History
In this globalised world, it is absolutely essential for business men, pilots and other travellers to have a device that can read precise time across various time zones. The IWC Pilot series, of the IWC brand, precisely caters to that compelling need. The Pilot collection, through its watch family, seeks to bring various cockpit time-keeping functions so as to make for a perfect wrist accessory. Sleek and stylishly designed, this exclusive collection of timepieces seeks to capture your sky-high aspirations by combining innovative designs with the authentic time-keeping functions.

Design
The IWC Pilots IW326201 is designed keeping in mind the requirements of worldwide users. Its case material, like most of the watches of pilot collection, is round in shape with a diameter of 45mm and height of 13.5 mm, which is made with stainless steel.  Uniquely designed, the watch flaunts a black matt finished dial and has Arabic numerals etched on it with a triangle at the 12 o’ clock position. The date window on the watch is posited at the 3 o’clock position.  
The strap material of the watch is in black leather, which provides a comfortable grip to the wrist of the wearer.

Features
The Sapphire made glass material of the dial protects it from any accidental scratches. The water resistant capability of the watch, which is to a depth of 60 meters, reduces the chances of malfunction even if one wears it when out in the rain. The most unique feature in the watch is its 24-hour world timer function, which means if you set the ring correctly using the crown of the watch, the 24 hour ring enables the wearer to view time in all 24 hour zones, including UTC (Universal Time Coordinated). Also, if the wearer passes through one or more time zones, the time on the watch can be adjusted one hour backwards or forward to show current local time, even when crossing International Date Line.

 

History
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.


Features
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.


Associations
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 has many revered watches amongst its ranks, all of which boast history unique to each collection. Most watches of each collection get updated every few years or so, but every now and then a completely new watch is introduced. The new IWC Pilot Worldtimer is typical of a watch from the Pilot collection, but with a world time complication especially useful for people who frequent many time-zones. Its dial design and colour is similar to other IWC Pilot watches including large, very legible Arabic font numerals, uniquely missing the 12, 3, 6 and 9 indices. Also unique to the watch is a rotatable 24 hours ring that is half colored in white with black markers and in black with white markers; and the peripheral ring with 24 cities, both in red, showing 24 timezones around the world. Rotate the hour ring and the time can be read in all 24 timezones at once. For the traveler who bides his time.
