IWC Schaffhausen has unveiled a new piece under its Big Pilot’s Watch collection. Named the Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Right-hander”, this IWC creation is an ideal pick for those who wear their watch on the right wrist.

Inspired by the iconic Big Pilot’s Watch Calibre 52 TSC from the 1940s, the special edition is limited to just 250 pieces.

Commenting on this new creation, Christoph Grainger-Herr, chief executive officer, IWC Schaffhausen said, “I am delighted that we have revisited one of the most recognisable icons in the IWC portfolio for this special edition.

“We are always striving to push the boundaries of engineering and design, and this new watch really exemplifies this drive. It has all the signature elements you’d expect, but with a crucial difference.”

The highlight of the new Right-hander edition is the positioning of the conical- shaped crown, located on the left-hand side of the case.

Powered by  IWC-manufactured 52010 calibre, the watch comes with a stainless-steel case with a soft-iron inner case that protects the movement against effects of magnetic fields. In addition to this, the automatic Pellaton winding is equipped with ceramic components and builds up a seven-day power reserve in the twin barrels.

The Right-hander edition is fitted a black calfskin leather strap. Power-reserve display situated at 9 o’clock, a small seconds hand at 3 o’clock, and a date display at 6 o’clock are some other features of this watch. The luminescent indices and hands offer great legibility, even at night or in poor visibility conditions.
