Pre-SIHH 2019: IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch novelties

Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen told me:

“Alexander, we will be presenting a full fleet of Pilot’s Watch novelties that exemplify our engineering prowess and our material expertise. Our new Spitfire line is made using exclusively IWC-manufactured calibres. In the new TOP GUN line, we are using Ceratanium® for the first time in a Pilot’s Watch, giving rise to a completely jet black double chronograph. Last but not least, our special editions honouring the Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry novella Le Petit Prince demonstrate our top-flight skills in the field of haute horlogerie.”
