Two years ago IWC Schaffhausen created the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor” in collaboration with instructors based on the Naval Air Station Leemore in California.…
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-Exupéry novella Le Petit Prince demonstrate our top-flight skills in the field of haute horlogerie.”
Today I can only offer you a sneak preview.
These are the watches that are no longer embargoed…
Here comes my third review and the next highlights of the SIHH 2018.
It is time to talk about the 150 the anniversary of IWC and it’s “150 Years Anniversary” editions.
There are more brands to come in the next days, as well as some general thoughts about the industry and where we watch aficionados are heading to.
For me it is time to look back, but I do also invite YOU to share YOUR thoughts with us.
