IWC Pilots Watch Hand-Wound "Vintage" Stainless Steel Black Dial on Brown Leather Strap 44mm
A modern interpretation of the “mother of all IWC Pilot’s Watches” featuring the classical instrument look of a cockpit with luminescent hands and numerals. Technically speaking, the Pilot’s Watch Hand-Wound with its rotating bezel, pocket watch movement from the 98000-calibre family, large screw balance and Breguet spring represents the state of the art. With see-through sapphire-glass back.
SINCE 1936: THE MOTHER OF ALL IWC PILOT’S WATCHES
The fact that the modern interpretation bears such an uncanny resemblance to the “mother of all IWC Pilot’s Watches” is no coincidence: the classical cockpit-like look of the design, with its luminescent hands and numerals and black dial, has remained unchanged to this day. From a technical point of view, the Pilot’s Watch Hand-Wound, with its rotating bezel and arrowhead index, represents the state of the art: instead of the original 83 calibre, the new version from the IWC Vintage Collection features a pocket watch movement from the 98000-calibre family – hand-wound with a large screw balance and Breguet spring. The basic calibre stems from the 1930s and has been series-produced for longer than most other IWC movements. Through the see-through sapphire-glass back, you can see two technical features reminiscent of the first Jones calibres of 1868: the decorated nickel-silver three-quarter bridge and the Jones arrow. The elongated index served IWC’s founder as a means of adjusting the balance’s oscillating frequency and has remained a hallmark of Jones watches to this day.
