Swiss watchmaker IWC is paying tribute to the Patrouille Suisse, the pilots of the Swiss Air Force, with a limited edition of its popular Big Pilot's watch. A special version of the iconic watch first produced in 1940, the Big Pilot's Watch “Patrouille Suisse” is presented in grey with a case of blasted stainless steel. The watch features the largest automatic movement manufactured in-house by IWC Schaffhausen, the 51011 calibre. A special feature of the Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Patrouille Suisse” is the small seconds at “9 o’clock”, symmetrically opposite the power reserve display, a signature feature of the model. The case back features an engraving of three jet planes resembling the Northrop F-5E Tiger II of the Swiss army. Limited to 250 pieces, the IWC Big Pilot's Watch “Patrouille Suisse” will launch this month at select retailers.
