The International Watch Company (IWC) has come up with some of the most iconic watches. Founded in 1868, Florentine Ariosto Jones commenced his watch business in Schaffhausen with a vision of combining Swiss craftsmanship with modern engineering technology.
The model IW377701 of IWC Pilot's Chronograph series comes in a stainless steel case, exhibiting a satin finish. Its matte black dial is perfectly complemented with its slightly recessed sub-dial, which together feature a fine concentric circle pattern. The hour markers are a combination of Arabic numerals and indexes with a bold triangle positioned at 12 o’clock. White painted minute tracks ensure enhanced legibility. You can view the time even in complete darkness as the quarter hour markers have luminous coating. The 30 minute sub-dial counter is located at the upper portion of the dial and the 12 hour sub-dial counter is located at the lower portion. You can view the day and date in an elongated date window at the 3 o’clock position. The small seconds sub-dial has a red hand and is located at the 9 o’clock position.
This watch’s case window is made of scratch proof sapphire crystal that renders the watch shatter proof. It protects the watch so zealously that only a diamond can scratch it. Besides, the anti-reflective property of the crystal offers an increased level of sunlight legibility. An inner soft iron case is also featured in the timepiece, which provides additional protection against magnetic fields.
The instrument is equipped with the advanced IWC Caliber 79320 movement that enables the watch to beat at 28, 800 vph. It has a power reserve of 44 hours and is water resistant up to 60 metres.
In 1976, the first Happy Diamonds watch that was launched, was initally intended for men.
Pocket watches used by pilots were the norm when aviation first became a science. IWC soon changed that by revolutionising wristwatches wholly modelled for pilots. In 1936 the first special Pilot’s watch was introduced into the market, fitted and customized only for the pilot’s convenience. In 1940 the world was introduced to the Big Pilot’s watch which was a classic rendition of a cockpit design in an aircraft. The equipment was laid out in accordance to the placing of instruments in a cockpit. This was soon followed by IWC’s cleverly engineered Mark XII which was crafted as a tribute to the Royal Air force in 1948 and has been loved and used for more than 2 score years till date.
The first few editions of the Pilot's watches were crafted with sound and pleasing aesthetics. Built with a clean and simplistic look in mind, the watch had a rotating bezel with an arrowhead index to help keep track of short periods of time as well as an antimagnetic escapement incorporated in it. The luminescent hands and numerals provide high contrast and great visualization. These luxury time-pieces have bold, rugged straps that embody the spirit of the adventurer. Sapphire glass in highly polished form is used in the making of these time-pieces to provide resistance to air pressure. This is purely a traveller’s watch. Many outstanding modifications and improved movements have been implemented in this collections design since 2012. The cases are made from a variety of dependable and fashionable material such as rose gold, stainless steel and ceramic. The dial comes in individualistic colours including black, blue, silver and brown, pampering customers till they are spoilt for choice.
The IWC’s Pilot's watch family welcomed in its midst a fresh new edition - the Top Gun watch, named in honour of the special training course offered by the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, the ‘Strike Fighter Tactics instructor’ which has been famously dubbed ‘Top Gun’. Five new intricately designed models of the Top Gun collection came out to the fore in 2012, more than enough for Top Gun to delineate and become an independent line altogether.
