Editor's Notes

Created in a limited edition run of just 500 timepieces, this version of IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN's 'Big Pilot's' watch celebrates a "Mission Accomplished" of "The Longest Flight". In 2019, pilots Messrs Matt Jones and Steve Boultbee Brooks took a record-breaking 27,000-mile journey around the world in a 76-year-old Vickers Supermarine Spitfire. Memorialising the completion of the trip, it's crafted with a bronze case that will develop its own unique patina over time and has an army-green dial with a large date window and small second subdial. It's powered by a Swiss-made IWC-manufactured calibre 59235 hand-wound movement with an impressive 192-hour power reserve that's visible through the case back.
