The IWC Schaffhausen Pilot's Watches Collection

Ernst Jakob homberger (1869-1955), IWC Managing Director during the 1930s, had two sons who were so passionate about aviation that they decided to manufacture the first IWC “Special Watch for Pilots” in 1936. It was particularly robust and resistant to fluctuations in temperature in the range of -40 degree to +40 degree Celsius, and also anti-magnetic.

IWC influenced the cockpit-instrument look of classic pilot’s watches during the 1930s and 1940s. The white triangular index at “12 o’clock” allowed pilots in the cockpit to instantly recognize the position of the hands and the time at a glance. The upright equilateral triangle has two dots at either side to make the dial easier to read, and is also luminescent.

The striking conical crown of the Big Pilot’s Watch harks back to the pioneering days of aviation, when pilots had to face the elements in unheated cockpits. The original Pilot’s Watches had particularly large crowns that were easy to grip so that they could be set and wound by a pilot wearing thick gloves and a padded flight suit.
