The IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph
Edition “Patrouille Suisse”
IWC has debuted a new limited edition Pilot's watch, the IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Patrouille Suisse” . This is the second time the maison from Schaffausen names a Pilot watch after the renowned Swiss aerobat team, after having launched some years ago a limited edition Pilot chronograph.
What distinguishes this limited edition timepiece from the stock model are its shot-blasted stainless steel case, its grey dial and the engraving on the case back that alludes to the Northrop F-5E Tiger II jet fighters used by the Swiss aerobat team. IWC is actually not using the official team logo as it is, I think, being used by Breilting which officially partners with the Patrouille Suisse and has released a special edition of its Chronomat GMT ( HERE is our article).
The IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Patrouille Suisse” is the collector's edition of the IWC classic split seconds chrono and boasts its same features: has a 46mm wide and 17,5mm thick case, is powered by the 79230 caliber (not in-house), has a soft iron inner case to protect the movement against magnetic fields and will be produced in just 250 pieces , available mainly at the IWC 's swiss boutiques and retailers.
