Man of the Match winners IWC Schaffhausen watches.
Apart from pushing his side closer towards ultimate glory in the event, there is an extra incentive for individuals to excel during the ICC Champions Trophy 2009. Each man of the match will win an exclusive IWC watch worth US$8,500 (Rand 60,000).

As a Swiss watch manufacturer and one of the world's leading brands in the international market for luxury timepieces, IWC Schaffhausen has been setting standards in technological development and highly complicated precision watch-making since 1868. 

Beyond its Haute Horlogerie timepieces, IWC has often related to the inspiration exuded by sporting heroes and has launched several limited special editions of timepieces that are soaring heroes in their own right. 

"IWC's values of precision, perfection and technical competence are mirrored in the man-of-the-match concept. I wish all the cricketers exciting matches and may the 15 outstanding players wear our watches with passion and pride," said IWC Schaffhausen Chief Executive Georges Kern.

Each of the 15 winners of the man-of-the-match award will receive an IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph Automatic, a timeless, sportingly elegant timepiece. The dial of the robust mechanical chronograph with day and date display is reminiscent of an aircraft cockpit. 

With its soft iron inner case for protecting against magnetic fields, a power reserve of 44 hours and water-resistance to 6 bar, the Pilot's Watch Chronograph Automatic is a perfect timepiece to keep soaring heroes on the ball.
