IWC Schaffhausen introduces new watch for those who like to wear it on their right wrist
August 9, 2019: In a first for the brand, IWC Schaffhausen has presented a new version of its Big Pilot’s Watch to be worn on the right wrist, known as the Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Right-hander”.
It has a generously proportioned case diameter of 46.2 mm, and the same eye-catching design seen throughout the family, which imitates easy-to-read cockpit instruments. The twist in this revised edition is the positioning of the crown, which is located on the left-hand side of the case. The “Right-hander” is much more practical to operate for those who wear their watch on the right wrist
Driven by an IWC-manufactured 52010 calibre, the “Right-hander” has a stainless-steel case with a soft-iron inner case, which protects the movement against the effects of magnetic fields. The automatic Pellaton winding is fitted with ceramic components and builds up a seven-day power reserve in the twin barrels.
The strap is crafted in black calfskin leather. The slate-coloured dial features a power-reserve display situated at “9 o’clock”, a small seconds hand at “3 o’clock”, and a date display at “6 o’clock”. The luminescent indices and hands guarantee optimum legibility.
The new watch - released as an edition of 250 pieces - is available at IWC boutiques and authorised retailers from August 2019 with three months exclusivity in Australia and France.
