Description

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 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 44-millimeter diameter represents the state of the art. Instead of the original 83 caliber, the Pilot's Watch Hand-Wound features a pocket watch movement from the 98000-caliber 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 sapphire glass back you can see two technical features reminiscent of the first Jones calibre 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.As in all the models of the IWC Vintage Collection, the platinum version is limited to 500 watches, although the stainless steel version is unlimited.
