Big Pilot's Heritage Watch 48

IWC 2016

ref. IW510301
Men's

A worthy heir to the Pilot's Watch that shot to fame on its release in 1940, the Big Pilot's Heritage Watch 48 in many respects stays faithful to the original design, despite dropping the imposing 55-mm diameter of the historic model in favour of a 48-mm size for easy, everyday wear. The dial makes use of this ample space to display hours, minutes, small seconds and date with maximum legibility and no shortage of vintage appeal. A large crown extends from the titanium case which houses a manual-winding movement that delivers on reliability with a guaranteed power reserve of eight days.
