The IWC Big Pilot’s watch that was produced in 2002 was the watch that pushed me to wear a bigger watch than 44mm and I have never looked back since! It’s iconic, rugged, masculine and has a lot under the hood to back it up! The dial was inspired by the original model from the fifties and is a must have piece for any watch collector in my opinon. I am happy to announce that Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen, can now confirm that IWC will be producing this watch in titanium in a limited edition of 100 pieces, individually numbered. Delivery is scheduled for May 2018, and retail price will be confirmed in December of 2017.
I am excited to see how this watch feels. TItanium is half the weight of stainless steel so it will be interesting to see how it plays out to say the least. Please stay tuned!
