A perfect example of classical pilot’s watch, the IWC IW326504 Mark XVII is designed like the instrumentation found on the cockpit. Stainless steel is used to make the case, providing the timepiece with the required durability. The silver polished bezel demonstrates a black dial with reduced essentials to add a touch of simplicity to the timepiece. White Arabic numerals, along with 4 appliquéd stick indices, are engraved on the face of the dial as the hour markers of the watch. The minutes mark is displayed with white indexes on the outer rim of the dial. Black toned hands with white central fill, and a central hacking second’s arm render the dial with beautiful detailing. To offer extra comfort, a presidential bracelet crafted out of stainless steel, is attached to the silver lugs of the bezel, making for a firm grip and free wrist movement.
The IWC IW326504 Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII features self winding mechanical movement offering 42-hour power reserve when fully wound. It features a vertical date display window on the 3 o’ clock dial position resembling an altimeter on a Jet cockpit. The soft iron inner case protects the time piece from magnetic fields, and also secures the watch with sudden drop in air pressure. Being water resistant to 60 meters, this watch can easily withstand rain splashes. The convex Sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on both ends safeguards the inner sensitive elements of the dial from scratches and damage. The screw-in crown regulates the dial motion of hour and minute hands for a précised time keeping.
The IWC IW326504 Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII inherits the Pilot watch making expertise from its legendary predecessor Mark XI of 1940’s, or the World War’s watch. Featuring the first of its kind anti-magnetic iron core, and high pressure drop resistance, it became a much sought after timepiece among the watch enthusiasts of the world. However, these watches were discontinued 30 years after their launch.
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.
