This is the year of the Pilot watches from IWC, and while there are some amazing new watches such as the IWC Big Pilot Mohammed Ali, IWC Miramar Chronograph, and the IWC Big Pilot TOP GUN Perpetual Calendar with a black finish, Scott King’s Big Pilot perpetual calendar with orange accents (IWC IW502618) from his personal private collection is still one the coolest IWC watches in the history of the Pilot’s collection and a personal favorite.
While the Big Pilot’s Watch of 1940 had a decisive influence on the appearance of the classic Pilot’s Watches, it remains over 70 years later, the most modern models continue to write the success story of this great watch legend. The 46-millimetre case encloses a soft-iron cage that protects the movement against extreme magnetic fields. Here are some details of Scott’s personal favorite IWC watch:
Collection: Pilot Watch
Case Material: Stainless Steel
Case Diameter: 46mm
Case Height: 16mm
Dial Color: Black with orange accents
Water Resistance: 6 bar
Complications: Pellaton automatic winding, Perpetual Calendar functions
