Sell Your IWC Pilot Watch

Aptly named the IWC Pilot, this collection of luxury timepieces was originally created for pilots and all involved in the sky-high industry. It has become the standard all other pilot-style watch brands are measured against. Inspired by airplane instruments, these watches are just as useful as they are stylish. Many models have crystals made to stand sudden drops in pressure, movements protected against magnetism and helpful complications like a chronograph or a world timer.

Created in 1936, the IWC Pilot was designed with flying in mind. In 1940, the company built the first pilot’s watch with an ample 55 millimeter diameter. Then in 1948, the IWC Pilot watches became the timepieces of the Royal Air Force. This watch was worn on the wrists of fighter pilots over WWII battlefields. The models today still have a generous diameter as a nod to the pilot’s needs of at-a-glance time for targeting and navigation.

Distinguishing Features

With a collection that has been around so long and has such a broad range of models, it can be difficult to nail down a few distinguishing features. This is the case with the IWC Pilot. Some constants throughout each one of these models is the fashionable manner in which instruments are included in the design and an oversized crown.
