The origin of this Pilot which is one of the iconic collections of IWC can date back to the time before the Second World War and at that time it was called B-Uhren. As the military-issued pilot watch, it was given to German Army. With the clear and understated dial, large size, and the movement surrounded by the soft iron, the timepiece is very recognizable.
Nevertheless, IWC Pilot’s watch was established in 2002 and in 2016, the appearance of the pilot watches had been adjusted. 46 mm IWC has been driven by calibre 52110, providing a power reserve of 7 days. The strong appearance has attracted lots of men.
2, Breguet Type XX – XXI – XXII copy watch with stainless steel case
Breguet has a long history in aviation industry. The most interesting thing is that la Société des Ateliers d’Aviation Louis Breguet was established by Louis Le Charleston Breguet, the lineal descendant of the greatest watchmaker in the world.
In the 1950s, the French Naval Air Force commissioned a number of watchmaking brands to produce “Type 20” pilot chronographs, including Breguet. In the 1990s, the Type XX returned to Breguet’s watch collection in a civilian version with an automatic movement.
