IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watch Automatic 36
In addition to the hour, minute and seconds hands, the Pilot’s Watch Automatic 36 also features a rapid-advance date display. The dial remains sleek and simple. An eyecatching feature on this three-hand watch is the slightly recessed inner circle, which lends the dial a sense of structure and depth. Although sportiness is not a priority for this watch, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, it is certainly “airworthy”, as the movement is enclosed in a soft-iron inner case for increased protection against magnetic fields. The mechanical 35111-calibre automatic movement has a power reserve of 42 hours. The Pilot’s Watch Automatic 36 with a blue dial comes with a blue alligator leather strap from Santoni.

His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time.

Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specializes in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titaniumaluminide and Ceratanium®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
