There are many aspects of IWC that watch enthusiasts appreciate. Pioneering spirit, horological innovation, historical significance, to name but a few. Personally I admire the brands ability to simplify something that other companies go out of their way to make complicated. Case in point, this crystal clear Pilot’s Chronograph with day and date.Legible at a glance and instantly recognizable, this is one of the most user friendly chronograph you will ever gaze upon. The 42mm stainless steel case has just enough heft to be noticeable, while maintaining a subtlety often lost by other brands. On the rare occasion when I spy someone wearing an IWC Pilot’s Watch I feel the need to acknowledge their unique and tasteful choice. So don’t be surprised if, once you purchase this watch you are respectfully approached by fellow watch enthusiasts who admire your good taste. This watch does not come with box or papers.
