Limited to 100 pieces, iconic IWC Big Pilot’s Watch available only at Bucherer, with steel case (46.5 mm), black dial with blue index and hands, manual winding IWC calibre 59235.

It’s not just the heroes of the sky who love the new IWC Schaffhausen Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date for Bucherer BLUE

The long-standing partnership between Bucherer and IWC Schaffhausen has now resulted in the fourth creation for Bucherer BLUE. It draws on the success of the three previous Bucherer BLUE Portugieser models yet manages to be completely different at the same time. The special edition is based on the successful Big Pilot’s Watch and features a rare big date complication.

The Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date Bucherer BLUE marks a double-first: it is both the first Big Pilot’s Watch for Bucherer BLUE and the first partnership edition of the infamous Pilot’s Watch to feature a big date. This rare complication on a Big Pilot’s Watch will thrill collectors in particular. Limited to 100 pieces this special timepiece is available exclusively at Bucherer. For aficionados of special watches, this new BLUE creation is a desirable must-have. The colour blue has a special symbolism for this particular Pilot’s Watch, representing freedom of the skies and the longing for distant destinations and endless horizons.

Connoisseurs of the IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watches appreciate these pieces for their versatility and their perfect blend of athleticism, functionality and elegance. This new Bucherer BLUE timepiece is an ideal match for anyone seeking exclusive timepieces and a love for special editions expressing their own individuality. The design of the IWC Schaffhausen Big Pilot’s Watch has achieved cult status, and its 46.2 mm size alone is a sensation. The big date display beneath the triangular index at 12 o’clock has been perfectly integrated into the uncluttered cockpit-instrument character and features a double date ring. The modern 4 Hz hand-wound movement of the IWC-manufactured 59235 calibre is a throwback to the diameter and size of IWC Schaffhausen’s pocket watch movements, renowned for their durability and accuracy. The movement features a power reserve of eight days, which is shown on the back of this model.

The combination of colours, materials and elements that give the design its distinctive masculinity and modern look has been created exclusively for Bucherer BLUE. The bold steel case contrasts with its distinctive black dial, while the striking blue index and hands glow in the dark in a luminous green. IWC Schaffhausen has interpreted the iconic instrument design in an urban and exceptional way with this model. The sports look is rounded off with a black calfskin strap. The case back has also been specially designed for Bucherer. It combines the Bucherer BLUE engraving with the round sapphire glass signature window, allowing its wearer to admire the movement and power-reserve display. This special edition further features a soft-iron cage to protect the movement against magnetic fields.
