Launched in 2002, the IWC Big Pilot watch is perhaps the most recognisable IWC watch. The oversized stainless steel case houses one of the largest automatic watch movements in the world – the IWC-manufactured 5111. This ultimate flying companion earned its name for the oversized crown, which enabled easy handling for pilots of the past who had to wear gloves in open air cockpits, and today gives diehard fans an indent in the wrist which they wear with pride. The reliability is enhanced by a 7 day power reserve.
