The Big Pilot’s Watch 43, a big step in IWC’s history

This year, IWC Schaffhausen has come out with a slightly smaller version of the classic Big Pilot’s Watch. Given that the 46 mm model is not for everyone, the brand wanted to offer a 43 mm dial. The watch pays tribute to the legendary military observation timepiece from the 1940s. Here's a look at this pilot’s model.

Smaller, but still as captivating

With its steel case measuring 43 mm in diameter and its 192 components, the brand’s iconic watch remains at the top in terms of quality. With its automatic Pellaton winding, the watch builds up a 60-hour power reserve. Moreover, it’s water resistant to a depth of 100 metres. You can contemplate the IWC-manufactured 82100 calibre, a movement designed to ensure reliability and precision, through the depressurisation-resistant and glare-proof sapphire glass case back.

A versatile design

Inspired by “flieger” watches, the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 could be described as understated, minimalist and comfortable. IWC sought to stay true to its DNA in this model. No room for frills. There is no date or complication to be found here. You can admire the manufacturer's signature three-hand style pilot's watch. The result is the perfect expression of the modern sporty watch, a sports watch that is easy to wear on a daily basis for a simple and effective look.

To each his own style

Because it is important to be able to assert your style or to change it when you want, the brand offers several strap options. With the EasX-CHANGE system, you can choose between a brown or black calfskin strap or a finely-finished steel bracelet. The dial comes in two colours: black or blue. All you have to do is make a choice. A timepiece full of attractive features that you will find at our shops !
