achievements, he has been subjected to racist abuse. And it started when he was a child.

Since attaining his status as the only black driver in Formula One, he has used his platform to break down racial barriers in the sport. Recently, he called out the Formula One world for their silence on the Black Lives Matter movement.

And when the F1 season resumed, he chose to kneel before the start of the Austrian Grand Prix; something which several other drivers did not bother to do.

That’s not all Hamilton’s done to raise awareness of the racial injustices in this world. On his Instagram story, England’s most successful F1 driver shared a close-up image of his one of a kind IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar, with a clear reference to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Big Pilot watches are distinct, even when compared to other luxury watches. And Hamilton’s one is unique even among its own kind.

The watch is pure black, from the bracelet to the dial and the ceramic case; and it makes use of IWC’s patented Ceratanium compound.

This exclusive watch additionally comes loaded with a perpetual moon phase for both the Southern and Northern hemispheres. It also has seven-day power reserve displays that show the day, date, month, and year in four digits.

The timepiece’s perpetual calendar further stands out by automatically recognizing the various lengths of each month, and it even takes leap years into account. So, there’s no need to make any adjustments until the start of the next century.

In terms of accuracy, the watch’s moon phase is even more distinctive. Its future owners—maybe Hamilton’s descendants or a watch collector—will only need to adjust the watch’s moon phase by one day for every 577 and a half years. If that doesn’t make this watch future-proof, nothing will.

It’s no stretch to say that Hamilton’s IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar is one of the most unique watches in the world.

The fact that it’s being represented for the sake of the Black Lives Matter movement only makes it stand out more.

Its functionality makes it an asset to Hamilton wherever he goes for his races, and its distinguishable looks make it stand out whenever he wears it. Because the watch has so many factors lending to its uniqueness, Hamilton might not even be able to sell it if he desires.

Lewis Hamilton has shown exceptional courage to overcome racism, both in his past and present. And to become a six-time Formula One World Champion—just one away from the legendary Michael Schumacher—while facing obstacles that no other F1 driver has, just shows how strong his resolve is.

Lewis Hamilton is one of the biggest sports icons today. There’s no doubt that he will continue being a voice for the voiceless.

He has a massive following, his peers respect him—even if the respect is begrudging from some of them—and he’s one of the most outstanding sportspersons today. The IWC Watch for Black Lives Matter is just one of the many ways he’s trying to bring attention to injustices around the world.

Bill Cosby Hopes Appearing In Rap Video With Mephis Jelks Will Help Restore His Reputation

Bill Cosby Appearing In Rap Video, Comedian Will Star In Memphis Jelks' 'The Cosby Dance'

Bill Cosby is hoping to get back in the good graces of pop culture, and his first job out of prison is a cameo in a rap video.

According to Radar Online, the 84-year-old comedian is making a cameo in rapper Memphis Jelks’ music video, dedicated to the man once dubbed “America’s Dad.”

The song is called The Cosby Dance, and the two will begin shooting in the next few months as long as Covid cooperates.

“They plan on starting production in (3) months but they’re trying to watch this resurgence of Covid and be responsible,” Radar is told.

“The greatest legacy one can pass down to their children and grandchildren is not money nor material goods, but a legacy of truth and facts.

They [media] removed The Cosby Show, A Different World, and many of my Honorary Degrees,” Cosby said in a statement to Radar.

When Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned Cosby’s sexual assault charges in June, they “restored those feelings and memories, when they vacated my conviction, due to the egregious violation of my constitutional rights.”

Cosby feels honored a rapper like Memphis Jelks would create a song solely based on him.

“Now, comes a prolific rapper, Memphis Jelks, who adds to the restoration of my legacy with a powerful new song called, ‘The Cosby Dance’ Hey, Hey, Hey — Far From Finished,” Cosby’s statement continued.

Memphis Jelks is all about Cosby, telling Radar, “I believe the upcoming generation can learn a lot about overcoming adversities by studying and applying the principles of Dr. Cosby’s educational and career choices that have helped lead to his enormous success.”

“What better way than a viral song and dance in which the lyrics celebrate some of the great attributes of one of the greatest American comedians of all time, who happens to be Black,” he added.

After Cosby’s release from prison, his rep Andrew Wyatt told Radar, Cosby is gearing up for a big television and stand-up comedy comeback.

But this though!
