Big Pilot's Watch ref. 5002-01

In the early days of aviation, wristwatches specifically for aviators were very rare, so most pilots were oriented with the aid of pocket watches. The first Pilot's Watch was built by iwc in 1936 . In 1940 the Big Pilot J52 t.s.c. was designed to military specifications, easily exceeding the chronometric requirements and technical standards for pilot use in the famous JU52 bomber. Because of its great reliability it opened the skies to safer flying experiences, just as the examples of the time still are today, always operating as on day one.

(production techniques)
The most faithful recreation of the Big Pilot's myth of the 1940s is found in this contemporary reference that comes alive with an excellent mechanism from the prestigious 5000-caliber family. A machine body composed of some 300 pieces of exclusive iwc manufacture. Its steel and platinum winding rotor is among the largest ever produced and the legendary "Pellaton" ratchet winding system manages to accumulate energy for a power reserve of more than 7 days. The steel case also encloses a soft iron cage still relevant to military guidelines, designed to protect against magnetic fields. A large crown for quick gripping even with gloves, great legibility and the useful reference of the north pole at 12, the only orientation tool for pilots of the time.
Reference 5002 is surely the rarest and most iconic modern series of the entire Big Pilot's production. Small details that only great enthusiasts can notice; the most authentic and genuine representation of the Iwc b-Uhern myth. Stunning watch, unique charm.

Complete kit: Iwc wooden box, outer box, instruction booklet, service booklet, a new Iwc crocodile strap with deployant and first purchase warranty from 2003. Currently fully serviced by our specialized Iwc workshop and refurbished to new life. Comes in excellent overall condition, guaranteed 24 months.
