MR PORTER - TAKE HOME THE BRONZE!

THE IWC BIG PILOT’S WATCH 43 “MR PORTER EDITION 1” (REF. IW329703) INTRODUCES ITSELF

 

Still looking for a rewarding New Year’s resolution?

 

Sure, you need to get back in shape and finish reading all those books piling up on your nightstand. But why not treat yourself to something really special? The ultimate statement piece of 2023 to showcase on your wrist, perhaps…? A loyal companion, through thick and thin.

 

And, since you are browsing, may I be so bold as to propose that I may be just that?

 

Yours truly, for 2023 and beyond.

THE MATERIAL OF CHOICE

 

What I Am Wearing…

 

Bronze lovers, make some noise for I am one of those rare timepieces that boast a case and crown made of the golden-brown.

 

Now, you have already learned a thing or two about That Patina Vibe from my little brother, the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41, but did you know that bronze – an alloy of copper and tin – is the first metal alloy to be created by humans? Harder and more durable than its predecessors, it replaced stone and copper as the material of choice for tools, armor and artifacts.

 

The material experts at IWC even went a step further by using a combination of various metals that makes my alloy about 50 percent harder than standard bronze…

 

I’ll let that sink in for a moment.

 

 

 

 

 

DRESS TO IMPRESS

 

My Character…

 

Always be the most interesting watch in the room – that’s my maxim. And, admittedly, I am not easy to ignore.

 

I am the definition of “dress to impress”. In a fusion of Mr. Porter’s stylish flair and the Big Pilot’s functional design, Mr. Porter and IWC joined forces to create me. I’m limited to just 500 pieces. As with each timepiece, my number is engraved on my titanium case back along with my name, “MR PORTER EDITION 1”.

 

Inside my case beats the IWC-manufactured 82100 caliber – IWC’s robust automatic movement with the highly efficient self-winding system. IWC’s former technical director Albert Pellaton developed this revolutionary invention during the 1950s. It is with great honor that I carry this architecture within me.

 

 

 

 

“I’m not shy – understatement has never been my thing. I love stark contrasts and standing out from the crowd. And why wouldn’t I?”

 

 

 

 

 

MAKE IT GLOW

 

My Personality…

 

I’m not shy – understatement has never been my thing. I love stark contrasts and standing out from the crowd. And why wouldn’t I? My gold-plated hands beautifully contrast with my jet-black dial, in harmony with my black microfiber strap that allows the golden-brown hue of my 43-mm bronze case glow.

 

Speaking of glow: in honor of my name, my designers decided to illuminate my numeral ‘1’ with Super-LumiNova®. So there is no way for you to hide in the shadows.

 

But who would want to in 2023…?
