For over 80 years, IWC’s Pilot’s Watches have been bringing the magic of flight to all those who wear them. These prestigious watches from Schaffhausen, with their characteristic instrument design that dates back to iconic navigation watches like the Mark 11, will also be the highlight of the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer’s appearance at the forthcoming Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which takes place in Geneva from 14th to 17th January 2019.
“We will be presenting a full fleet of Pilot’s Watch novelties that exemplify our engineering prowess and our material expertise”, says Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen. “Our new Spitfire line is made using exclusively IWC-manufactured calibres. In the new TOP GUN line, we are using Ceratanium® for the first time in a Pilot’s Watch, giving rise to a completely jet black double chronograph. Last but not least, our special editions honouring the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry novella Le Petit Prince demonstrate our top-flight skills in the field of haute horlogerie.”
