IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watches, Jubilee collection

IWC Schaffhausen unveiled three limited-edition Pilot’s Watches with lacquered dials at the SIHH as part of the Jubilee collection to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary.

IWC is adding three models to its Pilot’s Watch line in its anniversary year. All three models feature the design of the Jubilee collection. They can be recognised by their characteristic dials produced using a complex lacquering process in white or blue.

The Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “150 Years” (Ref. IW502708), in stainless steel with blue dial, is the only model in the collection with an annual calendar. Production is limited to 100 watches.
The annual calendar has an American-format display for the month, date and day in three separate windows on the dial and requires adjustment only once a year at the end of February. The Pellaton winding of the IWC-manufactured calibre 52850 comes with wear-proof ceramic components and generates a 7-day power reserve in two barrels. The movement is visible through the sapphire-glass back.

Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date Edition “150 Years” (Ref. 5105) is the first Big Pilot’s Watch from IWC with a date display featuring large numerals beneath the triangular index at “12 o’clock”. Two limited-edition models are available, each restricted to 100 watches, in stainless steel with blue dial (Ref. IW510503) or white dial(Ref. IW510504).

When creating the IWC-manufactured calibre 59235, the watch designers added a date display with large numerals to the hand-wound calibre 59210 with a power reserve of 8 days. The date is displayed using a double date ring, with one disc containing the tens and another disc containing the units. The power reserve display had to be positioned on the reverse side so that the dial could preserve the uncluttered style that is characteristic of Pilot’s Watches.
To this end, the soft-iron cage was fitted with a circular display window without compromising protection against magnetic fields.
