The Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL

Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber

The extraordinary Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL

The extraordinary Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL

The Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL features one of the world’s most advanced anti-shock systems. Eight years in development, the IWC patented SPRIN-g PROTECT system is an extraordinary feat of engineering made real.

SPRIN-g PROTECT system

An Experiment with 30000 Gs

The Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL is born from our new division, IWC Experimental, a department designed to push the limits of engineering. The patented SPRIN-g PROTECT system is what makes the impossible a reality. Able to protect against extreme impact, it brings the promise of shock resistance to new levels. In impact tests conducted at the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, a protected movement has survived accelerations in excess of 30,000 g.

The Strength of Ceratanium®

The Strength of Ceratanium®

The Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL features a case made of a ground-breaking, patented material, Ceratanium®, an IWC-developed material based on a proprietary titanium alloy. It is as light and robust as titanium but at the same time similarly hard and scratch resistant as ceramic.

Ceratanium
Calibre 32115

120 Hours of Power and Durability

Powered by the IWC manufactured 32115 calibre, the Big Pilot’s Watch Shock Absorber XPL is powerful inside and out. Some components are made from a high-tech aluminum alloy to be light and strong. The bidirectional pawl winding system builds up a power reserve of 120 hours.

Manufakturzentrum

A Space Advanced As The Watches It Makes

The Manufakturzentrum. Twenty-five engineering firms, 70 construction companies, and 100 craftsmen worked for 2 years to make it a reality. Home to more than 400 craftsmen and employees, it is here that movements are made, assembled and researched.

It is the biggest ever investment in IWC’s history and a clear sign of our commitment to the town and people of Schaffhausen, the historic Swiss town that gives “IWC Schaffhausen” its name.
