Alan Ross Wrote:There is a book about the history of IWC pilot watches. I forget the name because I don't have it with me. But MF would know the name. It goes into all kinds of detail about how the line developed. But basically it was war related. I am sure someone on the forum has the title.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:Also, Hannes Pantli tells a story about how the Rauschenbach sons (the father was owner of IWC) were aviators in the 1930s. He conjectures that the 1930s special watch for pilots really was either for them or produced due to them. It's a great story, it makes some sense and we'll never know with certainty.
