In 1994, IWC launched the first pilot-operated chronograph with a self-winding mechanical movement (model: 3706). With its highly recognizable instrument dial design, it was quickly favored by watchmakers worldwide. success. Today, the new Pilot’s Chronograph (model: IW377724) is inspired by the classic prototype design and leads the trend with a new look. Unlike other chronographs currently available in the Pilot Collection, the dial of the new watch has a short-time chronograph scale with a recordable accuracy of 1/4 second. The rectangular rod-shaped pointer is coated with a beige luminous coating, which can be clearly read even in the dark. A green fabric strap adds sporty design.
The watch is equipped with a solid and reliable caliber 79320, which can accurately count up to 12 hours. The minutes and hours can be read through the small dials at ’12 o’clock’ and ‘6 o’clock’. Another useful feature on the dial is the day of the week display, located at the ‘3 o’clock’ position. Like all IWC Pilot’s Watches, the movement is protected from magnetic interference by an antimagnetic soft iron inner case, and the glass mirror can withstand the sudden drop in air pressure in the cockpit of the aircraft without loosening it.
