Nico Rosberg Watch: Rolex, IWC and Oris Watch. Apparently, while we were not looking, our imaginary F1 boyfriend Nico Rosberg retired from Formula 1 after he was crowned champion in 2016.
Awww, we know the retirement happened years ago but we still felt a tinge of sadness when we learned about it. He’s too young! He’s got more championship years ahead of him. But, then again, we are not Nico and we gotta respect his decision. We also agree with three-time Formula 1 champion Jackie Stewart who commended Nico for retiring on his own terms.
From the Telegraph: “Sir Jackie Stewart has described Nico Rosberg’s decision to retire suddenly from Formula One at the age of 31 as ‘courageous and wise’, noting that the German did not lose ‘a drop of blood’ from his body and retired on his own terms, as world champion.
The British paper quotes Stewart as saying: “I think it’s great news. Very few drivers have had the courage to do what Nico has done. Or the wisdom. To come through without a drop of blood off his body, to win the world title, and then to say ‘that’s it, I’m done’. I just think it’s terrific.”
Anyhoo, since this original post is about Nico’s watch we should note that in 2017 or a year after his retirement, IWC Schaffhausen released the Ingenieur Chronograph “Tribute to Nico Rosberg” to honor the F1 world champion. Check it out:
