In this 4K-hands-on-video I do present you one of the IWC Schaffhausen novelties 2021. "The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 is building on the success of our Spitfire chronographs from 2019, we are now introducing the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph 41 into our classic collection. Thanks to the quick-change system and a choice of straps, the chronographs can be adapted swiftly to different surroundings. Combined with the now 10 bar water-resistant case, this versatility makes them perfect companions for adventures in the air, on the ground or by the water. To underline our ongoing commitment to innovation and technical excellence, we also fitted the new model with our in-house 69385 calibre chronograph movement, which is visible through a sapphire glass back,” explained me Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

All new models feature a quick-change system, which allows the wearer to quickly and easily change the strap or bracelet. Available as accessories in IWC boutiques or online on IWC.com is a choice of calfskin and rubber straps in attractive colours, as well as a new stainless steel bracelet with fine adjustment system and a slimmer shape for improved comfort and ergonomics. The reworked case construction ensures the chronographs are now water-resistant to 10 bar.

Three references are available:
Ref. IW329301: Stainless steel case, black dial, rhodium-plated hands, brown calf leather strap.

With the Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar (Ref. IW503605), the legendary complication marks its
return to the classic collection. The timepiece features a stainless steel case, a blue dial, and rhodium-plated hands. The date display and power reserve are located at 3 o’clock, the month display at 6 o’clock. The weekday display and the small seconds share the subdial at 9 o’clock. The double moon phase display at 12 o’clock correctly depicts the moon phase for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and only needs to be adjusted by one day after 577.5 years.
