Tracing its origins as far back as WWII, the IWC Big Pilot collection has evolved into one of the watchmaker’s most emblematic timepieces. Featuring unwavering design language inspired by the B-Uhr pilot's watch worn by German pilots, the Luftwaffe, the Big Pilot collection has been defined bit its large 46-48mm diameter, oversized deeply knurled crown, and incredibly legible dial. However, its 46-48mm construction has certainly proven to be prohibitive for most collectors, and so in 2021, IWC launched a handful of smaller Big Pilot references, one of which being the ref. IW329304 that we have here. Featuring a 43mm diameter, the IW329304 is a considerably more wearable option for collectors that want to explore IWC’s historically-inspired pilot’s watches without having to wear something that simply won’t fit their wrist. Featuring a bright blue dial with white Arabic numerals and a stunning stainless steel bracelet, the IW329304 is a fantastic timepiece that now opens the doors for collectors to enjoy IWC’s impressive craftsmanship and rich heritage, all of which it boasts in abundance.
