IWC – Pilot’s Watch Chronograph – IW377704
Precision, functionality and reliability: these are the qualities that set the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph apart. Compared with its predecessor, the stainless-steel case, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, has grown by 1 millimetre. The dial design, too, has been slightly modified: the date window at ‘3 o’clock’ now leans on the altimeter found in a cockpit and takes the form of a vertical triple date display. This modification gives an even more emphatic instrument look to the Chronograph, which, thanks to the clearly structured chapter ring on the matte-black dial, the propeller-like hands and the triangular index at ’12 o’clock’, leaves no doubt as to its Pilot’s Watch DNA. The hands are completely coated with luminescent material and guarantee excellent legibility even when visibility is poor. Thanks to the robust 79320-calibre Chronograph movement, it is possible to record single and aggregate times of up to 12 hours. With its soft-iron inner case, it is optimally shielded against the influence of magnetic fields. The Pilot’s Watch Chrongraph is available with a stainless-steel bracelet and fine adjustment clasp, which was developed in 2012 and with which the length can be adjusted simply and to exact measurements. The watch is also available with a black alligator leather strap and a classic pin buckle.
