Pilot's chronograph by IWC


The current model of this flagship in the classic IWC pilot's watch range features an enlarged case diameter from previously 39 mm to now 42 mm. The dial is based on the design of the Big Pilot's Watch. In addition to the chrono function and date display the day of the week is also shown. As with the other pilot's watches of the Classic Collection the self-winding movement is shielded against magnetic fields by a soft iron inner case.

A powerful and at the same time restrained watch, especially popular among members of style-forming professions such as architects or designers who are free of any flashy luxury behavior. It is available in stainless steel or red gold case, either with leather or metal bracelet.
