IWC launches “Right-Hander” Edition
The watch has a stainless-steel case with a soft-iron inner case, which protects the movement against the effects of magnetic fields
IWC Schaffhausen for the first time has launched a watch for right-handers. The watch is a new version of its popular Big Pilot’s watch. This special edition of the classic IWC model will be known as the Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Right-Hander”
The watch is inspired by the Big Pilot’s Watch Calibre 52 TSC from the 1940s and has a generously proportioned case diameter of 46.2 millimeters, as well as the same eye-catching design seen throughout the family, which imitates easy-to-read cockpit instruments. The “Right-hander” is a practical option for those who wear their watch on the right wrist. Given that almost 40 percent of pilots are thought to be left-handed, and therefore wear their watches on the right, it is perhaps a fitting development for this IWC line, which has such a rich history in the field of aviation.
“I am delighted that we’ve revisited one of the most recognizable 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,” said Christopher Grainger-Herr, CEP of IWC Schaffhausen in a statement.
The Swiss watch manufacturer and one of the world’s leading brands in luxury watch segment, IWC Schaffhausen has been producing timepieces of lasting value since 1868. The company has gained international reputation based on passion for innovative solutions and technical ingenuity.
