It struck me, looking at the IWC Big Pilot DFB, that we don’t see enough watches in this colour combo (silver dial in a silver coloured case). I think it looks really good, don’t you?
Whilst I love this piece I couldn’t buy one though. And not just due to financial sensibilities. As an English/Australian I’m not sure I should be sporting a watch made in support of Germany’s Euro 2012 hopes!
Only 250 lucky Deutschlanders will be able to get their hands on one anyway, it being a limited edition.
It’s a rather large 46mm piece, in stainless steel. There’s an AR-coated sapphire crystal and water resistance to 60 meters (so no taking a dive then Germany. Haha!).
The dial is rhodium-plated, in a sun-pattern finish.
Power comes via the automatic IWC in-house caliber 51011. This has 42 jewels, beats at 21,600 vph and holds a power reserve of 168 hours (7 days) – shown on the dial.
Really very nice.
Can I have one for anyone else but Germany though please? :-)
