THE BIG TIME. IWC Schaffhausen may have enamored many watch enthusiasts with elegant-looking watches; its pilot’s watch, however, has earned a soft spot in the hearts of big-case lovers.
This year, the Swiss brand bulks up its Big Pilot’s watch variants with a bunch of novelties, among which is the Big Pilot’s Heritage Watch 48—the number refers to the oversized 48mm case.
Don’t let the number scare you, though, this timepiece is still impressively elegant. The light titanium case paired with a black dial makes an appealing presentation, enhanced by its surprisingly light weight.
The watch’s piece de resistance—and the ultimate reason for the huge casing—is the hand-wound movement caliber 59215 with 192 hours (or eight days) of power reserve.
It’s big, durable and long lasting. A complete package!
