Made of lightweight titanium, the Big Pilot's Heritage Watch 48 tips the scales at just 120 grams.
The black dial with the triangle is one of the features typical of a classic pilot's watch.
A soft-iron inner case inside the watch protects it against magnetic fields.
A small aperture with a sapphire-glass cover at the back of the watch provides a view of the power reserve display.
The Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48 is limited to 1000 pieces.
The watch was unmistakably inspired by the historic IWC Cal. 52 T.S.C observer's watch of the 1940s.
For 75 years the historic 52-calibre T. S. C. Big Pilot’s Watch was the largest wristwatch ever built in Schaffhausen. Now, IWC Schaffhausen is launching the Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 55 with a case measuring a massive 55 millimetres in diameter. At less than 150 grams, the titanium case is not quite as heavy as the original stainless-steel version, which weighed 183 grams. As in the original model, the chapter ring, Arabic numerals and propeller-like hands are all beige in colour. The movement is protected against magnetic fields by a soft-iron inner case. The hand-wound mechanism has a friction clutch to prevent overwinding. The in-house IWC hand-wound 98300 calibre runs for a full 46 hours. The brown calfskin strap is divided into two sections that are sewn together at the ends. This means the watch cannot fall down accidentally as it is fastened on the owner’s wrist. Available in a limited edition of just 100 watches, it will appeal primarily to collectors and lovers of authentic pilot’s watches. The Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48 makes slightly more concessions to current expectations as regards design and practicality. Thanks to the use of lightweight titanium, the 48-millimetre case weighs in at 120 grams and is ideal for everyday wear. The designers also decided to retain the small seconds hand in the subdial. The in-house IWC hand-wound 59215 calibre has an 8-day power reserve. Despite an aperture in the back of the watch for the power reserve display, the soft-iron inner case giving protection against magnetic fields is retained. This watch is available in a limited edition of 1,000.
It is not only the impressive size but also the unmistakable visual features that will set the pulse of watch connoisseurs racing. The IWC hand-wound 59215 calibre gives owners the convenience of a 192-hour power reserve that guarantees accurate running for 8 days before it automatically stops. Despite the power reserve display at the back of the watch, this Pilot’s Watch also features protection against magnetic fields.
