Since its inception in the 1800s, IWC has consistently strived to carve its own niche in the watchmaking industry. Owing to the numerable technological advancements the company has brought in the watchmaking business, the brand is now known throughout the globe for its complicated yet world class timepieces. IWC is an integrated manufacturer that creates and assembles all parts of its watches in-house. The brand is greatly involved in developing anti-magnetic and anti-gravity movements.

The Pilot’s Watch Mark VII IW326501, taking cue from its predecessor, Mark VI, incorporates certain features that add to the efficiency of the Pilot’s classic model. This timepiece flaunts a round case, 21 jewels and a black dial with luminescent markers and white indices, enhancing visibility. Inspired by the traditional altimeter, it features vertically arranged numerals, a date display that resembles the instruments in a cockpit, and propeller style hands. The stainless steel case is 41 mm in diameter and the black adjustable strap is made of alligator leather. Equipped with a polished and brushed steel case back, the case has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass that is convex and coated with anti-reflective coating on both the sides.

This timepiece is water resistant to a depth of 60 meters and equipped with a 30110 Caliber movement, which is a mechanical, self-winding movement. The Mark VII IW326501 has a 44-hour power reserve. The watch is fitted with a screw-down crown and a secured front glass. IWC326501 is protected against sudden drops in pressure that may affect the accuracy of the time piece. An inner soft iron case protects the watch from magnetic fields as well. The watch features an automatic date function at the 3 o’clock position on the dial.

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.

IWC is renowned for their time pieces, especially pieces from their Pilot collection which are not only iconic but imbued in history as well. Of recent, IWC released a special edition watch to benefit the ‘Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation’ after the influential twentieth century French aristocrat, aviator and poet. His most defining work, “Le Petit Prince” celebrates its 70th anniversary, and as a tribute, IWC released this watch with special touches recalling Saint-Exupéry’s story. The classic design of this Pilot involves a 40 mm matt steel case, marginally larger than its predecessor (Mark XVI) housing an IWC caliber 30110 movement. Its black dial soothingly matching its plush black leather strap.
A watch for the poet at heart.
