IWC Schaffhausen recently unveiled the new Big Pilot’s Watch 43mm at the Watches & Wonders exhibition in Geneva. As a faithful interpretation of the iconic pilot’s watch design, the new model features a highly ergonomic 43-millimetre steel case. Available in either a black or a blue dial, it is powered by the IWC in-house manufactured 82100 calibre movement with the unique Pellaton winding system, which can be viewed via a see-through sapphire crystal case back.
Additionally, the watch offers a user-friendly quick-change system as well as a range of comprehensive strap options in leather, rubber, and stainless steel. These features establish the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 as a quintessential modern-day sports watch, forever ready for adventures, be it in the air, on land, or in water.
The All-New IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43
Whether it’s the striking conical crown, the open and legible dial, or the strap with four rivets, all of these features express the essence of IWC’s Big Pilot’s Watch. The uncompromising functional design of the timepiece, which is in the form of a comprehensive cockpit instrument, was inspired by a 1940s military observation watch. The oversized crown is a detail that the modern Big Pilot’s Watch shares with its ancestor.
The Big Pilot’s Watch aptly encapsulates IWC’s vast heritage and expertise in engineering and developing rugged as well as reliable instruments custom crafted to meet the requirements of elite aviators. The watch exemplifies how a functional design can actually transform into a cultural symbol. Today, the Big Pilot’s Watch has not just become one of the most popular watch designs in the world but also coveys a sophisticated mindset.
IWC is adding a brand-new chapter to its success story and the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 (Ref. IW3293) is evidence of that. The timepiece is an authentic interpretation of the iconic Pilot’s Watch design as it offers a clean display without either a date window or a power reserve indicator. It offers a 43-millimetre stainless steel case that emphasizes on enhanced wearability as well as ergonomics.
Making History In-House
Keeping user-friendliness as a top priority, the brand has developed the new quick-change strap system. It enables the wearer to change the strap quickly and easily. This allows for easy adaptation as the watch swiftly adjusts to different surroundings or activities. A wide range of accessories, such as leather and rubber straps in various colours are available for every environment. A new stainless-steel bracelet with a fine adjustment clasp mechanism offering enhanced ergonomics and comfort is also on the table. Additionally, a reworked case construction makes sure that the timepiece is now water-resistant to up to 10 bar or 100 meters.
