More about IWC IW501005 Big Pilot BRONZE Black Dial

This is a bronze IWC Big Pilot bronze Black Dial IW501005. It has a Santoni calfskin strap with an IWC bronze tang buckle, and a scratch resistant domed sapphire crystal with antireflective coating on both sides, and secured against displacement by sudden drops in air pressure. It has a screw down pilot-shaped conical winding crown, and a screw down solid stainless steel case back engraved with "IWC – BIG PILOT'S WATCH HERITAGE – 5 BAR – ONE OUT OF 1500," and a serial number. There is a soft iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields. The 46mm diameter solid two-body case, curved lugs, and "cupped" bezel, are polished bronze. The bronze is a high tech alloy with aluminum, making it harder and more durable. It has a black dial with retro cream-colored SuperLuminova Arabic hour markers and baton indices around a perimeter minute/second scale with the IWC “triangle” with a dot on each side, located at 12 o’clock. It includes blued "Spitfire" propeller-shaped hands with vintage cream luminous inserts, like the World War II Beobachtungsuhr (navigator's watch) made for the German air force. There is a bronze center sweep second hand with a blued counter balance, a date aperture window is at the 6 o'clock position, and there is a recessed black power reserve subsidiary dial with cream luminescent markers, Arabic numerals, and red accents. It's water resistant to 60 meters/196 feet, and it has a 6-day, 168-hour power reserve at full winding. The 15.4mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

This IWC Big Pilot bronze Black Dial IW501005 has a mechanical automatic self-winding IWC Caliber 52110 movement. It's rhodium plated with Cotes de Geneve embellishment, and perlage. It's constructed with a Pellaton automatic winding mechanism, 31 jewels, a central hacking seconds device for precision time setting, and blued screws. It includes a 21K gold skeletonized rotor, and the mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vph (4.0 Hz).

The IWC Big Pilot bronze black dial IW501005 was introduced in 2017 in a limited edition of 1500 examples.
