IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watch Chronograph
This timepiece revisits the design of the first « Fliegerchronograph » from 1994.
In 1994, IWC presented the first mechanical Pilot's Chronograph, reference 3706. With its unmistakeable instrument-inspired dial, the watch rapidly gained a global fan base, contributing vastly to the success of the Pilot's Watches. Now the classic is returning with an almost unchanged design and with a 43 mm stainless steel case, water rsistant to 60 meters.
The dial the Pilot's Watch Chronograph Ref. IW377724 is based on the historic original design and is just as new and contemporary as its predecessor in its time. In contrast to the Pilot's Watch Chronographs in the current collection, this watch has a quarter-seconds scale for measuring short periods of time. The rectangular hands are filled with a beige luminous material, making them easy to read, even at night. A green textile strap contributes to its sporty design.

The robust 79320 calibre chronograph movement enables the watch to be used as a stopwatch and for aggregate timing of up to 12 hours. Beating at the frequency of 28'800 vph, it offers a 44-hour power reserve. The minutes and hours are displayed on the two subdials at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. Another useful function is the date and day display. As with all of IWC's Pilot's Watches, the movement is protected against magnetic fields by a soft iron cage, the glass is specially secured against displacement caused by sudden drops in air pressure in the cockpit, and the crown is screwed.
