IWC is the only Swiss watchmaker to have been awarded a licence to develop Pilot’s Watches for US Navy squadrons. The brand has designed watches for the US Navy Strike Fighter Squadron 102 “Diamondbacks” and the US Navy Strike Fighter Squadron 211 “Fighting Checkmates”.
Today, Pilot’s Watches are still developed in close collaboration with top pilots, just as they were in 1936. Feedback from the pilots about how the Pilot’s Watches perform in everyday use continues to help IWC engineers to improve and perfect their designs 85 years later.
To show appreciation to the 85 year legacy of Pilot’s Watches and its passionate collector community, IWC Schaffhausen and Watchfinder&Co.
Limited are extending their collaboration to offer the sourcing and sale of pre-owned watches from past IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s collections.
