Launched in 1994 and produced until 2005, the IWC Fliegerchrongraph was perhaps one of IWC’s most popular timepieces at the time, with its historical link to IWC’s pilot watch heritage. Designed as the perfect pilot's watch, it features a stainless steel case, a heavily modified automatic Valjoux cal. 7750 movement housed within a soft-iron anti-magnetic casing (to maintain accurate performance in a cockpit) and a spectacularly legible matte black tritium dial with a rather useful day and date complication to boot. Finely finished with an educated blend of satin and polished finishing across its 39mm stainless steel case, the Fliegerchrono was clearly planned to withstand an arduous life of action in their air. A true pilots watch from a true pilots watchmaker, the Fliegerchrono is a spectacular piece of fusion between the horology and aviation sectors, in keeping with their famously tight-knit heritage.

Watch is in overall excellent to near mint condition. Case is thick and well porportioned, and the original tritium dial and hands have a nice creamy tone. The watch comes with a generic strap and buckle.
An emphatically 'IWC' timepiece in every regards, this Fliegerchrono features just about every detail that we look for in a neo-vintage timepiece from its interesting history and original parts to its timeless design and technically astute movement. With its original tritium dial and hands still intact, this is a wonderful example to add to your collection.
