  • Hand luggage for frequent flyers

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    In view of rapidly advancing globalization, it is becoming increasingly important for pilots, frequent flyers and international business people to keep track of what is happening in different time zones. The new Pilot’s Watch Worldtimer from IWC Schaffhausen masters this challenge elegantly and practically, even when crossing the International Date Line.

  • Simply, ingeniously digital

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    The Spitfire Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month is the first Pilot’s Watch launched by IWC Schaffhausen to feature a perpetual calendar, a digital date and month display, and an innovative stopwatch display. The IWC-manufactured 89800 calibre provides a suitable drive.

  • Down-to-earth high-flyer

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    Since its initial launch in 2006, the Spitfire Chronograph from IWC Schaffhausen has enjoyed increasing popularity. Now, with its slate-coloured dial, it has an attractive new face and, with the IWC-manufactured 89365 calibre, a drive that leaves nothing to be desired.

  • The Pilot's Watch heritage

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    Watch legends like the Big Pilot’s Watch of 1940 or the Mark 11 of 1948 have had a decisive influence on the new appearance of the classical pilot’s watches. In 2012, their successors, the Big Pilot’s Watch and the Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII, demonstrate that IWC Schaffhausen continues to write the success story of these pioneering watches even now, over 70 years later.

  • IWC powers vertical take-off

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    In 2012, the year of the Pilot’s Watches, IWC Schaffhausen is proud to unveil the new products from its Spitfire collection. In terms of design, finishing, materials and, needless to say, technology, the new Spitfire models are indeed off to a flying start. Taking centre stage is the digital date display of the perpetual calendar, inspired by cockpit instrumentation like the altimeter.

  • Haute Horlogerie for the cockpit

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    The sheer power and technical superiority of the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN are clear for all to see. Much like the hangars housing the state of the art supersonic jets at the elite flying school in Fallon, Nevada, the impressive high-tech ceramic case of this watch accommodates some of watchmaking’s greatest achievements.

  • Classic high-flyers

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    For over 70 years, IWC Schaffhausen has been making professional timepieces for pilots and their passengers. In 2012, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Classics collection will be appearing with five models in the authentic cockpit-style design. The basic qualities of these classics remain timeless: precision, functionality and reliability.

  • A tribute to the supermen of the skies

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    Heading up the professional Pilot’s Watches from IWC Schaffhausen is the new 2012 TOP GUN collection. And in the vanguard is the new Miramar line: a tribute to the birthplace of the Top Gun legend in California.

  • Team spirit and tradition

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    Inspired by the spirit of the first Top Gun flight school in Miramar, California, two models in the TOP GUN collection race into 2012: the Big Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Miramar and the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Miramar.

  • Tradition reinterpreted

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    More than 70 years after its maiden flight and
    10 years after a greatly publicized relaunch,
    the Big Pilot’s Watch finally enters the jet age
    in 2012 thanks to the TOP GUN line.

  • Every second counts

    16 January, 2012 - 3 years, 7 months ago

    The top pilot’s job is an ongoing struggle against time: when an alert sounds, he has to start working with all the precision of a watch movement and have his jet up in the air within no time. A chronograph with down-to-the-second accuracy is de rigueur in the TOP GUN Pilot’s Watch line.
