Aviator watches by IWC have always been infused with mankind's dream of flying. Each is special in its own way, and some have been elevated to icon status. The Mark Series took off back in 1948 with the Mark 11, and the tradition of rugged elegance continues today with the various references of the Mark XVIII (Ref. 3270, Ref. IW324702). As ever, everything about it has been reduced to the essentials, providing a beautiful – and beautifully pure – experience.
The Pilot's Watch UTC was introduced in 1998, and enabled the wearer to change the hour and date to match local time with a simple twist of the crown. The Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph was the first double chronograph from IWC. It debuted in 1992, and has been one of the most sought-after vintage IWCs ever since. The design and functionality also was an obvious inspiration for the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” (Ref. IW371808) of the current collection.
The Big Pilot's Watch harkens back to the oversized B-Uhr. At 46.2mm it has real presence and goes perfectly with a suit and tie - or a flight suit. Current references include the Big Pilot’s Watch featuring various special editions (Ref. 5009), the Big Pilot’s Watch Heritage (Ref. IW501004 and -05) and Heritage 48 (Ref. IW510301), the special editions of the Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar (Ref. 5027), the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Antoine de Saint-Exupéry” (Ref. IW503801), and the Big Pilot’s Watch Top Gun (Ref. IW502001).
