Since the launch of the first IWC Pilot’s watch 85 years ago, the IWC Pilot’s collection has become IWC’s signature watch collection. In order to meet the pilot’s demand for chronograph watches to the greatest extent, the brand continues to explore and is committed to creating the most professional flight timepieces. In September of this year, IWC added three new ceramic chronograph watches to the pilot series, injecting fresh energy into this classic series. Today we want to appreciate the “Royal Maces” special edition watch, and then I will introduce it to you in an all-round way. (Watch model: IW389107)
IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “Royal Maces” IW389107, this design is inspired by the brand’s cooperation with the US Navy Elite Squadron. As can be seen from the name of the watch, the design of this watch is closely related to the “Royal Maces” Navy Squadron. . The whole watch adopts black and yellow color scheme, which is low-key and calm without losing vitality.
The watch case is made of black zirconia ceramic, a material with high hardness and strong corrosion resistance, which is now favored by the watchmaking industry. The shell is not the latest 41mm, but returns to the original large size, with a diameter of 44.5mm, which is in line with the tough and unrestrained temperament of “Dafei”.
The dial is also made of black ceramic with yellow accents. The design style continues the IWC cockpit instrument style, with large hour markers and a classic triangular logo at 12 o’clock, which are highly recognizable. There are small seconds, 12-hour chronograph and 30-minute chronograph at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock on the dial. The date and week display window is located at 3 o’clock, and the design of yellow characters on a black background is eye-catching.
The brand designer placed the badge of the squadron on the small seconds dial to enrich the details of the watch. The hands of the watch and the signs at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock are all coated with luminous materials, which emit blue light in low-light environments to light up the darkness. The screw-in crown and chronograph button on the side of the watch are made of Ceratanium® porcelain titanium material, and the chronograph button is also decorated with yellow, echoing the overall style of the watch. Turning to the back of the watch, you can see that the official name of the squadron “VFA-27” and the squadron’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter-attack aircraft are engraved on the grade 5 titanium case cover.
