IWC Big Pilot - A Big Deal

The IWC Big Pilot is a big watch - all 46mm of it! But for a good reason too as they need to be legible during flight in the days before auto-pilot was invented.

The "original" Big Pilot ref 5002 is more "pure" to me as the dial is reminiscent of the old pilots watch. With the newer ref 5004, the looks somewhat more "modern".

Stay tuned for another blog on this incredible piece - what they call the Big Pilot Transitional. Thanks to a good friend who allowed me to shoot this piece.
