The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Rodeo Drive” Story
The “Rodeo Drive” edition refers to the address of IWC’s boutique in Los Angeles. The perpetual calendar independently recognizes the different lengths of the months and the leap years. It will run without any correction needed until 2100. The double moon phase display depicts the earth’s satellite for viewers on both the northern and southern hemisphere and only needs to be adjusted by one day after 577.5 years. The IWC-manufactured 52615 calibre features an automatic Pellaton winding system, fitted with components made of virtually wear-free ceramic. With the help of two barrels, it builds up a power reserve of 7 days. The technical functionality of this Big Pilot’s Watch includes a soft-iron inner cage to shield the movement from the adverse effects of magnetic fields on accuracy.
