After launching its new TOP GUN collection at Watches and Wonders in spring, IWC Schaffhausen has added a new Racing Green colorway to its Big Pilot 43.
The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer has presented the new version of the Big Pilot’s Watch 43 in a stainless steel case with a “racing green” dial and matching rubber straps.
The brand is also introducing a new selection of colourful rubber straps.
Thanks to the EasX-CHANGE system, they can be fitted on many of IWC’s Pilot’s Watches, bringing more versatility to the collection than ever before.
The Big Pilot’s Watch impresses with a green dial and a matching rubber strap with the unique shade of green inspired by the “racing green” hue used to paint British racing cars since 1903.
Rhodium-plated hands with luminescence make the dial easier to read at night. The timepiece is powered by the IWC-manufactured 82100 calibre movement, featuring Pellaton winding with ceramic components and a power reserve of 60 hours.
In addition, IWC is introducing a carefully curated selection of coloured rubber straps.
These exceptionally durable straps which can be worn in any situation will be available in ten colours: black, blue, red, brown, yellow, green, grey, orange, light blue and olive green.
Christian Knoop, Chief Design Officer of IWC Schaffhausen, commented: “We noticed a growing desire from our customers to customise their timepiece, add a fresh touch, or express their personality.
“Our coloured rubber straps add a playful element and bring a new level of versatility to the collection. They allow our customers to choose from various colours and pick the one that best fits their style or current mood.”
The new Big Pilot’s Watch 43 will be available from June 2022 exclusively online at IWC.com and in IWC boutiques.
The timepiece is eligible for registration under the My IWC care program and benefits from a 6-year extension to the standard 2-year International Limited Warranty.
The new rubber straps will be available from summer 2022 on IWC.com and in IWC boutiques.
