Editor's Notes

The famous 'Big Pilot's' watch was first produced in the '40s when IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN was commissioned to produce 1000 military navigators' timepieces. This latest model scales the original’s 55mm proportions down to a 46.2mm stainless steel case, made distinct by an enlarged screw-in crown. The in-house automatic 52110 calibre employs ceramic and zirconium oxide to make the self-winding action resilient to wear, while the indexless balance and Breguet spring together refine precision.
