As a special, limited edition of just 15 pieces, IWC created a version of their ubiquitously popular Big Pilot’s watch in a 46.2mm wide platinum case with silver toned dial. This is the only platinum version of this style piece available. The sharp looking upper-luxury refresh of the piece has the famous IWC Calibre 5111 automatic movement with a power reserve of over 7 days! The power reserve indicator on the dial in in black.
Few platinum watches are this functional. Even if you are in a room with people who all have an IWC Pilot watch, you can be pretty sure no one is going to have some like yours. “Steel? No this isn’t steel. Platinum baby….” The monochromatic watch features a matching alligator aviator style strap (with rivets), and a pretty fantastically cool looking design. This is part of the power of being Tourneau, that you can get brands to do highly special edition pieces for you. If you can find one still available.
