Editor's Notes

Designed with a hardy 46mm stainless steel case and easy-to-read black dial, this IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN watch is based on the original 1940 'Big Pilot's' model. It's powered by an IWC-manufactured 51111 calibre automatic movement, inscribed with a JU-52 plane at the case back and fastened by a sleek leather strap. The soft-iron inner casing protects against magnetic fields and the anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal secures against displacement caused by a drop in air pressure.

We offer an eight-year warranty for all working parts and manufacturing faults for IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN watches. For more information, contact one of our experts by emailing
