The Inception of IWC Pilot’s Watches

IWC Pilot’s watches are the quintessential celebration of the lengthy partnership between IWC Schaffhausen and the aviation industry, and these wristwatches manage to blend a focus upon unparalleled functionality with a stylish aesthetic. Paying homage to some of the most respected Aircraft and Air Forces the world over, these timepieces are painstakingly crafted to serve the needs of pilots in just the same way as the IWC Aquatimer watches are refined to the requirements of divers. The very first IWC Pilot’s watch was introduced in the 1930s and was created to withstand temperature fluctuations and exhibit anti-magnetic properties, but the range has evolved substantially since those early days.


IWC’s Partnership with Aviation

As you might expect, IWC Pilot’s watches come with numerous details that enable them to set the standard for aviation-inspired timepieces. For example, the crown of each Pilot’s watch is typically a distinct conical shape, which harks back to the days when pilots would need to operate them whilst wearing padded leather gloves. The dials of these watches also draw from actual cockpit instruments in terms of appearance, with a stripped-down matte-black backdrop and luminescent numerals and hands. A particularly subtle inclusion is the small triangle index at the 12 o’clock position, and this again echoes cockpit instruments by allowing the user to identify the position of the hands especially quickly.

IWC Pilot’s watches bring together quality materials and sophisticated complexities, so they’re as suited to everyday use as they are to the demands of the aviation industry. Commonly referenced favourites include the Big Pilot’s watch, which was introduced in 2002, and made use of a date aperture at the 6 o’clock position and a central second display. Some of the most celebrated IWC Pilot’s chronographs of all include the Top Gun Edition and the Spitfire Automatic that was brought into the range as a regular production watch in 2003, following a limited run in 2000. 2018 also saw some limited edition Pilot’s watches as part of the IWC Jubilee collection, so the Pilot really has become one of IWC’s flagship names.
