When creating the IWC-manufactured calibre 59235, the watch designers added a date display with large numerals to the hand-wound calibre 59210 with a power reserve of 8 days. The date is displayed using a double date ring, with one disc containing the tens and another disc containing the units. The power reserve display had to be positioned on the reverse side so that the dial could preserve the uncluttered style that is characteristic of Pilot’s Watches. To this end, the soft-iron cage was fitted with a circular display window without compromising protection against magnetic fields.
With the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “150 Years” (Ref. IW377725), IWC is launching an anniversary edition of this popular chronograph that is limited to 1,000 watches:
- Stainless steel, white dial with lacquered finish, blued hands (Ref. IW377725)
