IWC CEO Christopher Granger Hull said: ‘Lewis’ achievements cannot be underestimated. Only a real champion can maintain such a high level for many years, especially in a highly competitive sport like F1. Failure sometimes differs by only a few milliseconds. We are very proud to have been working with Lewis since 2013, and he embodies the spirit of perfection, enthusiasm and quality-this is also the value concept we, as watchmakers, treasure. / Wen Watch House Xu Chaoyang)
