Recap -The Best Clocks Introduced by IWC in 2021

In the year that IWC Schaffhausen has put the (Big) Pilot’s Watch bands at a very high level, we have seen many exciting copies being released. This could be a combination of colors, weapons, or moving colors. Although we have seen strange things outside of the (Big) Pilot’s Watch Tower, the quintessential Flieger Uhr written by IWC was very bad. With that in mind, we went through all the new varieties and selected five that we really enjoyed. Here are the best IWC watches released in 2021.

IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Tribute to 3705

We start with the tax component, which is dedicated to the most important watch in the history of IWC airline watches. The IWC Pilot’s Chronograph Tribute to 3705 used the spirit of the 1994 IWC Fliegerchronograph Keramik, popularly known as 3705. The new version features a 41mm black matte-black Ceratanium case, with bezel, treads, crowns, back and straps. The rest of the architecture is very close to the original 3705. Using chronograph 69380, which was designed to replace the Valjoux 7750, the Tribute to 3705 shows the same as the old ones, but with a smaller second at 6 instead of 9 o’clock.

IWC Big Pilot Watch 43

The launch of the IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43 divided the enthusiasts into two camps after their launch. On the other hand, we saw people receiving a small size with both hands, and others who saw that they were no longer “true” Big Pilot. No matter which side you are in, IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43 has a lot of features that make up an IWC matching watch. The smaller case has the same build, with a larger crown and a thin bezel. Dial is clear and comes in black or sunray brushed blue. A sapphire sapphire cover reveals a house 82100 caliber, which uses a Pellaton-type construction machine. The power station is very exciting for 60 hours. The IWC Big Pilot’s Watch 43 is also equipped with a new fast-moving cable and bracelets.
