The Watch

Here we have a 2023 IWC Pilots Watch Automatic on Bracelet IW324010, their pilot watches have become one of IWC best best-selling collections, this model was first introduced in 2016 and is inspired by their B-Uhr navigation watches of the 1940s. The 36mm satin brushed stainless steel case curves over your wrist with a lug-to-lug length of 46mm and a case thickness of 10.5mm ensuring a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, we have a signed screw-down crown with deep knurling for extra grip. The smooth bezel holds a convex domed sapphire crystal AR coated on both sides, securely fitted to protect it from drops in air pressure above a matte black dial, an outer minute track is precisely executed, surrounding white Arabic numeral indices marking the hours coated in Super-LumiNova, at 3 o'clock a date window, at 12 o’clock we have the Flieger (the German word for flyer) large triangle and pips, Rhodium-plated sword hands filled in Super-LumiNova are complemented by a white tapered sweeping second hand. Printed at 12 o’clock we have the IWC motif and at 6 o’clock "Automatic" completes this distinctive vintage-inspired pilot watch. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with a polished embossed 1930s Junkers JU52 transport plane nicknamed the “Iron Lady”, inside a soft-iron inner case protecting the movement from magnetic fields, an automatic IWC Cal: 35111 which has a base of the Sellita SW300-1 A, 25 jewels 28,800 beats per hour, the movement is heavily modified by IWC using only 163 components. The watch comes paired with its 18mm IWC 5-link satin brushed stainless steel bracelet with a signed hidden folding clasp, and the watch comes with an (earlier) IWC presentation box and unsigned paperwork.


Personal Note

When we think of pilot watches we often think of IWC and along with that comes the typical image of a large watch... But this reference IW324010 is beautifully proportioned at 36mm and features a wonderful IWC bracelet! So for those of us who prefer a smaller watch in general, this model offers everything you want out of a traditional Pilots Watch, but done in that perfect 36mm case, so snap it up whilst you can!


The Brand

Florentine Aristo Jones founded IWC in 1868, in 1867 he applied for a European passport with the ambition to create watches using the American system of Watchmaking. This system was derived from the Federal Armories at Springfield and Harpers Ferry, where high-precision interchangeable parts were needed for armaments, this was perfect to use in watchmaking and Florentine was a pioneer in introducing it to the Swiss. In 1868 Florentine and Charles Kidder ended up in  Schaffhausen Switzerland, originally called the company F. A Jones & Co which was later changed to IWC International Watch Company. Florentine returned to the USA in 1876 where he retired and sadly passed away in 1916, his spirit carries on today in the modern IWC watches. Since 2000 they have been part of the Richmont Group.
