Big is Beau­ti­ful

This gi­ant pi­lot watch from IWC is meant to do one thing, and it does it ex­tremely well: Leave a last­ing first im­pres­sion. It has ev­ery­thing that made the orig­i­nal vin­tage de­sign from the 1940s such a hit, from the leg­i­bil­ity to a crown that’s eas­ily op­er­ated even when one is wear­ing gloves. Ad­di­tions like a pair of riv­ets on the thick calf­skin strap and the tri­an­gle with two dots at 12 o’clock are the ic­ing on the cake, al­though they ac­tu­ally play an im­por­tant role for a real pi­lot. It is not for ev­ery­one, ob­vi­ously; but since this is the largest pi­lot watch from the Schaffhausen­based house to­day and is lim­ited to 100 units, it is a def­i­nite IWC col­lec­tor’s piece.
