The Pilot's Watch Chronograph Edition “Blue Angels®” Story

From this year onward, IWC is an official Licensee of the US Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron. The aerobatics flying team was founded in 1946 at the instruction of the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. It currently comprises six Navy and Marine pilots, who fly F/A-18 Hornet jets. The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Blue Angels®” is powered by the IWC-manufactured 89361 calibre and displays the stopped hours and minutes combined on a subdial at “12 o’clock”. Thanks to the integrated flyback function, simply pressing the reset push-button returns the stopwatch hands to zero and immediately starts a new time measurement. The watch is housed in a case made of matt black zirconium oxide ceramic, while the dial and calfskin strap are blue. The separate depiction of the minutes in the outer ring and the hours on a smaller inner ring is reminiscent of the observer's watches of the 1930s and 1940s. The inner ring supplies an eye-catching yellow highlight on the dial. The crest of the «Blue Angels®» is engraved on the case back.

Calibre Family 89000

The 89000-calibre family includes powerful chronograph movements with flyback function, which are used, for example, for the big digital date and month displays.
